As you may remember, Beijing hosted the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. As an athlete I always get chills when visiting Olympic sites. This one had such iconic stadiums that it was hard to suppress my excitement.
The famous Water Cube is now used as a water park and swim facility. So if you want to swim where the Olympians did go ahead! Tours are available for the Bird’s Nest as well so you can check it out.
The Green features a dragon shaped lake and lots of shopping/food areas.
