    The site of the 29th Beijing Olympics, the Beijing Olympic Park is both a cultural and architectural treasure. In 2008, all eyes were on China as the opening ceremonies showed all who witnessed it the economic power the country has become.

  • The Bird's Nest

    The centerpiece of the Olympic Park, the Bird's Nest is an architectural feat. The nickname comes from the shape and design of the building, as well as the idea that a bird's nest is a rare and expensive delicacy in China, eaten only on special occasions.

    Formally known as the National Aquatics Center, the Water Cube hosted the water sports events of the Olympics. The building is a cuboid with a motif inspired by both soap bubbles and body cells.

Description

In 2008, the remarkable 29th Olympic Games were held in Beijing successfully. As the game site, the Olympic Park attracted the whole world's attention. It sat at the north end of the axis of the metropolis. The axis, the most important cultural vein of the city, presents a blend of urban artificial sights with natural scenery. The most famous and beautiful buildings in the park are the National Stadium and the National Aquatics Center. The National Stadium is also called "The Bird's Nest" due to its appearance. It hosted the opening and closing ceremonies, athletics, and football finals of the Olympics. The stadium has room for 91,000 spectators. The National Aquatics Center is known as the Water Cube. It hosted the swimming, diving and synchronized swimming events. It has a capacity of 17,000 and is located next to the National Stadium.

After lunch, the Hutong tour starts from the Drum & Bell Tower. Next, you will take to the streets of old Beijing by rickshaw, also known as pedicab. This portion of the tour allows you to get a taste of life in the city as your driver pedals through the old, narrow streets, or Hutongs. It includes a stop to visit the home of a real Chinese family.
