Certificate of Excellence
We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Beijing Olympic Sites Self-Guided Tour

The successful Beijing 2008 Olympic Games has left a deep impression on people’s mind in the world. For many foreign visitors, the temptation is great to visit the Bird’Nest (Beijing National Stadium ) and Water Cube (Beijign National Aquatics Center).

Subway is highly recommended

Bird's NestBoth Bird’s Nest and Water Cube ( Olympic Sites ) are easily accessible through subway, cheap and fast. Take Subway Line 10 and get off at Beitucheng Station. Then interchange for Subway Line 8 and get off at Olympic Park ( Olympic Green ). Once you come out from the subway, you are inside the Olympic Park. The park is free to the public. If you are familiar with Beijing public bus system, taking a bus is also advisable due to its numerous buses available:
Bus 409, 426, 645, 653, 656, 658, 660, 689, 694, 740, 740, 753, 758, 803, 839, 849, 850, 858.
Taxi is not recommended mainly due to the fact it is hard to find a parking lot. So very often your driver has to stop in a parking area far from the Olympic Park and you have to walk a long distance before you get to the park.

An evening tour better than a daytime visit

Water CubeOf course, during the daytime, you can have a close look at their true faces. But the bird’s nest is so much concrete and the water cube looks lifeless. Just too little shade and shelter provided by trees, very hot in summer! If you come here in the evening, things are a world of difference! The Water Cube displays a different color pattern each evening, looking like a fantastic magic box. It is said that solar panel inside the nest collects the sun’s rays by the daytime and light the bird’s nest by night. A illuminated bird’nest gives you much for thinking!

Outside or inside?

Many people just take some pictures from their outside; some prefer to go inside exploring. Which is better? It all depends. If you have limited time, or you are not interested in what is going on inside, then just have a glimpse. That’s all right. If you are more curious about the inner structures of the two buildings, inside visiting is high recommended if you have sufficient time.
Opening time and Entrance fee for Bird’s Nest:
09:00 – 18:00
Bird’s Nest RMB 50
Water Cube: RMB30
Water Park: RM 200
Swimming only: RMB 50

Avoid public holiday or weekend

If you are not interested in the people-watching, just avoid coming here on public holiday and weekend. On the tourist season, tickets are hard to get. You have to line up for quite some time before you buy entrance tickets. The Olympic Sites don’t serve Beijing public very well in terms of restaurants, drinkable water, shade shelters. They look solid, a little lifeless and empty. Don’t expect too much from the fancy buildings
