THE BIRD'S NEST STADIUM
The Bird's Nest Stadium, or more properly Beijing National Stadium, is a must-see for its architectural weirdness. It really does look like a giant bird's nest. The stadium is located within the Olympic Park area of Beijing, and the nearest Metro is Olympic Park. When you come out of the Metro you will also find a large shopping centre with supermarkets and lots of retail outlets. The Olympic Park is free to visit, although you will have to go through a security check. We went there mainly to visit the amazing aqua park that was built inside the aquatics centre after the Olympic Games were over.
