Exciting Bike Tour in Olympic Stadium

I have been to Beijing many years ago before 2008, so I didn't been to the famous Olympic Stadium. This time I choose the Half Day Tour to the Olympic Stadium during my short Beijing trip. Thanks to the good weather, the bike tour is full of enjoyment.

After lunch I began the bike tour. The whole Olympic Park is huge, may be a couple of miles or more from one end to the other. There is the Olympic Forest Park at the end, a large park with a big lake in the middle. There are also many petty dealers selling souvenirs along the street.

The Water Cube enjoys very charming scenery at night. But during the day time, it is not so attractive. The center is used for swimming, diving, synchronized swimming and water-polo games during the Olympic Games 2008. After the games, the center turn into a large water recreational center open to the public. It is dubbed "cube" because of its semi-transparent "bubbles" spread out all over its surface with a shape very similar to the structure of "H2O".

Panoramic View of Bird Nest

While I like the Bird's Nest better. The Bird's Nest is an incredible structure and I was filled with awe when I remembered the Olympic history that was made there in 2008. The Bird's Nest was pretty impressive and along with the water cube were good fun to look around and explore. I really wanted to go inside the nest, especially after watching the opening ceremony in 2008. There was no entrance onto the running track unless you paid to ride on one of those standing up scooters. I didn't mind paying for it as I'd never been on one before!

The main area near the Bird's Nest and the Water Cube had many tourists all the times. Anything to north to the forest park is not that many people. There are many ginkgo trees for the landscape. Walking along the street with the sing: One World One Dream, how excellent feeling!

The 3 hours bike tour is over. I really have a wonderful time here. In the evening I would like to enjoy the traditional Peking Opera. I hope that will be perfect. Anyway, thank you very much to my experienced tour guide.
