Bird's Nest and Water Cube - Perfect Modern Buildings

Always want to appreciate the Beijing Bird Nest for Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, yesterday, we finally success to achieve the desire. Out of the station of Olympic Center in Subway Line 8, we walked the way to the station of Olympic Park. On the way, we saw the Bird Nest, Water Cube, National Conference Center, etc.

Bird's Nest

It is a must –see for any Olympic fan, and the hands down best looking stadium in the world. The architect uses these random diagonals for a structure in a mesh to form the stadium. It looks very close to get to the Bird Nest, but it cost us long time to walk to there and had short distance chance to take pictures. From its outward appearance, I was addicted into its delicate design and exquisite skills. Contrary to its seemingly random appearance, strict rule-based methods were employed in the stadium’s construction, and each half of the 44,000 ton-steel shell is basically identical in design. During the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, the opening ceremony, closing ceremony, track and field meets, and men's football final will be held here. It has been become the outstanding representative in Beijing buildings, not only during the Olympic Games, but also the following times, it attracts large number of travelers to visit it.

Water Cube

Water Cube, standing opposite to Bird Nest, is the other unique building in Beijing. In 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, it held the swimming, diving, synchronized and waterball matches. Designed in a novel style, the Water Cube has a foam-like water-molecule structure, making the architecture show a unique visual effect of water flowing and embodying the mysterious beauty, especially at night.

Many people took pictures with friends and family in the long square, and everyone want to leave a memorial picture with Bird Nest and Water Cube. In autumn, there are people flying the kites in the wind. Now the Olympic Park has become a good leisure and relaxing place for ordinary people and citizens. No matter who you are, you can visit these unique buildings here without any stops. But what made me pity is the unreasonable business means. Everyone come here is very happy, but these ignominious methods make people lost all interest. Do not take pictures with the people who wear the lovely clothes such as Mickey, if you do that, they would charge you without any explain before you take picture with them.

In general, the tour to Olympic Games is very happy. I suggest travelers visit with family or friends, and that will become more interesting. You can also book this tour online with tour guide and driver, only in unbeatable price!
