Bird Nest, Water Cube & Natinal Grand Theatre light up every night?

by limct

Hi, can someone pls tell me - Beijing Bird Nest, Water Cube, National Grand Theatre - is the lights on every night or just for special occasion? I am now in Beijing but it is raining. I am leaving on Tue and would not want to miss visiting these places. However, i would be wasting my effort if the places is not light up due to the rain. Thanks.

Yes they are lit up. But frankly they are not all that interesting.

Thanks for the advice. In your opinion, should i then visit the places in the day or it's just not worth the trouble?

It ss quite interesting if you're interesting in construction and architecture. After all, the stadiums quite differ from the others in the world. The square between them is huge and impressive in some aspects.
Not difficult to get there. You need to change to the Olypmpics line from the subway.
Last year when I visited BJ the water cube was fenced and you could only watch from a distance. But still it gives you some good views...

The National Grand Theatre is near the center, near Tianamen and the Forbidden City. So, you can visit it easily and see for yourself. I only saw it during the day and was very impressed with it.

The Olympic Village, on the other hand, where the Bird's Nest and Water Cube are, was less impressive. You have to make a special trip there and there is really not that much to see there. If you have limited time, I would spend time elsewhere. MHO.

I think the lights are on every night for the Olympic Green.

Travel Tips for Beijing

Do take a tour

by amambaw

Okay, I know some people might cringe at the thought of doing a tour (tour, you mean as in TOURIST???), but for many places, having an informed guide means you get to know a lot more than the little plaques tell you.

We had one guide for our entire trip, and she was fantastic. At every site, she provided a brief history, as well as important events at the site, and any other culturally significant info.

Although I'm sure you could look up most of the info on the internet, or you could take along a guidebook, there's something to be said about having a Chinese person show you around their country. They grew up there, they speak the language, they know the history. AND, they can get you through the ticket counter unscathed!

Sense of Security

by SLLiew

There was a lot of security in Beijing during the Olympic Games.

With the many volunteers in uniforms at security check at each Olympic event, everyone was cooperating and a sense of security prevailed.

There was a conspicuous absence of military hardware, guns or uniformed soldiers.

Packing List

by Krystynn

DON'T forget to bring along your much-treasured ATM card to withdraw cash. Yes, no need to rush to the money-changers to change all your currencies into Chinese Renminbi (or Yuan, as the locals there call it) before your trip. Once you adhere to the following steps closely, you should be fine:

- Flip to the back of your local ATM card now, do you see the logos 'Cirrus', 'Plus', 'The Exchange', 'Maestro' etc on it?

- If the answer is 'yes', then you have absolutely nothing to worry about!

- Why? Because you can withdraw cash from any ATM machines in China, no matter how obscure the town or village you're at is.

- If you use this method, you'd also save alot on the interbank exchange rates. Money changers will charge you much, MUCH more compared to a bank.

- DO NOT withdraw cash from your Visa/ Mastercard. This is considered a CASH ADVANCE and you'd be slapped with a very hefty fee! Not worth it. :-(

I've used this method many, many times before and so far, no ATM machines in this world have failed me.... Yes, even at the remotest village in China! :-)

So, happy travels!

Bargains, bargains everywhere!

by niclcl about Yuexiu & Yaxiu Markets

As with most shopping done in Beijing, bargaining is a must. Prices are horribly inflated, so this would be a good place to practice your bargaining skills (if you're not already a pro). You can get clothes, bags, shoes, souvenirs, trinkets, electronics as well; but don't expect the real thing. Mens and ladies jackets should be in the range of RMB 60-80. RMB 90 is acceptable. Go elsewhere if they refuse to lower the price. Most of them will call out to you as you walk away; shouting the reduced prices. There's no need to huff when they tell you the inflated price, just smile, decline politely and walk away.

Bit of Latino Spirit

by zypher_girl about Havana

Havana: cuban style restaurant, haven't tried the food there yet, but the kool part is the live band and dance at weekend nites! in summer it goes from 11pm till 4am in the morning~ hot, hot and HOTTER!
the music is good, and always meet interesting ppl there from everywhere :D u can sit inside the restuarant or outside (in summer for sure, but watch out the mosquitos! and the kids who would 'force' u to buy flowers for any female sitting next to u!!), just chill out & have a break~ up to u really, it's not very strict. so, wear whatever u like, just casually smart ;)
