    Olympic Village - National - "Birds Nest" Stadium

    by Homanded Updated Jan 18, 2011

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Actually known as the National Stadium, the Bird's Nest stadium - so named because of it's design, is truly a sight to behold.
    Sadly, smog/pollution seem to gather at this location and often times, the stadium is hardly visible even from the road side; especially during summer.

    The entire Olympic Green village area has had great difficulty in attracting revenue or interest in events or foot traffic.
    A shopping mall and hotel were slated to be built there when we last visited in 2010.

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can visit where Michael Phelps won his historic 8 Olympic medals in swimming.
    Make sure and come early as the place gets packed!
    Also, due to smog, Pollution, early spring/late fall are better times of the year to visit.

    Grand Prix Museum - Macau

    by graeme83 Written Apr 22, 2009

    The Grand Prix Museum was opened in 1993 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Macau Grand Prix. If you are interested in motor racing or cars in general it is a nice place to learn about the history of the Macau Grand Prix. As well as information about the history of the event there are numerous cars on display, including the one in the photo of Aryton Senna's.

    Pool

    by graeme83 Written Apr 11, 2009

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pretty much every place I stayed and every bar I went in to had a pool table. I don't play pool too much at home - mainly because you have to pay to play in most British pubs. However, most of the places I went to had a free table. I'd often find myself playing against other travellers, bar staff and random people off the street. By the end of my month long trip I'm pretty sure I could have gone professional - if only i'd learnt how not to pot the white ball ;)

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Beijing National Aquatics Center (better known as Water Cube) is also located at Olympic Green in Beijing, just adjacent to the Bird's Nest National Stadium. It was used for swimming competitions during the 29th Beijing Olympiad. The Water Cube is not exactly a cube. It is more of a rectangular in shape, i.e. 178 metres square by 31 metres in height. The National Aquatics Center has a capacity for 17,000 spectators.

    The Water Cube was designed by a consortium of architects headed by PTW Architects, an Australian architect firm. It was constructed between 2004 and 2007 and officialy opened in 2008 before the Olympic Games. It occupies a total area of approximately 80,000 square metres.

    Water Cube Swimming Complex is a great tourist attraction in Beijing. More and more local and foreign tourists visit the swimming complex for its beautiful architecture!.

    Take the cable car

    by melosh Written May 19, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walking, hiking, climbing the stairs around famous Chinese mountain attractions if not actually a sports activity, is certainly a physical test. If you are one of those travelers who kind of feel that you have to actually climb it to say you experienced it, reconsider. Even though the cable cars and trams may be over priced by Chinese standards, you won't regret taking one. They often do offer a special prospective, but mostly they save your energy and time for all the rest of the visit. There will still be plenty of stairs to climb. If you wish to see the trail up, you can always walk down it.

    Equipment: Without question good shoes are important. Get them before you start your travel and break them in so you will not be plagued by blisters during your journey.

    If you find a walking stick useful, you can buy a cheap one for $1-2 USD at the site. When you are done using it, just find an older person to give it to.

    Skating

    by nepalgoods Written Jan 9, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well, I always thought, that the Dutch invented skating. But now I read, that the Chinese skated already during Tang Dynasty (618 - 907). At that time skating was a comprehensice ice sport: players could engage in ball games, archery and pole-climbing on ice aswell.

    Very surprising and very impressive!

    Archery Insanity

    by caslu Written Jun 21, 2004

    Just inside the Suzhou city gate was an amusement park style archery setup. It's not really a sport but it's as close as I came on this trip. Needless to say, the bows were in bad shape and there was not one straight arrow in sight. However, I did manage to hit the target at least once.

    Equipment: Rent your broken bows and bent arrows right here.

    When I last visited Beijing,
    banners all over promoting the 2000 Olympics which went to Sydney.

    Since then, China via Biejing will host the 2008 after 2004 in Athens.

    there will be much infrastructural development.

    Equipment: Table Tennis, was China's strength, then gymnastics, Swimming and diving, the future ......
    Badminton, volleyball, martial arts, more individual sports, but the team sports ? ? ?

    Confirmed - it will be Beijing
