  • 2008 Olympics (venues)

    Beijing Sports & Outdoors

    The 2008 Summer Olympics was one of the most spectacular ever. I was in Beiing in 2007 while the Olympics complex was still under construction and our tour bus just swung by on our way to the Great Wall. In September 2008, I visited the Olympic Complex but the Paralympics was on-going so the area was crowded and a bit restricted. We took the Subway...

    You can see people playing ping pong everywhere in Beijing and throughout China. Don't be afraid to initiate a friendly challenge but also don't be surprised when an eleven year old Chinese girl kicks your foreign butt if you decide to start keeping score. In nearly all China's major cities you can find ping pong clubs where people pay by the hour...

  • Pool

    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...

  • Take the cable car

    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,...

  • Skating

    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

    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. Rent your broken bows and bent arrows right here.
