  • We overran a few hours after visiting the wall (Badaling) and we decided to go to the Olympic Park. The complex is very big and beautiful, is better to go at night to see the illuminated buildings. Really there isn't much to do - besides walk and admire the set. Inside there are some places to eat (not many) and some souvenir shops. Although it is not a must-see, if you spare you time, it's worth going.

  • Really? Rave reviews? Umm .... I was underwhelmed. I. Probably most underwhelmed sight I saw in China. Well, that may be an exaggeration, but not by much. So many great places to go and see in China, skip this one. That's my advice.
  • Huge space, great buildings, definitely worth seeing
  • Such a beautiful place in beijing
  • Nice
  • Marvelous work by China
