Built by the Great Ghengis Khan, Beihai Park is a beautiful and peaceful
place to stroll, grab a snack, rent a boat and watch calligraphers painting
characters on the paving slabs.
The main venue for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, the Beijing Olympic Green
includes eye-catching monuments such as the National Stadium (popularly
referred to as the "Bird's Nest") and the National Aquatics Centre
(known as the "Watercube").
Other sites in the Olympic Green include the
Olympic Village, the Olympics Tennis Courts, the National Indoor Stadium and
the China National Convention Centre (CNCC). The park is also home to
picturesque lakes and a lush forest park which is ideal for an evening stroll.
