It all began on 08.08.08 at precisely 08:08pm and was regarded as the greatest Olympics in modern history. Now, there is the opportunity to enjoy a visit to some of the incredible venues built specifically for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.
The Birds Nest was the centre piece of the Olymipc Games hosting amongst others the Opening and Closing ceremonies with a capacity of 91,000. The stadium has a unique look and takes centre stage amongst the key Olympic venues. With over 100,000 tomes of stell the stadium is the largest steel structure in the world.
Across from the stadium is the Water Cube used for swimming and diving events. By night the water cube changes colour and shape. With seating up to 17,000 the watercube was the site of 25 new world records during the Olympic Games.
