        Top Descriptions

        Niaochao Beijing National Stadium, also known as the Bird’s Nest for its unique design, is regarded by many as a great accomplishment in modern architecture. It’s certainly bold and unique. For most, a trip here is a quick walk to see the stadium relatively close up, a photo, and back on the metro or bus but you could spend some time walking around this area and the park farther north if you were in no rush.

        Top Tips

        If you only want to view the famous stadium from the outside, then there is no need to factor in too much time for this site. The Olympic Park area has very little else on offer and sometimes limited amenities.
        The stadium is lit up at night, which is when some people prefer to visit.
        It is easy to reach the Olympic Park station by metro. Just take line 8.

                Top Descriptions

                This show gives the audience an opportunity to witness some of famous acrobatic talents. There is an assortment of skills on offer, from mesmorising plate spinning to adrenaline-inducing caged motorbike stunts – each act seemingly more impressive than the last! Though perhaps a little run down, the theatre itself is quite small and offers good views. Overall, definitely an entertaining show for most.

                Top Tips

                There are no animals used in this show, should you be concerned.
                If you have not been issued your tickets yet, arrive to the venue 30 minutes before the show starts for collection.
                If you would like to taxi rather than metro to the venue, it should be around CNY20 from the city centre.

                                Tiananmen Square is reported to be of one the biggest squares in the world, and even from the outside it can feel somewhat imposing with the iconic Mao portrait hanging from the red gate entrance.

                                        Though called Tongzi Hé, this body of water that circles the parameter is really a moat. Said to be once fed from holy sources, it is reportedly now filled from a reservoir. Though only a moat, this site benefits from the beautiful willow trees that line it in parts and is a popular spot for celebratory photos, such as weddings. That being said, the city walls that rise from the opposite side of the moat do make for a fortress-like scene and during an icy, winters day may well feel more imposing than expected.

                                              Top Descriptions

                                              This portion of the wall is said to be a favourite for photographers, and it is easy to see why once here. In the snowy month of January, the surrounding mountains are beautiful. The wall rises and falls with the landscape for as far as you can see and evokes a feeling of vastness that is perhaps equal to this country’s history and culture.

                                              Top Tips

                                              The path on this hike is not even, nor flat- the full stretch is considered by the unseasoned hiker as being quite tough.
                                              Come at a time of year when tourist numbers are low, and you may just have uninterrupted views.
                                              This hike did extend some kilometres farther, to Simatai proper; however, a portion of the wall is under renovation.
                                              There are hawkers along the wall selling basic souvenirs, and water and chocolate bars at inflated prices.
                                               
                                              If you have a tip about Jinshanling to Simatai Hike (The Great Wall of China) and would like to share that information with the community, contact [email protected] and we’ll post it right here in the directory.
