Olympics Sport Centre @ Beijing, China

Beijing was the host of 2008 summer Olympics with the theme of "One World, One Dream". Sad to see that the National Stadium built for the Beijing Olympics is underutilized. The stadium itself is a beautiful structure and it looks exactly like a giant metal bird's nest. The pictures, alone is worth the trip down here but the vibrant touristy feel adds another layer of fun where visitors can purchase souvenirs while taking photos of the Nest, the Cube and a few other beautiful buildings built for the Olympics.
