Beijing Day 1 - Reliving the Olympic spirit at the Olympic Green

Still having plenty of daylight left, we headed on to the Olympic Green – the venue of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. The vast complex is really grandeur. Spanning about 2,800 acres, the iconic structures which identify the place really stood out. Also, the wide open spaces can surely fit in thousands of patrons at any given time. A really nice place to explore!

The commute towards here is relatively easy. We just hopped on the subway, transferred a few lines, and a few minutes later got to the Olympic Sports Center station.
