6-days winter solo backpacking in Mainland China
january 26 -  february 01, 2013 saturday to friday

I went to this site with the objective to have night shots on the sports arena. I believe this most picturesque at night. The place can be easily navigate through "green" subway, line 8.

The Olympic Green is an Olympic Park in Chaoyang District, Beijing, China constructed for the 2008 Summer Olympics. The Ling Long Pagoda or Linglong Tower (Multifunctional Studio Tower houses a part of the International Broadcast Center (IBC). It is located near the Olympic Cauldron, on the northwest side of the Bird's Nest Stadium. "Ling Long"  means delicate, and is referred to as the Delicate Tower in Chinese.

Beijing National Stadium or "Bird's Nest"  is the centerpiece of this project. It hosted the opening and closing ceremonies, athletics, and football finals of the Games. The stadium has room for 91,000 spectators, but the capacity was reduced to 80,000 after the Olympics. The Beijing National Aquatics Center or "Water Cube" hosted the swimming, diving and synchronized swimming events. It has a capacity of 17,000 (reduced to 6,000 after the Olympics) and is located next to the National Stadium.
