Beijing National Stadium – where athleticism is staged

China is land of much diversity and color. From its local inhabitants to the magical landscapes found in many parts of the country, China can show you a world where culture is considered holy and tradition treasured and cherished. China is not all about isolated villages from the Ming Dynasty where even the greenery is close to being ornamental. But is a lively city that has embraced the best of western living and also has a place in this culturally prosperous country where earthly pleasures of all shapes and sizes are available to its guests. China is also dotted with a number of significant tourist attractions which lures in travellers from all around the world.

The Beijing National Stadium or the Birds Nest as it is fondly known around the world is one of the most eye-catching architectural masterpieces in the country. This multi purpose stadium was constructed to accommodate the needs of the 2008 Summer Olympics. The total construction cost came up to a jaw dropping US$423 million, and was officially opened on the 28th of June 2008. The architects of this remarkable project managed to achieve a seating capacity of 91,000 for the use of the 2008 Summer Olympics. This number was later reduced to 80000 and has proven to be sufficient for the many events that have been held here.

The Beijing National Stadium has been the preferred location to host many athletic events, high profile football matches and other significant sporting events since its construction. This massive stadium is a whopping 333 meters long and 294 meters wide which make it one of the largest sporting venues in the country.

Grand Millennium Beijing is conveniently located in the heart of the city and is considered as a hotel in Beijing which offers comfortable accommodation along with a host of useful facilities to its guests. This flagship Beijing hotel is ideal for both leisure and business travellers.
