Close to the Olympic Stadium you can also go to the Beijing State Forest Park. It’s a beautiful park that seems to go on forever, and is just a quick walk away from the stadium and many other attractions.
With its paths winding up, down and around the forested area it makes it a real treat for someone who is missing a little bit of wildlife home here in the concrete jungle of Beijing.
There are many people throughout the park, playing badmitton, kicking around a Chinese hacky sack, eating icecream, walking, talking or just relaxing next to the water.
It’s a great day trip and I hope to be back again soon…
