Beijing 2012, Olympic Parkway

Our hotel was very close to the beginning of the Olympic Parkway which stretches 3km from the intersection of Beitucheng and Minzuyuan until the Olympic Forest Public Park.  The Parkway is pedestrian-only (for the most part) and has street vendors, public toilets, and easy access to the Olympic Venues such as the Bird’s Nest and the WaterCube.  It is a big tourist destination; we saw many tour buses, and tons of Chinese tourists posing in front of the Bird’s Nest.
