See Beijing's incredible modern architecture and the site of the 2008 Olympic Games, the National Aquatics Centre, better known as the "Water Cube". This breathtaking structure is just as representative of the Chinese capital as the Great Wall or the Forbidden City. The Water Cube is a bubble wrapped rectangular building located at the Olympic Park, built with the help of overseas Chinese; it has won several international design awards to date. It houses Beijing's largest indoor water park and is a fave with children. With an admission ticket, you can tour around the place and enjoy the water jets and pools, tunnels, neon plastic slides, all set alongside elaborate underwater styling. At night, you'll enjoy the illuminated building's various colours, providing excellent photo ops. A trip to the Water Cube is perfect for friends and family.
