Snapshot Saturday: Brilliant Nest

Beijing's National Stadium

Also known as the Bird's Nest, is the world's largest steel structure. Strolled around this brilliant work of art and architectural genius, one fine winter morning.

Jealous! We didn't check out the interiors cause we didn't want to pay for the admission fee. Lol.

Anton, I got so many nice photos kasi. Sayang naman if I do not share them. And photos are enough to entice people to visit a place :) Magsnapshot project ka na rin!

First off, love the sleek look of your site. :)

As for the Bird's Nest, I dunno...there's something that doesn't do it for me. Maybe I have to see it to fully appreciate it. Mukha shang latticed apple pie. :)

It wasn't there yet when I visited Beijing, so I associate the city with more traditional architecture.

Thanks AJ. When I saw the nest on TV, it didn't seem beautiful to me either. The water cube looked more attractive. I was able to fully appreciate it when I saw it up close.

Sort of an art installation too. Interesting that they shaped it as bird's nest. :)

WOW! Looks awesome. Wasn't able to visit here during our China trip. I'm just wondering kung nakapunta din kaya diyan yung bee na nakita ko sa Summer Palace..? LOL! Lucky bee! :)
