Commentators say, the CCP used the 2008 Beijing Olympics as vanity projects to glorify itself, but brought a nightmare to the Chinese people in reality.

Tourists only take photos outside the construction, giving up an expensive interior visit that charges 50 yuan per person....
Beijing National Stadium, colloquially as the Bird's Nest, is a stadium in Beijing, China. The stadium was designed for use throughout the 2008 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. Located in the Olympic Green, the $423 million stadium is the world's largest steel structure. The design was awarded to a submission from the Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron in April 2003, after a bidding process that included 13 final submissions. The design, which originated from the study of Chinese ceramics, implemented steel beams in order to hide supports for the retractable roof; giving the stadium the appearance of a "Bird's nest". Ai Weiwei, the artistic consultant, played a critical role in pushing the design to have unique Chinese characteristics. The retractable roof was later removed from th...

Here's another little video of China - this time I am in Beijing visiting the Olympic Stadium. This was pretty cool to see. I was there in 2012 when the London Olympics were on and already we've got Rio in a few weeks so I thought this was pretty relevant.
Bird's Nest (National Stadium) and Water Cube (National Aquatics Center) are the main stadiums of 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. Their unique appearances and various activities held inside have attracted a growing number of visitors since construction. http://www.travelchinaguide.com/attraction/beijing/national-stadium.htm http://www.travelchinaguide.com/attraction/beijing/water-cube.htm
The stadium was designed for use throughout the 2008 Summer Olympics and Paralympics. We later had dinner here with other internationally- renowned doctors with many libations, including some very strong (52 % by volume) Beijing Red Star Co., Ltd. Sake! It was a very interesting and surreal experience riding around the stadium knowing that it was the sight of the 2008 Summer Olympics!
