Who doesn't want to see the amazing, ground-breaking, one-upping Olympic Green that put China squarely in the public eye for the first time since its opening and reformation? The Olympics did not just symbolize sport in China, it was a coming out party, a way to introduce modern China to the world and it was a smashing success. So, even years after the event, the Olympic Green and Olympic Village remain some of the most visited sites in Beijing.
