Amidst all of Beijing’s famed historic landmarks one will come across a fascinatingly designed cube like structure that stands out amidst the cityscape. The Beijing National Aquatics Centre which is fondly and rather aptly referred to as the Water Cube is an iconic modern attraction that came into the world spotlight during the 2008 Olympics. While visiting this site is well worth doing, make sure you find well placed serviced apartments in Beijing which to base yourself at before you begin your excursions. Ascott Raffles City Beijing is amongst the leading serviced apartments Beijing has to offer and is conveniently located within easy reach of local transport options that let you explore the city.

Plan a trip to the Olympic Green where the distinctive Water Cube can be found. Used to host swimming events in the 2008 Summer Olympics, this venue saw 25 world records being broken. The exterior with its bubble designs is truly a sight to behold, while today the inside of the Water Cube is used for a whole different kind of purpose; hosting a water park! One of Asia’s biggest water parks, this popular site now features water based rides and slides, a wave pool and a lazy river offering countless thrills and spills in the water.
