Just in the middle of the city!

It is in the middle of the city and can be accessed by most of the public buses and train. Inside is not much impressive as the outside but it is only 17RMB to enter!

Fascinating site in the heart of Xi'an. Great views from the top, particularly towards the Drum Tower. Reasonably well-maintained.

The Bell Tower has a tea shop in the first floor which was really so nice. We had a time with one of their employees who talked to us about tea, how to make it properly and sip it. Very enjoyable time.

It's worth getting a double ticket for the bell tower and the drum tower. You can try ringing the huge bell, dress up for photos, just do it!

We had dinner near this lovely tower at night. Seems to be in the middle of a very busy area. By this time I was very lost in this big city, so I can't give you directions. Just as well our guide was with us.

this is a very ancient structure and very picturesque. The reason for it is more intriguing ...bell tower and drum tower were the original rise and rest timers for the city many years ago. one to wake the citizens and one to tell them the day was over/

In a very convenient location right in the middle of the main streets. I would say this is worthwhile to go by and take some nice photos at night. While the architecture is nice, there is nothing much you can do over at here. I would say you should not go specially for it as you will most likely pass... More

Pretty nice view from the tower... and good bird's eye view of market below. If you time it right, there are drum performances... at least on Saturdays.

We used this as our landmark. It was great during the day but it was spectacular to see at night all lit up. We were there just in time for the bell show too. I stayed at the Bell Tower Hostel (you could see the Bell Tower from the bedroom window!). A must see.
