Other than the photo ops, there was nothing to do here. I probably would not recommend it to others. The scheduled presentations and entertainment never happened with no explanation. Still... pretty views!

It's amazing to find this kind of tower in a middle of the road and in city center. This is one of Xi'an greatest attraction for me. Watch it at night when the lights illuminates the tower... Simply amazing!

You don't even have to pay the admission price to be able to appreciate such a beautiful sight. During the day, you can admire the variety of flowers surrounding it and, at night, the wonderfully lit up landmark itself.

This has a wonderful view from the bell tower. It is a must see! It was hot when we went, we brought water, but there is always somewhere to buy water wherever you go in China.

The Bell Tower is located inside the old wall and is very prominent, but without going inside it is difficult to photograph as it's up high and is difficult to get far enough back from. The view at night is great when it is illuminated.

Used this as a landmark to find our way to all the lock shops and restaurants. Didn't go inside as it was nighttime when we came past it. Good for a picture opportunity!
