The Bell Tower in Xi'an looks best when you watch it at night - it is beautifully illuminated and often surrounded by birds. Quite a charming picture! In my view it is not a must to visit the inside of the bell tower - there is not that much to see there, while the illuminated bell tower looks spectacular at... More

We saw some dancers, the drummers were excellent; decor is interesting, liked the wood carvings. Small museum pieces inside. Got to bang the gong. It is surrounded my a huge multi-lane roundabout; makes you wonder what the area looked like a thousand years ago.

This place is not worth to visit unless you have ample time. Good photos could be taken outside of the tower itself. There are performances at level2 at certain timings.Do check out if you are visiting the bell tower.

Lovely tower, particularly at night. Please do take time to rate my review, if you like it. Also, if interested please do check out my other restaurant and hotels reviews, you'll be surprised at how much an expat can learn about a city ;-)

The fun here really comes from the local life surrounding. Just steps away from Drum tower and Muslim street.

Very interesting place to visit by day or by night. One can walk around the walls even cycle. There are many locations to enter this place and the Bell tower is located near the Kaiyuan shopping mall. Lots of restaurants nearby as well. Worth a visit.

You will a ticket to enter and you can buy one that also include the Drum Tower. A landmark, about the middle of the Xian old City. There is a subway station beneath this attraction, bearing the same name. The entry is rather concealed and is filled with small shops. The underground is extensive and you can almost reach the...

Ancient Chinese cities have each a bell and a drum tower, to signal start-up and down-tools to the inhabitants. Xian's are very close together, extremely well-preserved, but only the bell tower's interior is accessible. Use the underpass to reach it.
