Great music and fountains

I enjoyed a show at 9 pm. Although it was busy, it was very enjoyable to be out here in the evening, soaking up the atmosphere.

Visited at night to watch the musical fountain displays. good views of the illuminated pagoda whilst watching the fountains. The nearby shopping plaza has a wonderful ceiling with moving pictures.

The light, water and music show was well worth the effort to get to the park to see. 1) For the best view, make your way about 2000 hrs to the Southern end of the northern square, you know you are at the right spot when you have the Pagoda behind you and you are about 3m higher than the... More

The square itself was lovely - but the fountain show choreographed to music was magical. The surrounding area was crowded with tourists and families all watching the fountain display - was beautiful.

The Square at night with the light show is brilliant. A 'must see' on even a short visit to the City. We visited in the rain and still had a great experience.

This is very well lit and maintained area in XiAn. The tower is amazing and great history that goes along with it. There is several squares around this all featuring great things to do. There is great parks with laser water shows, people social dancing, shops, bars, restaurants and statues of key past historical figures with details of their contribution... More
