The hot springs themselves are very peaceful and are a lovely setting to end a hectic day of site seeing. Our Chinese hosts timed our visit perfectly. We saw the springs, peacefully bathed our tired feet, had dinner right there, and then attended the "The Song of Unending Sorrow." This dance and light show is one of the best I... More

A nice lake with spots of hotspring which we can try for a price. You can also climb up the nearby hill and see the panaromic view.

I went here with my English speaking guide and she was very knowledgeable about the history. It is pretty and you can take done beautiful photographs. I think it would be fabulous to come at night and see the dancing performance. It looks like it would be fantastic.

We didn't go for the show, rather we spent a couple of hours there on the way back from the Terracotta Warriors. The layout is interesting, and quite pretty. What I found most interesting was the history surrounding the "Xian Incident" and... More

This is on the way back from Teracotta warriors and worth a quick stop. The views are making of the mountainside and there are places to feel the hot springs.

Most of the site was rebuilt, but it is still beautiful. The love story was beautiful. We did not see the evening show.

The springs were once used by three kings and the famous concubine called "Yangguifei" in the dynasty of Tang. The used springs water would then flow into a pool where the chefs and servants of kings could "enjoy" the luxury of springs like their kings.
