“A Main Attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

I was very impressed with the beauty of this structure, having walked from my hotel in order to see it. It was worth the walk. It towers high over Xi'an.

“not much to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

The view of the roads surrounding it is nice but other than that there is not much to see. Get a combi ticket with the Drum Tower to save some money.

“Specially nice at night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

This place is a wonder at night, it's simply wonderful, a must see place in Xi'an. Go in the tower (35 Y) and appreciate the full view of the roundabout.

“Interesting but I don't know if you'd need to see another one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Luckily we went up the tower on a relatively quiet day. We saw the queues on the next day and they were massive! There was a good view over the city and attractively decorated.

“Landmark”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The Tower's enchanting wooden structure is the largest and best preserved of its kind in China.
The Bells in the Tower were rang in the morning to tell the time.
