“Amazing view at night!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

If you go up, do it at night to enjoy the city lights.
Purchase the ticket for both the bell and drum tower to see the city from both towers. Both are located walking distance, so it is worth paying to see both.

One of the best sights for photography at early evening. Great starbucks across street. Very commercial area, lots of restaurants surrounding. Try the Xi'an burgers!

“Heart of Xi'An”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

The Bell Tower competes with the Drum Tower as the most important sight inside the city walls. The tower is a sight of architectural beauty which stands in the middle of a roundabout literally in the center of town. Visitors must use the underground tunnels to get to the tower. Souvenir vendors are located in the tunnels selling inexpensive trinkets to commemorate your visit. There several restaurants in the area as well as a Starbucks next to the Haagen Dazs.

“Xi'an Bell Tower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I did not go inside this tower since it is in the middle of the street. I went in the drum tower instead. It is still something nice to see.
