3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

There isn't a lot to see here it is situated on a roundabout which looks glorious with all the flowers more of a spectacle to view from afar

“Better at Night. Worth going to the top.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

I went t the Bell Tour late in the afternoon and paid to to to the top. It is a steep walk along a very small set of stairs with pedestrians going up and down. The views from the top are a photographers delight. The following evening, we drove passed and I wished that we had visited later in the day and got some photographs of the bell tower at night time. It really is spectacular with the way that it is lit up at nighttime.

“Beautiful at night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Get the double ticket for drum and bell towers. Time your visit to take in the performance. It is short but worth seeing. If you go from one tower straight to the other, the performances are staggered, so you can fit both in. At night the tower is lit up and looks stunning.

“Interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Walk under the underpass to get inside the bell tower. Lots of steps as usual in China! Viewing inside and out of the bell tower.
Buy a combined ticket for both the bell tower and drum tower and save money. Musical show at certain times of the day, get there early to get one of the few seats
