Beautiful structure

It is interesting to see the structure and to hear the short show, if you have the time. The views from the Bell Tower are nice, and it is beautiful at night.

Another amazing example ancient Chinese architecture and history. Lovely views of surrounds from top floor balcony. We were lucky enough to be there at a time when a concert was held on ground floor-so graceful and beautiful. No entry charge

Visiting this place is easy and it doesn't take long to see the tower. Nice views from the tower! Try to go there early in the morning or late in the afternoon.

Bell Tower. Lights up at night and during the day take a walk around and take pictures from the top. Check out the bell show in the morning. This is a must

This is Xian's showing of the Ming Dynasty. Visited both at day & night time. The lights looks like Christmas at night. Enjoyed seeing the area. There is no charge & also see skyline of city.

If you see the Bell Tower during the day, don't forget it is beautifully lit up at night. You can walk from the South Gate.

We reached in the city and started our visits from the bell tower. This was our meeting point. It was nice to start with city wall followed to the bell tower and the Muslim food street.

Whether you just gaze up while you visit the Muslim district, or want to venture inside, this tower is well worth your time. One reason why Xi'an is such a fascinating place to visit :)
