A must see at night. The lights are beautiful can be seen from just about anywhere. The strange thing is it's actually a traffic around about.

I enjoyed our evening walk to the Bell Tower which is just a 15 walk from the hotel we stayed. The whole place is lit up and rivals the glittter and glitziness of Las Vegas!

It's lit up at night, so an evening visit really give visitors a sense of the majesty of the Bell Tower. It's located in the center of a traffic circle, so we circumnavigated the tower on the outside of the circle for some great photos.

Similar to other ancient Chinese bell towers. Includes exhibit of vintage royal furniture, other artifacts. Excellent but short performance on ancient Chinese instruments given throughout day.
