We had dinner in a local restaurant and then was able to experience this area at night. A fountain new this area played music and had a water and light show. It was a nice respite for the evening after a day of sightseeing.

Huge watch tower looks like a huge pagoda. Most enchanting at night, completely iluminated, outstanding view. Situated at the edge of the moslem quarter and the old and crowded pedestrian street which worths itself a few hours stroll. Two minutes from the ancient muslim mosque.

It is necessary to visit this square in order to see both the Drum and Bell Towers but other than that it is just another public square.

Surrounded by a shopping area and some restaurants, this moderate-sized square is often where visitors start or end their tour of the city's Bell and Drum Towers and/or the Muslim quarter. It's not a bad place to slow down for a hot cup of brew...More

The lights, the food, the shopping and ambiance bring the whole area around the Drum Tower to life. Explore the streets and alleys in the area for trinket shopping and the Grand Mosque.

You cannot miss this building as it actually forms a roundabout in the very centre of Xian. It sits up really high so has great views overlooking the city. At night it is quite magical as it is lit up and looks magical. Unmissable.

Just a short distance from the Bell Tower which is the center of the city. Surrounded by modern commercialised shopping centers.
