Fun to see
Apr 2021
At night this is lit up beautifully and is very visually appealing. Fun to walk around the outside and close to the Muslim street market.

Its OK
Dec 2020
I am not sure why its called Drum Tower Square when its closer to the Bell Tower, but it gives a good view of the Bell Tower. There is plenty or shops in the area. There isn't anything particularly historical or special about this square, but its a good gather place for people.

They had a very small Christmas set up there, where they had some characters and events happening when we were there.

Been here-it’s huge!

Watch for pickpockets and also hawkers trying to sell cheap terra-cotta ripoffs. Then again, watch the sellers selling the more expensive version saying that only there’s won’t fall apart and is better quality. Every man for himself here!.

Interesting Drum Tower
Jan 2020
Highly decorated and ornate drum tower. Periodically has live shows inside. Has an interesting display of furniture inside and a line of drums surrounding the exterior with descriptive signs in English detailing the various Chinese seasons of the year. Has a good view of the Muslim Quarter. Worth a visit.

We came here in the evening after visiting the muslim quarter for food as it was nearby. Lots of youths hanging around in the surrounding area. The drum tower looks beautiful at night.

This square off of a main street is surrounded by shops, restaurants and a park. The site is beautifully lit at night and is nice to observe during the day.

Beautiful
Dec 2019
The square is dominated by the Drum tower and this adds to its character. The square is beautiful with lots of shops , a park and various decorations. The musical fountain show with its different coloring lights was a pleasant surprise.

Part of a disappearing China

Thank goodness these sites have not been destroyed. So evocative of ancient China. The streets around are fascinating too with their Muslim streets food.

huge drum tower
Oct 2018
This drum tower is very large and also very well maintained. This is very decorative. It is nice to see and a good reference point to work to and from.

They played music in here while we were here so it is worth paying to go up and listening to this live chinese music
