Huaqing Palace, also known as the Huaqing Hot spring or Huaqing Pool, is located to the north of Mount Li in Lintong District, Xi'an, Shaanxi Province. It is 30 kilometers away from Xi'an city. With Mount Li on the south and the Weihe River to the north, Huaqing Palace, an ancient Chinese resort palace, is celebrated for its hot spring pools. Huaqing Palace combines in harmony culture and history with natural scenery. In the Tang Dynasty Style, its architecture appears to be spacious and serene and the gardens are a delight to behold. It is hoped that, in future, Huaqing Palace will become an important and symbolic scenic spot themed in the Tang Dynasty style. Before you visit the historic scenic spot, we recommend you to access the Facebook account by searching keywords of Huaqing Palace. In the platform you can find more interesting things.

Don't be mistaken.. the pond in front of you is NOT the place Yang Guifei took her bath! You have to go inside each of the halls to see the real thing. Make a left turn after... read more

The place here is very big, you can visit down or visit up but need pay for the transport. Here more on history visit. The 6D movie not good at all. need climb 1- 4th floor to see every scene and the chair does not move, no rain or water splash. I don't why it's call 6D......

I personally loved this place more than the terracotta warriors. I visited this place on 21 Feb 17, it happened to be snowing and the scenery was breathtaking. It's like I walked into a real life TV set. Over here is where Emperor Xuanzong of Tang Dynasty and Yang Yu Hian stayed. You must visit this place and read up... More

Huaqing Palace was the home of one of the Emperor's favourite concubines, who dedicated this beautiful site to her, just underneath the mountains. It's somewhat ironic that she was also killed here, by his hand. It is an incredibly beautiful place however, with ancient baths and courtyards, as well as the lovely scenic view of the mountains you can go... More

It's a wonderful place not far away from Terracotta Warriors. You can go from here to there by taxi. Fabulous park with traditional Chinese architecture, hot spring waters and many beautiful views. Near there LiShan mountain is situated. To get on the top, you should buy tickets for park and elevator. It's better to go there in the late spring... More

This review is specifically about the dinner and show. I had the opportunity to go with my work and it was a great experience. First, the dinner is excellent. You get to try many traditional dishes in a fantastic environment. Depending on the size of your group you might get a private room as we did. We had several different... More

Huaqing Palace is on the way to the Terracotta Warriors from Xian, so most people can do those two together. But at the same entrance price at the Terracotta Warriors (at 150 RMB) including the surrounding Li Mountains, this rebuilt palace is pale compared to the awe-striking heritage at the Terracotta Warriors. Just like the Warriors, international student cards are... More

Today has been a very polluted day and it's very hard to see much of anything through the smog, so going up the mountain is a waste of time. The history of the area is fascinating but many of the exhibits are in Chinese only. The area is quite poorly signed so we wandered around aimlessly poking our head into... More

It costed 150 yuan for entry (it was an extra activity our tour guide offered so not sure if it costs 150 if you did it yourself). This palace was beautiful. It was where the emperor and concubines lived. There are bath houses and cute walk ways. It was snowing when we were there and the photos were beautiful. Very... More
