“Nice city to spend a few days on your own...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

The city walls are amazing to see, with their museums and easy access. The city folk are polite and courteous. We felt very welcomed and safe in there. Will definitely visit again.

“An ancient island in a sea of modernity.....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

To climb the creaking wooden steps to the ancient Bell Tower of Xi'an is to surface amidst a whirlpool of traffic and bustling sights... In times gone by, ones view would have revealed the old world, but even now to standing on the narrow walkways of the tower under the swaying red lanterns is to be transported back to that time when all roads from Xi'an led westward to the fable led lands that bordered the Silk Road.. Truly one of the great crossroads that still beckons us!Ann Hamilton

“Good as bell towers go!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Ok so they are not the most exciting but they are very typically Chinese and this is very much part of Xi'an. A must see as you have full access and the view of Xi'an is good.
