One of the best sights for photography at early evening. Great starbucks across street. Very commercial area, lots of restaurants surrounding. Try the Xi'an burgers!

“Heart of Xi'An”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

The Bell Tower competes with the Drum Tower as the most important sight inside the city walls. The tower is a sight of architectural beauty which stands in the middle of a roundabout literally in the center of town. Visitors must use the underground tunnels to get to the tower. Souvenir vendors are located in the tunnels selling inexpensive trinkets to commemorate your visit. There several restaurants in the area as well as a Starbucks next to the Haagen Dazs.

“Xi'an Bell Tower”

I did not go inside this tower since it is in the middle of the street. I went in the drum tower instead. It is still something nice to see.

“Amazingly Beautiful At Night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

It is well past midnight when I walk from my hotel, The Days Inn, for some night time photography of Bell Tower.

With a light rain falling, seeing Bell Tower at night with its light reflecting of the wet road surface turns out to be a better experience than expected.
