“A good place to see authentic China”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The Drum Tower is similar to the Bell Tower, this is where drums were beaten to indicate the time after midday, the Bell Tower was where bells rang the time before midday. Friends who paid and climbed the tower said it was okay but nothing exciting. You can get the best photos just by walking around the square where you will find some great authentic street food.

“Strange and wonderful place!”

July 2011. So colorful, magical, filled with smells of the nearby market street, voices, bells, and yes, drums! A feast for the senses indeed!

“Nice tower”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

it locates in the center of Xi'an, just next to Bell Tower, but not so famous as bell tower for the fewer tourists. The views on top could cover most of West Street, which is an arttificial ancient china street. Seems that you can strike drums on top after pay a little! Try it if you have more free time in XIAN
