Music and coloured-light display at 8:30pm. It was crowded before it began. But we got bored after ten minutes of watching. Mainly because the water sprays were unidirectional and there was no story to tell. Just music and variation of timing and water strength.
Quite a number of amusement park facilities such as 5-D shows and Bumper Car Rides available around the Square for children to have fun. Plenty of Chinese restaurants for meals too.

Go there from 8-9pm. The show is spectacular and the lights do judtice to the square. They're building a metro station there, so it will be easier to access it in the future.

This area of town comes to life at night time; lights, fountains and great restaurants. Went here when it was snowing and the place was buzzing. Excellent for a meal and wander.

The Pagoda provides a good view from the top, after a climb up the stairs, even though the smog limits how far you can see. You have to pay for this but it's worth it.

Unique "squarish" pagoda. 5 Storey tall. Specially built for the Tang Monk to preserve the Buddhist scripts which he brought back from the journey west
