Traveled her with China Odyssey Tours. A nice pagoda that is a must do if you are in the area. Not overly important to see if is out of your way and you have visited other Pagodas. To be fair, we were getting 'Pagoda'ed out' by day 10 of our 2 week China trip, so we can compare it to others that we have seen. It would be one of the best lit Pagodas in China at night time. Day time though is worth a casual walk through, but don't bother if there are long ques. A display inside talks about the end of the Silk Road and shows a map. The Drum and Bell tours are also well described with signs. Entry into the Pagoda building itself is not allowed.

We got here by underground an interesting experience. Overall a pleasant park and some points of interest but not worth busting a gut if you are on a tight schedule.

it is nice. Be careful with the vendors..gees...they really want to sell you something...they are almost aggressive...an old lady (about 101 years old) was after me...a lot of poverty here...

While the area around the pagoda might not be that special the view from the top (quite a walk up if its hot!) is one of the best in Xi'an on a clear day and well worth it.
