“Two for the price of one”

The drum and bell Tower
Ranked #2 of 38 things to do in Xiangyang
Attraction details
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Travelling into Xi'an from our hotel the Crown Plaza was easy as there are only 2 subway lines! So very difficult to get lost and the stop you need is one stop before the two lines intersect travelling from beneath the south gate of this walled city. The entrance to the Bell tower is directly in front of you as you exit the subway into the under pass and for the Drum tower you need to turn right. At either attraction you can buy tickets for both for the price of 50 REM both are well worth a visit and as mid morning approaches and the smog begins to give way to a hint of Blue cloudy sky they both make excellent photographs. Must say though China really needs to catch up with the west on the fight against pollution and global warming as the number of buses is ridiculous but then at 1 REM for a bus (double if it's air conditioned) or 2 REM for the tube public transport is so cheap you can see why.

In the day they are just like other pagodas you see all around China. In the evening though they are lit up beautifully and worth going to see.
