The architecture in the Bell Tower and Drum Tower is phenomenal, given the history and era these sites were constructed. Must see.

We enjoyed the area around trhe Tower and the architecture. It was amazing to see the many crowds and lots of tourists from other parts of China, just like when we visited the Terra Cotta soldiers...

We didn’t enter, seems like there is no place you can enter for free, but the building itself is beautiful. Well worth visiting at night when it is lit up.

The bell tower is located in the middle of what appears to be a major round about near the city wall. After seeing many such constructions, the view from the road is good enough

Visit to Xian would not be complete or perfect without being there at night, the historic ambience and views are not to be missed. You can also hire a bike from there. Plenty of photo ops. Easily accessible as v close to city centre.

Thank Calvinta
