The city streets are lovely at night with Bell Tower and Drum tower highlighted and streets lined with bright red lighted Chinese Knots. Worth a leisure stroll after dark.

It was nice to see traditional buildings around. The bell tower is high up and can be seen clearly from a distance.

Just interesting. It is a nice building to see and if you are in the athletic side you can climb the stairs. It is in an old part of Beijing quite interesting to visit too.

Xian is not very big, so when visiting the Bell Tower you are also surrounded by lots of other things to explore. This attraction is best to be seen at night, I would recommend going in the evening to experience the families and lively atmosphere.

Fun visit. You can learn a little about the history of the towers. At the top, you will get a good view of the city. We went just as the sun was going down. For some reason, they waived the admission cost. (Great!) We enjoyed...More

The Xi'an Bell Tower is very much worth a short evening stroll if you are staying in one of the nearby hotels. The lighting is very striking and the people watching is quite fun.

The Bell and Drum Tower combo of Xi'an are no doubts must sees. Both look very similar, and both have good views of the city and each other. The cost for both (in memory) wasn't much so it's probably worth going to them and taking...More

If your close by it is definitely worth checking out. We did not pay to actually go into the tower because the beauty is in the architecture and lighting on the outside. It is so beautiful at night and an excellent and iconic photo site.
