I guess this is part of the old city wall, and the old street is just behind this tower, a vegetarian buffet restaurant is next to this tower.

The Drum Tower itself is neat but you only need a few minutes to see it. The surrounding area has some older style buildings but with renovated facades and such. You can also find most modern amenities like McD's, KFC, Starbucks... etc.

I have visited this street a few times and have come to the conclusion that it is ok, but nothing I would plan my day around. Mostly cheap little shops selling souvenirs n

Compared to the Gulo in Beijing, this one is horribly commercial. Very busy and noisy with tacky shop after tacky shop. Go if you happen to be in the area but otherwise do not go out of your way to find it.

You can walk along Zhongshan Road going West. It passes the square in a Northern direction. Go left from Tianyi square and walk about 2 1/2 blocks. Will see Drum tower/wall on the right. Can take subway line 1 for 1 stop... More
