Worth a peek
Dec 2020
There isn't much here honestly, but if you can put your mindset into that of being in the Ming Dynasty and you enjoy history you will have a good time. There is only Chinese for the text panels, so if you know Chinese there will be alot of more information for you to take in. Its best to buy the Bell Tower and Drum Tower combination tickets. They are close to each other and both worth visiting.

Easy site to visit.
Dec 2020 • Family
Small site, easy to get to, easy to see. A combines ticket for the Bell Tower and the Drum Tower is worth it. Foreigners without Chinese ID cards should buy tickets online through CTrip. Can also do that onsight by scanning a QR Code. Passport information is required, though documents themselves were not checked.

BREATHTAKING!! (and great dumplings around!)
Feb 2020 • Friends
At night the tower is beautifully lit! Love the open walk area around it along with the little store font shops and great dumpling restaurants! If your around go see it, but if not I do not recommend going completely out of your way. Hope that helps make a decision.

Grandest Ming-Dynasty Bell Tower
Nov 2020
Built in 1384 (although reconstructed and moved to its current location about 700 years ago), it is China's most admired bell tower. Visit the interior museum to grasp the history and see the amazing artifacts from the region, some being over 2,000 years old.

The Centre of Xi'an and Under Restoration
Jul 2020 • Friends
We visited in July 2020 and were hoping to see the landmark but it is under restoration. From what I have been reading they ring the bells at sunrise and there is a bell there that was made in 711! This is in the centre of the ancient city walls and a large traffic circle. You wouldn't have to go far out of your way to see it.

Closed for renovation
Jul 2020 • Couples
Was disappointed to find out that this attraction is closed for renovation from June to August 2020. Best to check for the exact reopening date before you visit.

Brightly lit at night near drum tower
Apr 2019
This tower was near the muslim quarter and also near the drum tower. Best time to visit at night when it was cooler, colourful and filled with people.

Beautiful at night and during the day
Oct 2019
Quite a site in terms of how it dominates this section of the city. This bell tower is a short walk from the drum tower. I walked to see them at night. We then went again during the next day.

Ride our biked to the bell tower
Jan 2020 • Family
We rode our bikes from the Sofitel Xian to the bell tower. It was very quiet on the streets as we were travelling during the coronovirus outbreak.
