Fun place to visit late in the evening! It is so beautifully lit up! Don't need a guide for this, but if you need a great guide, I highly recommend Bryan Bai. His website is xianhistorytourguide.com

It’s not the best thing to do in Xi’An but if you’re in town you might as well visit. Thankfully it wasn’t very crowded this visit and the weather was slightly warm but okay. You get wonderful views of the city center as in fact...More

Great looking tower not sure it’s a must do to enter the tower it’s just ok for me. Definitely see it at night time looks stunning with the lights. I did see it during day and night and it’s worth seeing it both ways.

Entrance is in the underpass opposite the metro entrance/ exit. Go inside- the ceiling is beautiful with some interesting exhibits too. It is also beautifully lit up at night time. Joint ticket is worthwhile.

We were in the local area and walked around this site. Quite hectic with plenty of people and activity. Very interesting design and architecture. Plenty of other sites nearby to explore, so heaps to see in this area. A good place to “people watch”.

Certainly the centre of town. Its the Arc de Triomphe of Xian with all roads leading to it. While historically important, internally it lacks much character other than the roofing. Best seen at night.
