China Things to Do: 765 reviews and 1,190 photos


The Bell Tower was relocated in 1739 and now stands in the centre of the city of Xian. Inside the tower is a nice small museum, as well as the bells that gives it its name. Access is via a pedestrian subway. About 200 metres west of the Bell Tower lies the Drum Tower. Inside here there is a small museum with various musical instruments on display. Together the two towers are known as the morning bell and the evening drum.

A combined ticket can be bought for the two towers.
