I enjoyed our evening walk to the Bell Tower which is just a 15 walk from the hotel we stayed. The whole place is lit up and rivals the glittter and glitziness of Las Vegas!

It's lit up at night, so an evening visit really give visitors a sense of the majesty of the Bell Tower. It's located in the center of a traffic circle, so we circumnavigated the tower on the outside of the circle for some great photos.

I wish we could have spent more time here. As it was, we drove by slowly on our night bus tour of Xi’an. The tower is so beautifully lit up at night, and I highly recommend that you visit (at night).

The history behind the bell tower was just as interesting as looking at it. You could probably get what the guide told use from a book, but I am sure the guide gave us more than the "textbook" version.

The tower is beautiful at night. If your in the area, exploring the Muslim quarter it’s worth visiting when dark.
