Busy square with shops, restaurants, and a beautiful fountain. Fountain light show is delightful to watch, however the area becomes very, very crowded.

Wandering around the square there as so much happening. Square dancing, (in the square not CW) and hundreds of people taking part in different styles and exercises. Great place for morning people watching.

Our guide was so excited to share this with us and we really enjoyed our walk down the avenue. We were lucky it was a quiet night crowd wise so was not overbearing. Definately worth a visit if the weather is right

After visiting the Da Cien Temple and Big Wild Goose Pagoda walk over here, it's free. The fountains do a show but do not try to walk in between the fountains as you will be stopped by the guards.

Cool light and water show. worth the wait to watch it for a few minutes. we didn't stay longer than 5 minutes as it was too crowded and very warm. if u have kids, get there early and stand at the water.

These were the beautiful fountains with music. We went here while we were moving back to hotel. This place is beautiful and one can sit and enjoy the musical fountain.

It’s just a big square with lots of people even on a weekday afternoon. It’s ok to do some people watching and it’s on the way to the big pagoda if you are getting off from the subway. There is no fountain show at 12...More

If you are in Xi’an, go see this. There is nothing like it in the US. It was history and character. I would recommend going in the cooler months though, it gets quite hot.
