It is so much cooler at night then the high 90's of a July day. Buy a combo ticket for about $5 US and see both the Drum and Bell towers. Pretty crowed but it is a nice experience. The wall around the city is...More

The Drum Tower and the Bell Tower are large pagodas which are particularly spectacular at night. You can also visit the interiors which are sort of small museums. The Drum Tower has a drumming exhibitiion I think once a day (maybe twice). I don't think you'd need a guide, and they are quite close to each other. Also not a long walk from the city wall which is worth seeing. They are in the center of the old walled city area and are adjacent to the lively Muslim quarter. Definitely worth going to!
