Huaqing Palace, also known as the Huaqing Hot spring or Huaqing Pool, is located to the north of Mount Li in Lintong District, Xi'an, Shaanxi Province. It is 30 kilometers away from Xi'an city. With Mount Li on the south and the Weihe River to the north, Huaqing Palace, an ancient Chinese resort palace, is celebrated for its hot spring pools. Huaqing Palace combines in harmony culture and history with natural scenery. In the Tang Dynasty Style, its architecture appears to be spacious and serene and the gardens are a delight to behold. It is hoped that, in future, Huaqing Palace will become an important and symbolic scenic spot themed in the Tang Dynasty style. Before you visit the historic scenic spot, we recommend you to access the Facebook account by searching keywords of Huaqing Palace. In the platform you can find more interesting things.

Take public bus no. 5 from Xian railway station for RMB 8. Most cost efficient way. Take the public bus that is white in colour to avoid drivers who are very impatient, horns almost non stop on the roads. White bus no 5 is the state owned bus. There are many other 'fake' ones.

Chinese people who watch movies or TV series that cover the loves and life of this China couple will want to come here. Of course, this used to be an imperial hot spring get-away, too. The water is now only 43C

Went here after spending the morning at the terracotta warriors. It was so beautiful inside. A palace garden built in the Tang dynasty but first discovered by the Qin emperor for the hot springs. Plan to spend a few hours here walking around and for a special treat, soak your feet in the natural spring (50 b per person). Tickets... More

We found out about this palace on the way to the Terra-cotta Warriors museum. The guide on the bus talked very positively about it (in Chinese), saying it has a AAAAA rating, interesting history behind it, etc., so we decided to go. We were very disappointed. The buildings were not unique in any way, and most of the rooms just... More

You can find real relics in our imperial bath pool museum. You can watch the moive of romance love sotry between Emperor Lilongji with lady Yang in our... More

We came here after our tour of the Terra Cotta Warriors. Maybe we should have seen this site first, but after seeing the Terra Cotta Warriors, this place really pales in comparison. Part of it may also have been the interaction with our guide, who really didn't "gel" with us. The building appear nice but mostly seem like modern reconstructions.... More

The place here is very big, you can visit down or visit up but need pay for the transport. Here more on history visit. The 6D movie not good at all. need climb 1- 4th floor to see every scene and the chair does not move, no rain or water splash. I don't why it's call 6D......

I personally loved this place more than the terracotta warriors. I visited this place on 21 Feb 17, it happened to be snowing and the scenery was breathtaking. It's like I walked into a real life TV set. Over here is where Emperor Xuanzong of Tang Dynasty and Yang Yu Hian stayed. You must visit this place and read up... More

Huaqing Palace was the home of one of the Emperor's favourite concubines, who dedicated this beautiful site to her, just underneath the mountains. It's somewhat ironic that she was also killed here, by his hand. It is an incredibly beautiful place however, with ancient baths and courtyards, as well as the lovely scenic view of the mountains you can go... More
