This is the entrance to north street and the start of the city walls, this is very impressive just the scale of how these walls were built. Inside the entrance is Xiangyang museum or you can go to the many corners of these walls and walk the tops for free although the walls facing the river there is a small charge ¥5, if you are looking for something to take home there are many shops inside these walls around ¥20 for a gift.

The towers are breath taking at night when they are lit up. You could see them from almost anywhere in the central part of the town but I recommend a closer look which provides for better photos. The towers are close to the night market in Xian which is very busy but worth going if you love street food and want to sample the local way of life. I loved the towers and Xian overall.

We happened to go while a performance was taking place within the Drum Tower, which was really cool to see and hear. If you don't want to pay the price, return at night, as both are brilliantly lighted.

We visited the Ancient Wall in October 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I would recommend taking the mini tour bus (versus walking) as you get to see much more of the wall. The Buddhist temple inside the wall is quite a sight.

The drum and bell towers in Xi'an are a must see, particularly at night. Just at the entrance to the Muslim quarter with loads of street traders milling around. Very crowded and very busy, but very interesting and colourful.
