    Huaqing Pool

    15,996 Reviews
    27.1km from downtown
    "It's all pits. When I was there, I was entangled for several days. I still didn't enter. It was the place where Yang Guifei Li Longji mixed up. Going in is a few pits. But the place where the terracotta warriors and horses go to the car is like a transit station. In order to punch in, I went in. You have to consider it yourself."
    Highlights: The Huaqing Palace on the outskirts of Xi'an has been a hot spring bathing resort since ancient times and was also where the Xi'an Incident took place. During Emperor Xuanzong's reign in Tang Dynasty, it was a bathing place for the royal family and court ministers. Now, you can visit the royal pools of Tang Xuanzong and Yang Guifei, named Lotus Pool and Haitang Pool respectively. In 1936, the Xi'an Incident took place and changed China's destiny. In the southern part of the scenic spot, the “five halls” of Chiang Kai-shek’s old residential site were preserved intact, and the bullet marks of the fierce battle are still left on the walls.

    Tang Dynasty Furong Garden

    19,951 Reviews
    5.8km from downtown
    "Datang Furong Garden is very large in size, and I feel that there is no big scene imagined after I have been there. The architectural style does not have the historical precipitation of Beijing Summer Palace, nor is it entertaining in Hengdian. It's just that the sparse men and women wearing Hanfu are taking pictures, and the photo effect is much stronger than the real attractions. I chose to visit during the day and feel the ordinary attractions. The price is 120 yuan. It is far less than the free lively and literary performances of Datang Everbright City at night."
    Highlights: The Tang Dynasty Furong Garden located on the southeast side of Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, was built on the site of the original Furong Garden in the Tang Dynasty. With Furong Lake as the geographical center, Ziyun Tower, Luyu Tea House, Fengming Nineteenth Theatre and many other attractions surround the lake. This place showcases large-scale replicas of Tang-era buildings. Here, you can enjoy the magnificence of Tang buildings, appreciate the beautifully-lit scenery, and watch musicals in the style of the Tang Dynasty.
