  • Very Colorful. It's close to Muslim street famous for its food. At evening can find people playing instruments. 
  • Is another place worth to visit? There is very beautiful. The more at night. Turn on beautiful lights near the Muslim market. Can go.

  • 晚上鐘鼓樓廣場(鼓樓)這里人潮總是不斷,雖然附近有鐘樓和回民街,但夜晚這里都是最熱閙的,其實白天這里最為人知的應是鼓樓,但其實去過我個人覺得還好,主要的應該是看鼓的這個部份,夜晚的鼓樓反而比鼓還好看,但如果有興趣的朋友我覺得可以思考一下是否白天去那參觀,如果不特別感到興趣,其實晚上看看也是不錯. 西安的景點如果不是免費的話,一般的門票均價都不算便宜,不然買張年票再來參觀可能會是比較經濟的一種方式.
