Huaqing Palace, Xi'an

3.6
#1 of 32 in Parks in Xi'an
Lying at the foot of Mount Li, Huaqing Palace have been a significant bathing site for some 3,000 years. Although the complex dates back to a much earlier period, much of the site you see today was constructed by the Tang Dynasty in 723. Wind you way through a scattering of imperial bathing pools and palace quarters, surrounded by cedar trees and delicate lotus flowers floating on the spring's surface. At the exhibit hall, revel in daily performances of dances from the Tang period, coupled with a traditional tea ceremony.

    Nice visit. I suggest to get a guide otherwise the visit would be a lot less interesting. It also helps if you know a bit about Chinese history as this place transcends through the history. The ground is big enough that you can avoid large groups of people that you typically encounter in China.

    A popular place of interest for tourists and locals. Everything here is newly built like many of the tourist attractions in China. The highlight of this place must be the old bath houses of the emperors and empresses. it is dry now and I wonder where does the hot spring flows to? Highly recommended if you are a huge Tang history fan. However, the landscaping of the Palace good and it is very well maintained, so there is a lot of photo opportunities.

Where to stay in Xi'an

As in most Chinese cities, the least expensive places to stay in Xi'an concentrate around the main train station. To stay in a quieter and safer area, look for rooms in or near the city center, where you can choose between mid-range hotels and affordable youth hostels catering to backpackers and other travelers on a budget. Tourists with bargaining experience can usually get deeply discounted rooms through agents working the shuttle bus station at the airport. If you'd rather avoid dealing with touts, book your accommodations ahead.
