Small Goose Pagoda, Xi'an

4.2
Although modest in size, Small Goose Pagoda stands proudly next to its taller neighbor, showing off its earthquake-induced scars. The tough brick pagoda has sustained a few cracks from the area's massive earthquakes. Nevertheless, you can still climb the sturdy structure--just be aware that the higher you go, the smaller the passage gets. From the top, feast your eyes on the gardens that surround it, and enjoy some peace and quiet. Take a walk in the park and ring the centuries-old bell, once used to call people to prayer.

    This pagoda has almost disappeared but it has been renovated and is in a park relaxing and full of symbols related to the pagoda. I preferred the large.

    By paying 30rmb entrance ticket you can climb all the way to the top (very easy). Then ... you get an eye's view of Xi'an. :-)

    Liked it better than the Large Wild Goose Pagoda. It's free to enter the park, extra to enter the pagoda. Cool puppet show.

    Less famous and much smaller crowd than its more famous big goose pagoda. However it's an equally interesting place to visit.

    Great park! Also at this location is the Xian museum. The small goose pagoda and Xian museum are free with ID; however it is 30rmb to go to the top of the pagoda

    Don't understand why people rate this place so low. Love it. First time in my life to see how steles were ink rubbed was in this temple. Rather serene comparing to Dayan pagota. Really exciting when I was on the top of this pagota.

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.
