Took a walk the Drum Tower after lunch at the Taiwan Restaurant at the South gate. Not many shops are open during the day time. Also frerezing cold and not many people. Night should be more vibrant as there are many restaurants as well.

Locates at a ancient street, but all the shops at the street are closed, and most of the places look disorder.

the drum tower can be seen from afar. its impotent structure commands respect. it can be visited in 1 hour or less. you will find local food and bars next to it for a taste of the local cuisine. nothing fancy but clean and cheap.

Another good place if you want to buy Chinese souvenirs. Four roads surrounding the drum tower is full of small shops to buy traditional Chinese gifts for the friends back home.

When we were there at the Drum Tower previously, it wasn't open for visit. As such, we only walked around the tower to take pictures. Around the tower, it's like a flea market where many vendors laid their merchandise on the ground. We did not...More

I have been to the Drum Tower before but this day was disappointing. First, when I walked up you hear this horrible pop music. I would much prefer to hear Chinese cultural music. Then, as you walk past the vendor stalls, there wasn't much to...More

The Drum Tower itself is quite interesting and imposing, particularly if you can catch it during one of the festivals when it is likely to be attractively lit and surrounded by market stalls and food stalls. Even on a 'normal' day, the surrounding streets are...More
