Huaqing Palace, also known as the Huaqing Hot spring or Huaqing Pool, is located to the north of Mount Li in Lintong District, Xi'an, Shaanxi Province. It is 30 kilometers away from Xi'an city. With Mount Li on the south and the Weihe River to the north, Huaqing Palace, an ancient Chinese resort palace, is celebrated for its hot spring pools. Huaqing Palace combines in harmony culture and history with natural scenery. In the Tang Dynasty Style, its architecture appears to be spacious and serene and the gardens are a delight to behold. It is hoped that, in future, Huaqing Palace will become an important and symbolic scenic spot themed in the Tang Dynasty style. Before you visit the historic scenic spot, we recommend you to access the Facebook account by searching keywords of Huaqing Palace. In the platform you can find more interesting things.

Don't be mistaken.. the pond in front of you is NOT the place Yang Guifei took her bath! You have to go inside each of the halls to see the real thing. Make a left turn after... read more

This review is specifically about the dinner and show. I had the opportunity to go with my work and it was a great experience. First, the dinner is excellent. You get to try many traditional dishes in a fantastic environment. Depending on the size of your group you might get a private room as we did. We had several different... More

Huaqing Palace is on the way to the Terracotta Warriors from Xian, so most people can do those two together. But at the same entrance price at the Terracotta Warriors (at 150 RMB) including the surrounding Li Mountains, this rebuilt palace is pale compared to the awe-striking heritage at the Terracotta Warriors. Just like the Warriors, international student cards are... More

Today has been a very polluted day and it's very hard to see much of anything through the smog, so going up the mountain is a waste of time. The history of the area is fascinating but many of the exhibits are in Chinese only. The area is quite poorly signed so we wandered around aimlessly poking our head into... More

It costed 150 yuan for entry (it was an extra activity our tour guide offered so not sure if it costs 150 if you did it yourself). This palace was beautiful. It was where the emperor and concubines lived. There are bath houses and cute walk ways. It was snowing when we were there and the photos were beautiful. Very... More

Very scenic area with nice rebuilt temples and lakes. Relaxing atmosphere. Take a walk into the mountains to see more temples and have a nice view of the city.

If you are not a history fanatic and have seen temples and Chinese tradicional buildings, don't waste your money here. It is quite expensive and inside it is just buildings with stores inside and fake lakes. You can also go up the mountain, either by stairs or cable car. On the top of the mountain there is a temple that... More
