Owner description: 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.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

I have stayed here twice now , and will definitely be back. The first trip was 2012 , and there was a lot of construction going on right outside our room , literally all night long making it very hard to sleep , but returned a year later and it was stunning ! The room we had included entry to the hot springs , and they were magnificent , everything from milk & rose water , lemon water , coffee water and even one full of the little fish that eat the dead skin (if your brave enough- I got my legs in but couldn't do the whole body) English is not very well spoken and luckily I had a chinese friend who was only a phone call away to help me out , but even though they spoke very little English , they really made an effort to communicate ! love love love this place !

“Springs Fit for the Kings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

The springs were once used by three kings and the famous concubine called "Yangguifei" in the dynasty of Tang. The used springs water would then flow into a pool where the chefs and servants of kings could "enjoy" the luxury of springs like their kings.

One interesting thing about Yangguifei is that she was the love of the king's life although she was overweight and had bromhidrosis. I suppose beauty is the eye of the beholder.

If you are in Xian, it is worth paying a visit to it.

“Beatiful setting with some historical ruins”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Some beautiful old-style Chinese buildings and remains of the emperors' baths. You can climb the mountain behind the hot springs too. You can also use the hot baths here, but I didn't.

It's quite expensive to visit, about 100 yuen for entry to the hot springs and another 100 for the mountain.
