It's right on the center of Hu county. It has 600 years history. In 1950s, it was the government office. In the past, the gates on the ground floor were open for transport. Flea market is around the tower now.

It is not worthwhile to pay for entrance fee, but u can take photo from the opposite road. The sightseeing at night will be more beautiful, as lighting will around the building! U can walk from the bell building from there, just 5-10 mins.

The bell tower is interesting for a shot from outside but inside having to pay for ringing the bell, getting a photo of the smog is not worth the entrance fee. There is nothing inside the building of interest either.

I think our visit might have been enhanced if we were there when they had a little show inside (playing Chinese bells and instruments). Before you buy your ticket, there is a sign at the ticket window with the times of the shows. During lunchtime,...More

The Bell Tower is situated on a roundabout at the intersection of four busy streets, surrounded by shopping centres and the like so we nearly gave it a miss. I'm glad we didn't so dive through the subway, pay your entrance fee and climb the...More
