Reviews on Tang Paradise
Visitor 1: “Nice place to visit”
This was a nice place to visit. To be honest, it wasn’t exactly what I thought it would be, I though it would be a replica of a Tang Palace, giving you a real historic feel like you’ve gone back in time, but it really wasn’t quite like this. Sure they have a big ‘palace’ but inside was basically an empty shell. No replica rooms or anything.
The gardens were very nice, they also had performances in several locations in the park which was… nice…
My favorite thing about this attraction was trying on the Tang Dynasty outfits!!! I love old Chinese outfits!
I tried on one just after the entrance, where there was a beautiful lake to pose in front of, and a Chinese ‘jiao/轿’ that you can sit in and take pictures. Very fun! you can take your own pics or get them to take one using their camera for extra price.
Also, I tried one further in the park and also sat on a camel!!!!!! and the view was amazing too.
Good place if you have kids, they have like.. like playground stuff, adults can find it fun too, and obviously can ride a camel too!
Overall, this was quite a nice place to visit! I wouldn’t say it was particularly cultural or historic and indeed probably would be boring to foreigners because I don’t remember there being any English info, and the shows were in Chinese too.
Visitor 2: “Commercial but locals like to congregate”
Big and open space surrounded by a lot of eating, and lodging. The center of the plaza,can look toward the Big Yan Tower, and Bell Tower in the other direction. Good place for people watching and watching people flying kites. Some kites are way high up in the sky and maybe a mile long of multiple kites.
Visitor 3: “A fantastic show!”
We were so pleased that we decided to see this optional dinner and show! Firstly, the food was bountiful and very good indeed – surprisingly at these sort of events! But it was the show itself that took our breath away – simply brilliant! It truly showed off the diversity of Chinese culture over the years and was visually stunning! A must do when you’re in this lovely city!
Visitor 4: “A bit pricey but very nice”
Allow a few hours to walk around this beautiful park, beautifully maintained gardens, sculptures, theatre (you have to pay extra if you want to get in), lovely place walking distance from the big wild goose pagoda, you can see it from the top floor of the pagoda.
Visitor 5: “Tang Paradise at eventing time after 7 pm”
If you plan to visit the Tang-Paradise after 7pm be prepared, that many shows and placed will be closed at this time. But there is a nice show at the main palace, which is with laser and light, thats the best thing in the evening.
Visitor 6: “Beautiful! A Must-Do in X’ian!”
In one word, the Tang Paradise was mesmerizing. When we went there, it was raining, but that didn’t take away from the beauty of the garden. I’ve been to quite a few gardens like the Yu Garden in Shanghai and Butchart in Canada but my favorite by far is the Tang Paradise. It is lovely and scenic, and very Xi’an….

It is about an hour to an hour and a half tour on foot with photo stops. But you may extend as you wish. As with any attraction in China, there are electric cars for RMB5 per person which you can take at the entrance. I prefer walking though to be able to explore the entire garden. On a rainy day, the walk is quite pleasant and relaxing. Try to go on a breezy day, as it might not quite be so enjoyable with the high of the summer heat. Also, avoid weekends and public holidays. The garden is best enjoyed with less people. Take lots and lots of photos! There is no garden like Tang Paradise.
