If you are planning your Xian tour during Chinese Lunar New Year, you are highly recommended to visit Tang Paradise Spring Festival Lantern Exhibit in Xian, the largest land and water lantern show in the northwest China.

Approx. 8 km southeast of Xian city center, Tang Paradise is the largest culture theme park in the Northwest China. Built and expanded on the former site of Tang Paradise in Tang Dynasty ( 618-907), now it is a model imperial garden to fully demonstrate the Tang Dynasty’s charm and grandeur. The setting, a landscaped 165-acre site surrounding a willow-lined lake, captures something of the look and feel of classical Chinese landscape painting.

Throughout the Tang Paradise there are twelve scenic regions including the attraction of Ziyun Tower Block, Elegant Lady Area, Imperial Banquet Hall, Fanglin Fragrant Garden, Phoenix Theater, Apricot Garden, Lu Yu Teahouse, Tang Marketplace and the Floating-drink at Qujiang Lake.

Tang Paradise Lantern Show is themed as “Monkey King: Hero is Back”,  making use of its own mountain and water landscape features based on Xian’s unique “Tang Dynasty Culture”. The lantern exhibit is a unique new year feast made ready for Xian locals and visitors as well. Compared to last year, this year’s lanterns doubles in number with new styles and patterns.

In addition to the lantern show, there are daily over one hundred performances put on during Spring Festival in  Tang Paradise, a one-stop base for you to experience Chinese traditional culture.
