Huaqing Hot Springs Travel Guide

Brief Introduction
Huaqing Hot Springs are located 35 kilometers east of Xian city at the foot of the Lishan Mountain in a large park where there are a number of public baths and some modern palaces built in the Tang style.

The hot springs, rich in minerals, were highly regarded more than 3000 years ago. The Tang Emperor Xuanzong often spent the winter here in the company of his favorite concubine, Yang Guifei. Shortly afterwards, however, all the buildings were destroyed by war.

The entering gate bears the inscription Huaqing Chiยด by Guo Moruo, a noted litterateur in China. There are numerous classical style buildings at the site and many frescoes decorate the walls here. As the story of Yang Guifei, a concubine, is very popular with the Chinese, it is usually very busy.

The new baths constructed in 1956 include one called the Bath of Yang Guifei. Today, visitors can bathe in the 43 degree Celsius water.

There are still public bathhouses here, though you are better off exploring the forested areas of the park, or hiking up to the Taoist temple on Black Horses Mountaiin(Li Shan).

Features
Huaqing Hot Spring is famous for not only its dainty spring scenery, but also the romantic love story of Emperor Xuanzong and his concubine Yang Guifei.
