Romantic Hotsprings
About 45 minutes outside Xi'an, at the foot of Mount Lishan, is the Huaqing Hotspring (or Huaqing Chi).

These grounds were the setting to the love story between Emperor Xuangzong and his concubine Yang Guifei, one of the four beauties of ancient China.

The hotsprings is located on the same grounds as the Huaqing Palace, and the Emperor dedicated plenty of resources into completing the grounds with gorgeous greenery, plunge pools, beautiful architecture, and the artificial Nine Dragon Lake, which, during the warmer season, is dotted with pretty floating lotus flowers that accompany the marble statue of Yang Guifei that stands nearby.
