The Xi’an Cooling Center on Andong Street is open free to the public from 13:30 to 21:30 from June 20th to September 20th except rainy days, where residents can prevent sunstroke “underground”.

Originally built as a bomb shelter, the Xi’an Cooling Center now provides tables, chairs, TVs, dehumidifiers, public toilets, free hot water, chessboards and cards for residents.

The Center was opened on the afternoon of June 23th, and the reporter felt cool as soon as he entered the former bomb shelter. There were students who were doing homework, old people reading books, and young people following TV series. A man shivered as he walked, saying to his companion, “Yeah! We have to wear thermal long johns here!” The thermometer showed 16℃.
