Xian

A world renowned ancient capital with over 3,000 years of history, Xian boasts arich legacy of historical sites and cultural relics.

Xian’s city centre is dominated by its well preserved ancient city walls, the most complete city wall that has survived in China.

Don’t miss the opportunity to wander along the wall, cycle or enjoy a rickshaw ride. However undoubtedly, Xian’s drawcard is the impressive terracotta army with thousands of soldiers and horses of varying ranks – the famed life sized tomb guards of Emperor Qin Si Huang are truly remarkable.

Beyond the warriors, there are numerous and intriguing historical sites and cultural relics worthy of exploration.

Xian is also positioned at the beginning (or end) of the Silk Road giving it a lively Muslim Quarter – offering a sensory overload, it’s a great area worth exploring.

Xian is a must inclusion on any first-time trip to China.
