Best Xi'an Tours
For more than 1100 years, covering 13 dynasties of Chinese history, Xi'an had been China's capital. In 1974, the accidental discovery of the incredible 2000 year old Terracotta Army drew the entire world's attention to this ancient city, and has made it a must-see for travelers to China.
As an old capital, Xi'an has much to offer. As the original starting point of the Silk Road trade route, it is the perfect beginning for our modern Silk Road Tour. Xi'an's Ancient City Wall and accompanying moat, built during the Ming Dynasty (1368AD-1644AD), remains intact, encircling the city. The vibrant Muslim Quarter is packed with vendors, crafts and local snacks; making a wonderful bazaar. You will be able to pick up miniatures of terracotta figures and animals in the burial pits around the Hanyang Tombs. These figures represent the prosperity of the grand Han Dynasty. Xi'an is well connected to other popular destinations in China both by excellent high speed train network as well as air ways. By high speed train, Kungfu Capital Luoyang is only 1.5 hours ride, Chengdu Giant Pandas is just 3.5 hours away, and the World Heritage Site Pingyao Ancient Town is 3 hours away. Generally, Xi'an tour needs 2 full days and can be extended to many different cities for more activities and sightseeing based on your wishes.
