Travel to Xi’an

Xi'an, known as Chang’an (meaning the eternal city) in ancient times, has a history of more than 3,000 years. For 1,100 years, the city was the capital for 13 dynasties, and a total of 73 emperors ruled here. Having served as the capital city for the ZHOU, QIN, HAN, SUI and TANG dynasties, Xi'an is one of the birthplaces of the ancient Chinese civilization. With such a rich history, Xi'an, as the eastern terminal of the famous Silk Road, has more than 4,000 historical sites, with over 120,000 pieces of unearthed cultural relics. The must-see historical sites of cultural heritage include the Museum of Terracotta Warriors and Horses, the Ancient City Walls of the Ming Dynasty, the Forest of Stone Steles Museum, the Ancient Huaqing Pool (the Huaqing Hot Springs). The Museum of Terracotta Warriors and Horses is praised as "the Eighth Wonder of the World". Today the city also has a pleasant cosmopolitan flair to it. Visitors can take a walk on the renovated ancient city walls and ring the ancient bells and drums at the Bell and Drum Towers; indulge yourself in the breathtaking Shaanxi Historic Museum for ancient Chinese mural paintings and other gorgeous relics; enjoy the delicious local food; and treat yourself with amazing Xi’an drum music or traditional drama.
