I thank you for all your prompt and quick replies to our needs and desires for the tour. You are very professional and provided what we had requested.

I enjoyed my tour of Xian - from start to finish. It was most comforting to have my tour guide meet me at the airport. Your tour guide - Ms Mary Ma is exceptional in both her English and her knowledge of her subject. She is to be congratulated.

I have no hesitation in recommending your company to other travellers. Thank you once again.

Kind regards
Janet Hawke

Xian Airport Transportation
Xi'an Airport Shuttle Bus
When you get out of the airport, go straight out the doors and you will see the transit buses in front of you. Its only costs you RMB 25 for the shuttle bus ride. It takes about one hour from the airport to the downtown Melody Hotel. So you will get off at the terminal just in front of the Melody Hotel in the city centre by the Bell Tower. The shuttle bus goes from 7:00am in the morning to 11:00pm, operating every half hour. Check Xian Airport Shuttle Bus for more information. 

Xian Airport Taxi
If you have much luggage and your hotel is not close to the downtown airport shuttle bus stop, you may take a taxi since it will save you more time for a comfortable transfer. But before you enjoy your ride, you have to bargain with the taxi driver for a reasonable fare, which costs about RMB 100-RMB 120. Check Xi'an Airport Taxi for more information. 

Xian Airport Private Transfer Service
If you don't want to use the airport taxi driver for the airport transfer, then you may pay a little more to have a comfortable private car or van transfer by pre-booking an airport transfer provided by a travel agency or limo travel service. You either can hire a car with or without an English speaking escort since most of the driver speaks little English. Check Xi'an Airport Transfer for more information.

Things to Do On a Layover
Army of Terra-Cotta Warriors ( How to Visit Terracotta Army )
The original site was found by a local farmer digging a well in 1974. Now it has turned into the most important attraction in Xian - Terracotta Warriors and Horse Museum. It is located about 30km east of the Xian City. The museum includes Pit 1, Pit 2 and Pit 3 as well the exhibition hall of the chariots and horses. The Pit 1 is the largest of the three. 

Xian City Wall
Now Xian City Wall is 12 meters tall, 12-14 meters wide overing 14 kilometers in length with a deep moat surrounding it. You can walk, even cycle on the wall. Its south gate is the most largest with a suspension bridge. Most of the tourists choose the south gate for sightseeing. 

Xian Muslim Quarters and the Great Mosque
The Xian Muslim Quarters is just located behind ( north of ) the Drum Tower. The Xian muslim quarters is a delightful place you will never miss! The famous Great Mosque is located in the Muslim Area. For the tourists coming here, the bazaar in the Muslim area is most attractive with a wide area of stalls selling everything. The streets and walkways are full of life. The shopping is great, very cheap and some unusual items we will seldom see anywhere else in China. 

Bell & Drum Towers
In Chinese history from Ming Dynasty, each city had a bell tower and a drum tower. The bell was sounded at dawn and the drum at dusk each day in ancient time, a means of telling time. Xian was not exception. The Bell Tower and Drum Tower of Xi'an date back to the Ming dynasty (1368-1644). The two are located in the center of the Xian city connecting the four roads from east, south, west and north within the city wall. 

Shaanxi Provincial History Musuem
If you love Chinese history, Shaanxi Provincial Museum is a must on your Xian trip. It is one of the four largest museums in China ( the other three are Forbidden City Museum, Shanghai Museum and Henan Provincial Museum.  It is a giant architectural complex in the Tang-dynasty style. It occupies an area of 70,000 square metres, and the construction area being more than 50,000 square metres. It focuses on the highlights of the Shaanxi culture and depicts the development of the Chinese civilization.

Big Goose Pagoda
Big Goose Pagoda is one of the oldest structures in China. Originally Big Goose Pagoda consisted of a brick structure of five storeys and was about 60 meters high. First built in 589A.D.in the Sui Dynasty. Between AD 701 and AD 704 during the reign of the Empress Wu Zetian five more storeys were added to the pagoda making ten in all. Unfortunately it was damaged during World War II and reduced to seven storeys, which is as it remains today. 

Hanyang Tombs (Mausoleum of Western Han Emperor Liu Qi)
It is the forth emperor - Jing Emperor's tomb in Han Dynasty (206 BC–AD 220) which was opened in 2001 and is famous for its rich collecion of the terra-cotta figurines and animals. Actually his tomb is not opened yet. What we see on the exhibition hall are artifacts from his main tomb's surrounding burial sites. Hanyang Tomb is about 20 Km away from Xian airport, 30km north of the downtown Xian. For many tourists, Hanyang Tombs are more like a hidden gem!
