We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Xi'an Travel Guide

Xian Xi'an is the regional capital of Shaanxi, the largest city in north-west China. It had served as the nation's capital for more than 1000 years. The Terra-cotta Warriors and Horse of Xi'an is the greatest archaeological found of the last century.

There are more interesting attractions in Xian, like Xian City Wall, Forest of Stone Steles Museum, the Great Mosque, Muslim Markets, Big Goose Pagoda, Huaqing Hot Springs, Shaanxi Provincial History Museum, Famen Temple, Qianling Tomb, Mt. Huashan, Huangdi Mausoleum and more.

To see all the major attractions mentioned above will take you 2 - 4 days. If you only have one day in Xian for sightseeing, you are suggested to visit the Terra-cotta Warriors and Xian City Wall. Spending two days in Xian will be ideal for you - one day for the city tour of Shaanxi Provincial History Museum, Xian City Wall, the Bell Tower, Forest of Stone Steles Museum, Great Mosque and Muslim Market; the other day for the excursion to the Terra-cotta Warriors and Banpo Museum or Huaqing Hot Spring.

If you have one more day, you are advised to either drive 85 km west of Xian to explore Famen Temple and Qianling Tomb or 200 north to visit Huangdi Mausoleum. Or if you are interested in the mountain hiking, you may go 120 km east to hike Mt.Huashan.

If you have much more time for sightseeing in Xian, it's no problem for you to spend a week and even more time enjoying and exploring Xian and its neighbors. Xi'an is also the beginning point of the Silk Road leading west as well as a good starting place to travel Tibet.

There are also more than 10 daily high speed and overnight trains linking the two cities.

Get around in Xian
Getting around in the city of Xian is also very convenient. The city of Xian is laid out on a grid pattern with clear road signs. Most of the attractions within the wall are walkable or bike friendly.

The tourism buses connect those sights a little far from the city center. The taxi rates are much lower than those in Beijing and Shanghai. Two of the six planned subway lines are under construction. In a word, Xi'an transportation is independent traveler friendly.
