Travel guide to Xian

As one of the oldest cities in China, Xi’an is one of the so-called Four Great Ancient Capitals (the others being Beijing, Nanjing and Luoyang).

Located in central western China, Xi’an was the capital city for some of China’s most important dynasties, including the Chin, Han, and Tang. For much of its history was part of the Silk Road to Europe. For much of its history, it was known as Changan.

Most tourists visit to see the 'Terra Cotta Warriors' and they are well worth the trip. Estimates are that 10,600 reside in the three pits that have been discovered, however, only about 600 have been restored. In fact, only one intact soldier has ever been found (a kneeling archer).

Xian also has complete city walls (dating back 500 years) as well as a variety of excellent museums and temples. The centre of town near the Drum Tower also houses the Muslim Quarter, another must see. [edit text]  [editors]
