Xian Travel Guide

Xian, the capital of Shaanxi Province, is nestled on the Guanzhong Plain in China’s northwest. It covers an area of 10,108 square kilometers and is home to 10 million people. It was originally called Chang’an with the meaning of long-term peace and stability. In the history, 13 dynasties established their capitals there, making it the head of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China. It also enjoys the title of “Natural History Museum” with many famous historical sites such as the Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, Ancient City Wall, and Banpo Ruins. Precious relics preserved in the museum, the mottled bricks of the ancient wall, and the ruins from the earliest time all witnessed its glorious history. Although the flourishing age of Zhou, Qin, Han and Tang went up in smoke, it will be indelibly engraved on people’s memory. Besides, Xian is the starting point of the ancient Silk Road and one of the three major tourist cities in China. For travelers looking for China tours or Silk Road cities tours, Xian is an unmissable destination which will treat tourists with brilliant history and culture, incredible natural scenery and tasty food. In addition to the rich tourism resources, Xian also has the advantage of convenient transportation with flights and trains to and from other major domestic tourist cities such as Beijing, Shanghai, Luoyang, Lanzhou, and Dunhuang as well as direct flights to and from international metropolises like London and Melbourne.
