Xi’an is one of the oldest and most fascinating cities in China. When you visit here you will find many historical ruins, museums and cultural artifacts which make it an incredibly intriguing city. Some have even said, “if you have not been to Xi’an, you have not been to China!”. One of the many fascinating activities in Xi’an is a visit to the City Wall of Xi’an. A 12 metre high wall built hundreds of years ago to protect the city against attack. The wall is wide enough for you to either take a stroll or cycle either during the day or at night when the wall is lit up. Once atop the wall you can get the most spectacular view over the city and there is a museum inside the wall in case you wanted to learn more about the fascinating history of this city. Speaking of museums, one of the most important ones in Xi’an is the Shaanxi Historic Museum. Here you will find a comprehensive collection of local artifacts which will allow you to take a journey through the history of Xi’an, dating back to Neolithic times and through to the many dynasties the city has experienced. A little bit out of the city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in all of China, the Army of Terracotta Warriors and Horses. This terracotta army of 8,000 warriors, 100 or more chariots and 30,000 weapons is particularly fascinating and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
