Day by Day Itinerary
Day 1 -
Day 1 Xi'an Arrival (L)
After your arrival in Xi'an you will be met by your local guide and transferred to your hotel. Then, you will experience a half-hour's hike along the Ancient City Wall. Built in the Tang Dynasty (618 -907) and enlarged in the Ming dynasty (1368-1644), it is the largest and best preserved present city wall in ancient China and is probably the best military battlement in the world. If you want to, you can rent a bicycle for a ride on top of the spectacular city wall.
Then we will move on to visit the Shaanxi History Museum. It is a magnificent architectural complex in the Tang Dynasty style, and possesses a treasure of 113,000 historic and cultural artifacts unearthed in Shaanxi.
Day 2 Xi'an (L)
Today you will experience the highlights of Xi'an. After breakfast, you will visit the amazing 2000-year-old Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses. Regarded as the 8th Wonder of the World, the Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses are the most significant archeological excavations of the 20th century. Over 2,200 years ago, the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, ordered the construction of a vast army of Terra-cotta warriors in search of immortality. After his early death they were buried with him to protect his empire.
Another highlight today is the landmark of Xian Big Wild Goose Pagoda. Situated in the south of Xi'an city, it is one of the main constructions in the famous Buddhist temple - Da-Ci-En Temple. There, the well-known Buddhist Master Xuanzang (Monk Tripitaka) stored his collection of classic Buddhist artifacts brought from India in Tang Dynasty.
Then we will go on to visit the Bell Tower, which is the best-preserved and best-known one among many. The Bell Tower was built in 1384. In early mornings of ancient times it had the mission of ringing the bell and giving the correct time to the whole city. With magnificent carved beams and painted rafters, this classical building is truly elegant.
Day 3 Xi'an Departure (L)
In the morning visit Great Mosque. The Mosque is located at the Huajue Lane in the center of the city, is the largest and one of the most important Islamic mosques in China. It will be interesting to see symbols of Islamic belief in this ancient mosque. Then your guide will transfer you to the airport to take the flight to your next destination.
