Xi'an Travel Guide
西安Xi'an is considered one of China's must see destinations, the home to the Terracotta Warriors. People usually visit Xi'an for 1 or 2 nights and is a good part of a loop between Beijing and Shanghai or other destinations. You can get there by plane or the overnight train is also convenient from Beijing.
Xi'an is one of the few ancient Chinese cities with its old city wall still intact. You can walk on it or even ride a bike. The Muslim area is colorful and authentic, worth a walk around and also not a bad place to have dinner and do a bit of shopping.

NightlifeXi'an is famous for its Tang Dynasty show. This can be experienced with or without the accompanying Dumpling Dinner. The Muslim Quarter is also active in the evening and worth a stroll if you want to get out. This connects to a large square around the Drum and Bell towers which is also nice for walking, shopping and dining.
