Xian

The "Eternal City" of Xian is considered one of the birthplaces of ancient Chinese civilization and was the starting the point of the Silk Road. Among the myriad of historical and cultural treasures found in this city, the famed Terra Cotta Warriors remains Xian’s star attraction.

Xian

City Wall

The city wall surrounding Xian is one of the largest ancient military defensive systems in the world and the most complete surviving city wall in China. It has been listed by the Chinese government as a National Protected Cultural Relic.

Big Wild Goose Pagoda

Situated within the Da Ci en Temple in the southern suburb of Xian, the Big Wild Goose Pagoda is one of the most famous and well-preserved Buddhist pagodas in China. Originally built in 652AD during the Tang Dynasty, it holds ancient Buddhist artifacts that were taken to China from India. Today it is rated as a Key Cultural Relic Preserve as well as an AAAA Tourist Attraction.

Bell Tower and Drum Tower

The Bell Tower stands on the geographical center of the ancient city of Xian, and is the largest and best-preserved of its kind. The Drum Tower is located northwest of the Bell Tower, and both are considered sister buildings , dubbed the morning bell and dark drum . In ancient China, the drums were used to signal time and were occasionally used as an alarm in emergency situations.

Famen Temple

Situated 75 miles (120 km) west of Xian, the Famen Temple is renowned for the sheer amount and quality of rare, historical relics that were discovered during a renovation in 1981. The temple was originally built in the 3rd century AD and was home to a sacred underground crypt housing some of Sakyamani Buddha s finger bones. To this day, the underground palace that held the sacred treasures is the largest of its kind ever discovered.

Terra Cotta Warriors

Buried in the mausoleum of China s First Emperor, Qin Shi Huang, the Terracotta Warriors are one of the most significant archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. The standing army of life-size warriors was commissioned by Qin to enforce his rule over the afterlife. They remained buried underground until 1974 when farmers digging a well unearthed a terracotta head. Since then, the famed Terracotta Warriors have been attracting thousands of visitors worldwide who come to witness this spectacular piece of China s historic past.

Tang Dynasty Stage Show

The Tang Dynasty Show is a song and dance performance which reflects the rich cultural history during the golden age of the Tang Dynasty (618-907). Ancient stories and customs are brought to life at this world-class theater, where visitors can also enjoy a gourmet meal prepared by internationally-acclaimed chefs. Performed by the Tang Dynasty Song and Dance Troupe, the show is an exciting blend of splendid costumes, traditional folk music, and highly-skilled acting; a performance befitting of an emperor.
