"It's not just all about the warriors." Xi'an by kentishgirl
Xi'an Travel Guide: 1,091 reviews and 2,978 photos
Like most people we arrived in Xi'an expecting nothing much to do, but see the Terracotta Warriors. Quite rightly, they will be one of the highlights of your trip in China, but Xi'an has so much more to offer.
I loved walking around the city : both the old and the new sections. There's lots of good street vendor food on offer, modern malls to chill in, the market to haggle in and architecture to gaze in awe of.
Xi'an is a busy city - like any other in China, but I liked it far more than Beijing, Chengdu and Kunming.
- Pros:So much to see and do.
- Cons:The warriors are outside of Xi'an - trips must be booked
- In a nutshell:plenty for everyone
Well, we had a private room at this hostel and it was really spacious, clean and comfortable. We were located upstairs... more travel advice
One of very few walled cities left in China today, Xi'an is a blend of old and new. Our hostel was located just inside... more travel advice
