"It's not just all about the warriors." Xi'an by kentishgirl

Xi'an Travel Guide: 1,112 reviews and 3,072 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 and Cons
  • 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
  • Last visit to Xi'an: May 2006
