More than Terracota warriors...

A part of the old Xi'an is still preserved within its city walls. As interesting as the terracota warriors, worth of visits for sure... the old town is a living contrast of preserved monuments and history and a modern chinese city.

Xi'an is one of the oldest towns in China, capital of the old Chinese Empire.

Xi'an was already one of the biggest cities in the world at that time, compared to Rome and Constantinople.

The Drum Tower, nearby the Bell Tower completes the architecture of city centre in Xi'an, surronded by the preserved city walls.

You can see more pictures of Xi'an in our album at Webshots.

    Excellent page and photos? But still have to ask about terra cotta warriors--how far, and what is entrance fee?

    With the limited numbers of foreign restaurants in China, it is a surprise that a Brazilian one would be in inner China. Must be an interesting story behind it.

    I have never thought tea leaves are colorful. Are they not green(except for yellow chrysanthemum) or Are you colorblind ;)? You should try some tea, instead just looking at them :P
