This is my hometown. I live here, I love it here. I feel like I have a responsibility to let you know more about it.
There is an old saying "If you want to see China of 100 years ago, visit Shanghai; China of 500 years ago, Beijing; China of 2000 years ago, Xi'an."
In ancient times, it was called Chang'an. The meaning is prosperity forever. From the first emperor of China who unified all of China, Qin Shi Huang, many emperors established their capital here, totalling 1000 years.
So many things shouldn't be missed, such as the Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses, the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, the Small Wild Goose Pagoda, the Forest of Stone Tablets, the Huaqing Hot Spring, the Fa Men Temple, the Qian Tomb, Shaanxi History Museum, Tang Paradise and so on.
If you like natural scenery, you could go to Hua Mountain, Taibai Mountain or Qinlin Mountains.
Dumplings are the most favorite traditional food of the Chinese people. In dumpling feast, you will be pleasantly surprised by those various delicate dumplings.
Also, cool noodles, Chinese hamburgers, Saozi noodles, kabob, steamed soup stuffed buns, breaking bread in mutton or beef soup....... All in all, I believe that nobody can eat all of special local food in one week. Hehe, I tried but failed.
I'm working on this page and I'll be adding more tips.
Thanks to Museeuw, his kind words motivated me. To be continued......
