With its Ming-era city walls, ancient pagodas and imperial tombs, Xian’s rich history and melting pot of cultures makes it a fascinating place to explore. Most famous as the home to the Terracotta Warriors that date back to the Qin Dynasty and as the easterly terminus of the ancient Silk Road, Xian is steeped in over 3,000 years of history and one of the birthplaces of Chinese civilisation

Often described as a living history book, there are few places on earth with a past as richly woven as Xian’s. Discover the secrets of the infamous Army of Terracotta Warriors, cycle the ancient city walls, pay homage at the sacred Big Wild Goose Pagoda and wander through the fascinating Muslim Quarter for a street food feast.
