  • Headed by city bus from Xian. You should still be hung on at the bus stop, on the slow bus Terra Cotta Warriors until more than an hour took, was realized with non-stop flights in about 40 minutes. If you go with the kiyoshiike may 使i分kemashou with non-stop flights only if slow buses, Terra Cotta Warriors. Terra Cotta Warriors themselves. I have power. Just saw Hall gymnasium and quite hot in the wonders of the Hall sign in stranger, I missed the building 3, and Emperor ling. I am sorry I went. Souvenir city maintained cleanly leaving the Museum. So it was a rather expensive ate biáng biáng side compared to the factory city.

  • We had already read the tip to first Hall 3, then 2 and then 1. The latter is the most spectacular settings. But when you arrive you have no idea what well what Hall is. Tip: begin at the far right. Was there when we were there an exhibit of world heritage photos. Nice, but not for you of course. The Hall to its left is Hall 2. Very big, but there is still little excavated. This does provide a good picture of what was found at the time and what a huge chore it is to this to get rid of all the sand layers. Scattered body parts of clay, heads. And in between burrowing archaeologists. Interesting to see. Then you walk back automatically to free Hall 3 which is relatively small. Then at the back Hall 1 within walking. Clearly the most impressive of the 3. When you slow down the side runs forward, you get quite a good impression, if you then to the front above on the platform is, you see the vast army in full glory. Beautiful and big. As in most places penetrate between the thousands of Chinese, but da is up a little. Finally, there is clean toilets and a fine restaurant.

Where to stay in Xi'an

As in most Chinese cities, the least expensive places to stay in Xi'an concentrate around the main train station. To stay in a quieter and safer area, look for rooms in or near the city center, where you can choose between mid-range hotels and affordable youth hostels catering to backpackers and other travelers on a budget. Tourists with bargaining experience can usually get deeply discounted rooms through agents working the shuttle bus station at the airport. If you'd rather avoid dealing with touts, book your accommodations ahead.
