    As observed by many contributors, the absence of crowd and leader can be seduced by this very valuable discovery. Many efforts of presentation, which could still be deepened for non-Chinese tourists. Worth the drive. Quick access by bus (the difficulty is to find the bus departure and departure times). Alternative: to be drop in taxi and return by bus!

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.
