    An average museum, compared to the Shaanxi Provincial musuem, lack of English description. Still interesting for an hour.  more »

    This museum offers you an in-depth historical view of the city. Recommended to visit before you tour around Xi'an. It's not a giant museum and it won't take more than 2 hours. Museum closed on Tuesdays.

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.
