  • 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.
  • Free entry. Nice collection of Chinese arts and history.
  • Free museums with lots of awesome stuff.
  • Good education place for young people.

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.
