Xi'an
Historians often describe Xi'an, capital city for over a dozen dynasties, as the birthplace of Chinese civilization.
Start off your visit on the 19th (Thu): explore the ancient world of Xi'an City Wall (Chengqiang) and then get engrossed in the history at The Museum of Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses.

Plan my trip to Xi'an with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Ahmedabad, India to Xi'an is an approximately 12.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or drive. The time zone difference moving from India Standard Time (IST) to China Standard Time (CST) is 2 hours. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Ahmedabad in March, with highs in Xi'an at 19°C and lows at 3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 19th (Thu) early enough to travel to Beijing.
