Xian

The enthralling city of Xian houses some of China’s most significant historical artefacts and showcases the country’s fascinating past. The highlight to any trip to Xian is a chance to see the Terracotta Warriors, 2000 immaculately carved statues that have collectively been called the eighth wonder of the world. You can also follow in the footsteps of the Emperors of the Ming Dynasty as you explore the Wild Goose Pagoda and admire the ancient ramparts of the walled city which dates back over 3,000 years. With luxury hotels and shopping to boot, Xian offers a mixture of history and modernity to form an unmissable port of call on any China itinerary.
