Do you remember learning about the Chinese clay army that was discovered by farmers? You know, the one where all the figures have different faces and hairstyles. They’re called the Terracotta Warriors, and they’re right here in Xian! If you’d like to get to know them (and see lots of other cool stuff), browse Wotif’s splendid offers on Xian accommodation and see what else can be discovered in this central Chinese city.
Flights to Xian will land at Xi’an Xianyang International Airport (XIY), 31km from the central business district. You can get to the front door of your hotel simply by hailing a taxicab or you can reserve a seat on the Airport Bus, which stops all over the city. The best way to get around town and see the sites is to utilise the city’s bus system. Don’t worry, they’re air conditioned.
Maybe you hopped a redeye flight and are landing at the break of dawn. Before you spend the afternoon sightseeing, replenish your energy with breakfast at a tea house.
By the time your meal is over, the sun will be high in the sky, which means there’s plenty of time to check out the Terracotta Army at the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor. If you’re on one of the Xian flights touching down at night, go see a Qinqiang Opera show. You’ll probably have no idea what’s going on, but the performance is spectacular.
Locals know best, which is why you should follow them to the Muslim Quarter and order up whatever they do. Something like crumbled unleavened bread in mutton stew should do just fine. Or maybe a plate of fried rice with pickled Chinese cabbage will suit your taste. Whatever it is you’re looking for, this place probably has it.
Doesn’t hanging out in a city that’s over 3000 years old sound like fun? Of course it does. Check out our cheap flights to Xian and save big bucks when you book your ticket today.
And hey, would you like to spend a few days in the country’s largest city? Browse Wotif’s deals on Shanghai holiday packages and take the two-hour flight so you can climb to the top of the Oriental Pearl Tower. The view from there is insane!
