The great history of Xian (Xi’an) spans more than three millennia. Because of this, most of the tourist attractions in the city are historic museums and archeological sites. The smaller but equally interesting part of your holiday in Xian is the nightlife scene and gastronomic delights that you can experience in the city.
Xian is the capital city of Shaanxi, China. It is considered not just as a typical metropolis but as a megalopolis or megacity in the country.
You can start your sightseeing tour by going around the famous City Wall of Xian, the largest city wall in the world. You can either take a guided tour or personally go around the wall by bike or by foot.
Don’t miss the chance to visit the Chinese pyramids just outside the city. These hill-like structures are ancient burial mounds and mausoleums where the remains of some of the greatest Chinese emperors are buried.
One of the most popular things to do in Xian, is to go and see the Terracotta Warriors, the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, and the Small Wild Goose Pagoda.
After seeing the most famous sites in Xian, end your day by tasting original Chinese cuisine and joining the pulsating nightlife scene of the city.
Summers in Xian are hot and humid while winters are cold and dry. Springs and autumns are dry as well. The rainiest months in the city are from July through October. Dust storms usually occur in March and April. Despite the dust storms in spring, this season along with autumn is the best time to visit Xian. Winter is also a good time to visit the city because there is little snow and the famous attractions are not crowded with tourists.
