Discover Xian’s Diverse Culture & History

Standard DreamTrip
Experience the many sides of Shaanxi Province’s capital city with 2 comprehensive tours to incredible sights — the terracotta warriors, ancient city wall, Yuanjia Village, Zhangyu Ruina Chateau winery & more. Book by October 19.

About Your Trip

On this DreamTrip, you’ll get a real glimpse into the historical impact of northwest China’s widely recognized arts and culture as you tour the ancient sites and scenery of Xian — and beyond! Your first tour begins at the museum holding one of the greatest archaeological finds of the 20th century — the terracotta warriors — discovered in a farmer’s field in 1974. You’ll visit 3 excavation pits with thousands of warriors, horses and chariots, where no 2 are alike. See the exhibition hall showcasing 2 of the best-preserved horse-and-chariot sculptures from the emperor’s tomb. After lunch, you’ll head to Jia Pingwa Cultural Museum of Art for a look at the folk art of Shehuo Mashao facial makeup that originated during the Zhou and Qin dynasties. Your last stop is the ancient city wall, a structure more than 630 years old and the only complete wall fortification left intact in China.

The next day, start at Han Yang Ling Mausoleum with the tomb of both the emperor Lui Qi and his empress and continue to Yuanjia Village at the foot of a mountain in Liquan County. Full of character and charm, the village is a great example of everyday life, displaying folk customs, crafts and skills. Afterward, you’ll travel to Zhangyu Ruina Chateau — home to the first wine cellar in Asia! — where you’ll have a choice of filling a bottle of wine by hand or customizing a bottle of red wine by pasting your own photo as a label. Later, it’s all about dumplings with dinner and a dumpling-cooking experience.

Also, you’ll enjoy free time to explore the area at your leisure. Check out the Muslim Quarter, home to the city’s large Muslim community and several historical buildings, such as Great Mosque of Xian. Delve into the Islamic culture by strolling around, perhaps sampling traditional food like yangrou paomo or roujiamo. For the ultimate in relaxation, you could head to Huaqing Hot Springs, which encompass multiple pools and geothermally heated springs at the base of Mt. Li. Or, why not consider a visit Tang Paradise? It’s an immense, record-setting theme park boasting multiple “culture areas” dedicated to the Tang dynasty’s colorful history and heritage. 

What we love:
• The terracotta warriors are life-sized clay statues excavated from the nearby UNESCO-protected tomb of China’s first emperor and were sculpted more than 2,000 years ago by the emperor to accompany him in his afterlife.
• The well-preserved ancient city wall in the center of Xian — the oldest of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China — is approximately 9 miles (14 kilometers) long.

Destination

Xian boasts a long and rich history as one of the oldest cities in China. Located in northwest China, in the center of the Guanzhong Plain, it is one of the country’s Four Great Ancient Capitals and the head of the legendary Silk Road. It was known as Sian to ancient Western explorers and traders who Romanized the city’s spelling. Xian has plenty of the characteristics of modern-day China, but its magic comes from a wealth of historic and cultural landmarks. Top destinations include the Drum Tower and the Bell Tower — centrally located, can’t-miss attractions that symbolize Xian — and the old fortifications known as the Xian City Wall. The area is also home to the famed mausoleum of China’s 1st emperor, Qin Shi Huang. Due to the plethora of ancient sites, the city is the most popular tourism destination in China, upon which the economy relies heavily.
