November and December are part of the off season for travellers, so you’ll be able to get by cheaper – but be prepared for the temperatures which average around 0 degrees Celsius.

Xi An overview

Xi An has a worldwide reputation for being home to over 3,000 years of history. Its incredible heritage is reflected throughout this northwestern Chinese city that was once China’s capital throughout the reign of hundreds of years of dynasties. One of the primary reasons tourists flock to the city is to witness the incredible Terracotta army, unearthed in 1974 and containing 2,000 miniatures of warriors on display – though there are estimated to be around 8,000 in total. Another prime attraction is the City Wall of Xi An – the world’s largest city wall, built during the Ming dynasty who ruled China until 1644. Visitors can rent a bike to cycle the stretch of the wall and admire the city sights from above. Xi An is also home to some excellent local delicacies that you should sample, such as Shi Zi Bing – buns made from persimmons and stuffed with a sweet filling.

Getting around Xi An

The city is in the process of developing a metro network, but as of yet there is just one line that runs north to south, which is not fully completed and as such its use is limited. However, there is a developed network of buses. One of the routes is a tourist route that ferries passengers from the railway station to the main points of interest, such as the Bell Tower, the Xi An Museum and the Shaanxi Historic Museum, and the two main pagodas – Small Goose Pagoda and Big Goose Pagoda. Taxis are widely available, but you run the risk of being taken ‘for a ride’ and a journey that should only be a couple of miles might take you much longer than necessary, so be wary.

Getting from the Airport to the City

Xi An Xianyang International Airport (XIY) is found 25 miles (40 km) from the city centre, and you can take a taxi or bus. Taxis will be quite pricey to reach the city. Buses are a cheaper option departing every 30 minutes from early morning till the evening.
