A city that can boast a truly illustrious past Xian is one of China’s most famous cities and has been for millennia. Close by the incredible Terracotta Army of Qin Shi Huang, the emperor who united China’s warring factions, stands sentinel, still guarding him well into the afterlife - with 2,000 years of being imperial capital for 11 dynasties, it is no surprise that new relics and ruins are being discovered around the city all the time.

In the city itself you’ll find magnificent Ming Dynasty city walls, ancient towers and the atmospheric Muslim Quarter. Xian was also the terminus of the legendary Silk Road - new religions, ideas and philosophies were traded here, bringing the influence of the western world into the middle kingdom. The glory days may have ended in the 10th century but Xian has so much to offer in terms of culture and history behind its modern façade.
