As one of China’s most popular travel destinations and one of the Chinese Four Great Ancient Capitals, Xi’an is famous for its millennium-long history and the 8th wonder of the word, the Terracotta Warriors.
Normally, we recommend our clients stay 2-3 nights, visit the city’s highlights (Terracotta Warriors, City Wall, Muslim Quarter, and Great Mosque) and Hanyangling Museum before taking a flight to other cities; in the evening, it is very recommendable to take a stroll in Great Tang Everbright City and the Big Wild Goose Pagoda square; and for adventurers, you can not miss the Mount Huashan, one of the most spectacular mountains in China.
For luxury travelers, there are many international brand hotels in Xi’an, basically in 3 areas, the old city (Sofitel Legend, Sofitel, InterContinental, Hilton, etc.), Qujiang Exhibition Area (W Hotel, The Westin, Gran Meliá, Hyatt Regency, Hualuxe, etc.) and the High-Tech Zone (The Ritz-Carlton, Shangri-La, Grand Hyatt, etc.).
Our suggestion: Hotels in the High-Tech Zone are not recommendable, it is a new area of offices, factories and almost nothing for tourism, more suitable for business travelers.
