In the morning, you will be picked up from hotel and taken to see the notable Terracotta Army. They have guarded the tomb of the first emperor for nearly two millennium, and do not fail to impress even a seasoned traveler.
On return to the city we will visit the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, which has been a Buddhist pilgrimage site for centuries. It is also the symbol of Xi'an. If you like, climbing up the narrow and steep stairs will unfold before your eyes the panoramic view of the city.
The Ancient City Wall separates the city into inner and outer parts, and still stands firm after witnessing thousands of years' history. Riding a bicycle allows you to stretch your legs on a very comfortable ride along a fortification as wide as a road. A rickshaw ride is also an option, if cycling is not your style.
Not far is Muslim Quarters, a bustling area full of restaurants, stands and shops, good for food and souvenir hunting. The Great Mosque nestles deep in the lane and offers a moment of tranquility. It is a unique blend of Chinese design and Islamic faith.
