This map shows that Xi’an is located in central China, not far from Beijing, which is marked with a red five-point star. Xi’an is the capital city of Shaanxi province, near the Yellow River.
Hello Ambika, you can take Train T55 from Beijing West Railway Station to Yanglingzhen(Dep.16:42-Arr.07:21, duration:≈15hrs, price for soft sleeper: CNY424-442). There are no flight from Beijing to Yanglingzhen.
From Beijing to Xian, by plane, the price is CNY800-1050.
By train, you can take Train T43 from Beijing West Railway Station to Xi’an(Dep.20:29-Arr.09:00, duration:≈12.5hrs, price for soft sleeper: CNY424-442).
Hope it helps.Whitney Liao replied on 2012-07-13
