Weather: March is a cool month. The average daily high temperature in Xi'an is a cool 14 °C (57 °F), and the average daily low temperature is a cool 4 °C (39 °F). Flowers begin to bloom at the end of the month, and it gets warm enough to go to some outdoor attractions.
Clothing: A jacket or sweater is usually enough for the cool days, and for warm days, a T-shirt will feel comfortable.
See the cherry blossoms at Qianlong Temple: This is a favorite attraction of Japanese tourists in China. They come to see the cherry trees around the historic temple that played a key role in Japanese Buddhism.
Big Wild Goose Pagoda: This ancient pagoda is one of the main architectural attractions of Xi'an. Around it are some garden areas, and at night there is a sound and light show of the musical fountains.
The sounds, lights and motion of the fountains are artistically combined. Seeing these outdoor displays and watching the Tang Dynasty Show and having dinner are a good way to spend an evening in the area.
Yaozhou Ceramics Kiln Museum: If you are interested in Chinese porcelain, we'll arrange a side trip an hour north of Xi'an to the region's major ceramic center of dynasties past. There are displays of great artwork from various eras in the main museum and displays of the actual excavated kilns themselves.
March is a low travel month. Room rates and prices are normal, and the city is free of large crowds of tourists.
