Top Things to Do in Xi'an in April

April is the best month to see flowers in Xi'an, and the comfortable weather helps to make it one of the best months to travel to the city. Qianlong Temple and the gardens around the Big Wild Goose Pagoda are two nice places to go to see flowers in the city.

See the Cherry Blossoms at Qianlong Temple

Qianlong Temple 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. 

The temple is about 3 kilometers away from the Bell Tower and the Drum Tower and can be visited during a tour of these central attractions.

Visit Big Wild Goose Pagoda

This ancient pagoda is one of the main architectural attractions of Xi'an. There are garden areas such as the Xian Botanical Garden to enjoy, and there is a sound and light show of the musical fountains at night.

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.

Buy herbs at the Xi'an Herb Market

The herb market features delightful and healthful herbs sold at low prices compared to what you'd find back home. Herbs such as ginseng, goji berries, and hawthorn berries are Chinese products that can help make your trip more delightful, tasty, and healthful as well.

The herb market is on Wanshou Road on the way to Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi's mausoleum and the Terracotta Warriors.
