Xian Train Station

by Dean&Vanessa


We will be in Xian for 2 nights in April 05

What should we pay for a taxi from Train Station to Hotel (Maybe Bell Tower Hotel)?

Has anybody stayed at Bell Tower Hotel? Do you recommend?

Also is it true that you can not take photos of Terracotta Warriors?

Re: Xian Train Station

We stayed at the Bell Tower Hotel. I remember the trip (bus or taxi) to the train station was rather short, 10 minutes? So the fair should be rather cheap, no more than RMB 10-20 if not cheaper. You need to go back to the train station later when taking the big green bus to see terra cotta warriors (that's how I remember the train station).

The hotel is centrally located, a few tourist bus lines are nearby so that you can probably manage to use them to a few tourist sites: Big and small goose pagota, Shaanxi history museum (has one of the best selection in China). However returning to hotel from the sites could be challenging. Ask your hotel staff for a business card with your hotel name/phone number in Chinese so that you can show to your taxi driver (same applies to anywhere you go in China). The food was okay. It is a designated tourst hotel, so you will see many toursit groups at meal time.

Hotel has basic facility, you can ask for a room facing the tower (street). It is clean enough.

You can walk to the dumpling restaurant (just across the street) next to a few light blue colored glass pyrmamids (guess trying to mimic what I.M.Pei did in front of Louvre in Paris); big supermarket where you can buy fresh fruit and bottled water; Bell tower and Drum tower, and the Big Mosque and its neighborhood (HIGHLY recommended, especially you can check the mass time at the entrance and coordinate with your schedule; mass is not open to public, but you can see from outside of the prayer hall) . If you are a good walker, you can also walk to the city wall.

Here are some photos/info I have:

Have a great time.

Terra cotta warriors:
It is all for pretecting the 'warriors'.

You can take photos almost at all the pits if you do NOT use flash (no damage); otherwise w/ flash only at certain areas. However, many simple cameras would automatically fire the flash (i.e., user have no control overwriting the setting when light is low).

Welcome, aussies

3 kilometres from the train station to Bell tower hotel. 10 yuan might be enough.

You can take photos of the Warriors at only the certain hall or certain places.

Regulations may change by time. at the first time I visited there I could walk in the centre above the great pit on a high way but the next time it's not allowed to walk there.

Travel Tips for Xi'an

Chinese Jade

by albaaust about Not sure of name

This shop was right next to the Nanpo Village and you could easily miss it-it is a bit nondescript. However, it did seem to have a reasonable collection of carved Jade ornaments including the one in the photo.

Out the back were various cheap jade ornaments.

Pao !

by walterwu

Most restaurant in the Muslim Quarters of Xi'an (next to Drum Tower) sells either mutton pao. I didn't tried the famous mutton pao but a different version.

A basket of the mutton pao (that I tried) was only 5RMB.

Reasonable good.

The Terracota Army Warriors.

by omar_samra

An army of 2000 year old clay warriors standing guard to the imperial necropolis. There are close to 6000 warriors here divided into 3 viewing vaults. The biggest of these is almost 200m by length and 60m by width. You will find horsemen, swordsmen, archers, chariots and lots more. Some of the weapons are still on display. The impressive thing is that each one is different from the other, even the faces are carved to great detail and show different people. COOL!!.More Must See Activities

The Emperor's Tomb

by mikelisaanna

About 1/2 km from the Terra Cotta Army lies the actual tomb of Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi, the empeor who unified China. The tomb, which has not yet been excavated lies within an earthen pyramid, each side of which is about 500 meters long at the base. The height of the pyramid was originally about 100 meters, but is smaller now due to erosion. The pyramid now looks from a distance like a large hill covered with trees.

Inside the pyramid is reputed to be a lavish replica of the emperor's palace and a map of China, whose rivers are represented with streams of mercury. In addition to the emperor, his childless concubines and numerous workers are also said to be entombed in the pyramid.

The Muslim Quarter - Visit the Markets

by K.Knight

Vendor Street, in the Muslim Quarters, is really a small covered alley which leads you away from the main street. The market is approx 300 meters long offers you just about any fake, cheap and nasty souvenir that you can think of.

Fake Rolex watches, brand name handbags, polo shirts, pens, birds and fake antiques are all on offer her. Just remember to haggle for a good price as a starting price of 200 Yuan can often be purchased for 30 Yuan!
