Train Xian to Pingyao

by wcph

I would like to take train #2536, I think schedule is dep Xian 20:07 arr. Pingyao 6:35 in mid Sep. I like to buy a ticket in soft sleeper. This train originates from Baoji.

1) I read that this ticket can only be bought at originating city. Is this correct?

2) I only have a day in Xian before I leave for Pingyao but will be in Beijing prior to this. Can I buy this in Beijing and how far in advance can I buy it? I am afraid the sleeper class will be full.

Thank you in advance.

RE: Train Xian to Pingyao

I am fairly sure that you can only purchase the ticket from the originating city. So no, you can't buy the train ticket from Xi'an to Pingyao in Beijing. But the good thing is that soft sleepers are fairly easy to buy since they are more expensive. I would suggest buy the ticket as soon as you get off the train in Xi'an.

The Ancient Wall of Xian. At...

by l_joo

The Ancient Wall of Xian. At first we were tying to search for a less crowded place to relax but after a long walk we come to a place full of peoples, it was the city center. This place is very very crowded until we have to squeeze hard to get a bus but finally give up to take a small 3 wheel taxi, later we stop at this ancient wall taking this photo. Below is a website with complete Xian Informations and Attractions www.cnhomestay.com/city/xian/xian.htm

Glorious Hot Pot

by walterwu about along ChangLe XiLu

Along ChangLe XiLu, a row of shophouses offering hot pot. Tried the last one with a 46RMB set course for pork rib hot pot. Verdict: Delicious.

The kids finished off everything in it.

These restaurants is between Banpo Neolithic Village and the City.

Spotted it while going to Banpo Neolithic Village and took a bus back (paid fares to railway station but alighted at ChangLe XiLu). Pork Rib Hot Pot

The Killing Range

by muddybok

You may think this is an assembly area. The answer is definitely not right. This is supposed to be trap for any attackers, once the main gate is seal.

The archers will be shooting the arrows from the castle, and whosoever trap within will be eventually killed by archers.


Other City Wall Architectural Details (found in the web)
The wall was built of earth, rammed layer upon layer during the early time. The base layer was made of earth, quick lime, and glutinous rice extract, tempered together. This made the wall extremely strong and firm. Later, the wall was totally enclosed with bricks.

The Ming City wall encircles the city in a rectangle with one gate on each side. On the wall, fortifications such as watch towers, ramparts, (duo-kou) were built into a complex and well-organized system of defense.

There are total 98 ramparts on the wall and there are 120 meters distance from each other- towers that extruding out from the main wall. On the top of the rampart were 5984 2-metre- (7-foot-) high crenels called duo-kou. On the upper part of the duo-kou were large openings used to watch and shoot at attackers, and on the lower part were small openings, or loopholes, through which defenders could also shoot. The distance between ramparts is just within the range of arrow shot from either side, which allowed soldiers to protect the entire wall without exposing themselves to the enemy. Every several rampart on the wall has a sentry building of two or three stories where soldiers were stationed.

On the four corners of the wall were watchtowers. The one at the southwestern corner is round, probably after the imperial city wall of the Tang Dynasty, but the other three are square-shaped. On top of the watchtowers, the corner rampart, higher and larger than the ordinary ramparts, shows the strategic importance of corners of the city wall.

The great discovery

by muddybok

In 1974, a farmer digging a well in the northern Chinese city of Xi’an was disappointed in their search for water. They unearth something looks like a head and it had made the villagers uneasy because people at that time prefer things from heaven instead of from underworld.

The secret of world 8th Wonders were not disclosed until much later. The same man that unearth the Terracotta Army is still alive and he’s happily autograph the book entitled “The Awaken” in the museum.

The Xi'An museum

by shivan

The Xi'An museum is absolutely amazing.

It tells the story of the area since stone age to the japanese invasion in the thirties las century. I have not many pics of this museum, just this one of a large lion guarding the main hall. Go to visit it if you have time
