ENGLISH SPEAKING GUIDE

by Larry_from_USA

My wife, child and I are going to be in Xian from Saturday, August 12, 2006 until Tuesday, August 15, 2006.

We would like to find someone who has an air conditioned vehicle and can help us during our stay with airport transfers, trip to view terracotta warriors and sightseeing in and around Xian.

We of course are willing to pay a reasonable amount for these services.

Well, the price for an air conditioned vehicle to visit terracotta warriors and tansfer from the airport and hotel and then to the airport is approximately RMB550 TO 600. You can find any travel agency in Xian to do it for you.

Hi Larry...

I think I may be able to help!

I have just come back fro Xi'an as a tour leader for a group coming from Beijing. We hired a local guide there who this group has used on many occasions before and he was excellent. A young man with perfect English, great humour and extremely knowledgeable. If you're interested, I can give you his details be email?

Travel Tips for Xi'an

Forest of Stone Tablets (Beilin)

by ahoerner

This museum preserves the ancient inscription tablets, which are part of the "heaviest" book collection, or ancient chinese library.

Most of the tables date from the Han dinasty.

Remarkable tablet is the one that tells the history of Nestorianism Diaqin, which is one of the first Christian sects to be known in China. It is noticed by the small cross on its top.

Chinese version of Starbucks

by lindyz about King Coffee

We came across King Coffee on our way back from the City Wall, it was near the foyer of Fortune Suites. I had been told to try their coffee, that it was similar to Starbucks, but cheaper. And that was indeed correct!

A cappuccino at King Coffee was about 20rmb and same drink at Starbucks was about 28rmb. Definitely try King Coffee - its worth it! They also sell cakes, cookies, iced teas, pies and sorbets.

The Terracotta Warriors

by Paul2001

A visit to the Terracotta Warriors is the primary reason most people come to Xian. They rank amongst the five top attractions.
The Terracotta Warriors were the brainchild of Emperor Qin Shi Huang, the Chinese ruler who is credited with uniting China in the 3rd century B.C. In producing an army of terra cotta warriors, Qin Shi Huang was preparing himself to rule the afterlife. They were part of a larger tomb complex that expands to the actual mausoleum for Qin Shi Huang, located several kilometers to the west. It is thought that 700,000 workers were recruited for the construction of the tomb.
The terracotta warriors are individualized in that no two have the same exact facial features. Each warrior was designed according to rank and there military task. They were initially all painted in coloured lacquer finish. The warriors were all armed with actual bronze weaponry but these were lost due to looting of the tomb.
Five years after Emperor Qin Shi Huang died and laid to rest in his mausoleum, the tomb which held the terracotta warriors was raided by the army of General Xiang. They looted the tomb and broke many of the warriors. Apparently a fire was set which lasted for three months. This destroyed the wooden structures that surrounded the warriors but miraculously did not do much damage to the warriors themselves. Seemingly the Terracotta Army was then forgotten for the next 2,200 years when they were discovered by four farmers digging a well. Excavations discovered 8,900 terracotta warriors so far. They have since been reconstructed and placed in a massive museum.

Great Mosque

by SallyM

Wander through the busy streets of the Muslim Quarter and you come to the Great Mosque - a tranquil and peaceful place in the heart of the city. Built for the city's Muslim Hui community, it is built in a typical Chinese style.

The Well

by muddybok

This is the exact spot where the peasants first dug up a human skull look alike in March 1974. Its not quite something the villagers expected, digging a head from underworld. The secret was keep for very long time until researchers guided with clues of possible site of lost "kingdom".
