questions regarding places in xian

by guo_mei_xin

1) Where is Wild Goose PAgoda? Is it the same as little goose pagoda or big goose pagoda or is this a different one?

2) the Tang Dynasty Show, is it in Tang Dynasty Arts museum? What is the show all about? How much is the entrance fee?

3) Where is the entrance of the city wall?

4) the history museumis the Shaanxi History Museum, right?


Is it worth going here:
1) Grand Buddha Temple
2) Banpo NEolithic Village
3) Temple of 8 immortals

Also, how much do you guys think is the perfect budget for Xian for may 3-4 days, excluding the train ticket? Is 2500RMB enough? I'm only staying in a backpacker's hostel so it'll be cheaper

1) There're only the Big and Small Goose Pagodas. No Wild Goose Pagoda.
3) Quite a few. What are you looking for?
4) Yes. Definitely worth visiting.
Yes, your budget is definitely enough.

I think they answered some of your questions. I'd like give you others information.
2.If you have time, you can stay in Tang Dynasty from 1:00PM to 9:00PM. There are various folk shows according to the timetable. At the end of the show, from 8:30 to 9:00, there is a water film. If your time is limited,you can stay there from 5:00PM to 9:00PM. There is a dancing show in Tang style, it's worth to see. The entrance fee is 50 yuan, and the dancing show is 100 yuan.
There are other places to see, I recommend Qian Tomb, and if you are interested in Buddish, you can put Famen Temple into your list.
Old city wall, big mosque, muslim corner, bell tower, drum tower, little goose pagoda.

I plan to go to Army of Terracotta and Huaqing.
1) Is it safe and convenient if I just go there by public bus without joining
the tour?
2) How long does it take to go to Army of Terracota?
3) The bus to Army of Terracotta Warriors, I heard that the round trip ticket
was 8RMB. If I purchase that round trip ticket, can I go to army of
terracotta first, then go to huaqing, then go back to xian using that round-
trip ticket?
4)Is spending half day in Terracotta and Huaqing enough? Or it should be the
whole day?
5) Is Little Goose Pagoda worth visiting?
6) I also plan to go to the city wall using the bike. How long will should I
spend biking around the city wall? Half day?

Sorry if I have so many questions, it'll be my first time to travel alone so I need all the help I can get.

1) Yes, totally ok visiting Terracotta Warriors and Huaqing Pool by public bus 306. Personally I would skip Huaqing Pool as it's overpriced and overrated.
2) About 70 mins on that bus (306) from Xi'an train station to Terracotta Warriors.
3) That has changed. It's now 7 RMB each way from Xi'an train station to Terracotta Warriors (and vice versa). No more round-trip ticket.
4) Terracotta Warriors will take about half day including travel time. As I said earlier, no need to go to Huaqing Pool.
6) At least 2 hours.

Re: questions regarding places in xian

Re: questions regarding places in xian

by ellyse

No, at least 50 RMB now.

Travel Tips for Xi'an

Birds

by solopes

Maybe because of the excess of population (maybe because they eat them…) dogs and cats are not very visible in China, where pets seem to be mainly fishes and birds. Birds deserve a special attention, with people taking them to the parks to “meet friends” and exchange melodies. Without surprise, selling birds is an important branch of local commerce.

Taxi is really the only way to...

by LAOWAI

Taxi is really the only way to go if you are lazy.
Buses are fine if you want to do it the 'local way.'
But by foot around town is really easy and enjoyable.
I suppose you could get a bike though- eveyone else seems to go that way.

Old part of Xian

by nepalgoods

In Xian I loved to watch the people in the narrow streets of the Muslim Quarters. The Muslim Quarters are the oldest still existing living quartes in Xian. They are not far from the Bell Tower in the city centre.

Here the men are playing some kind of Chinese Chess.

Drum Tower

by SallyM

The Drum Tower is very close, and similar in appearance to, the Bell Tower. You can buy a combined ticket to both.

The Drum Tower has (as its name suggests) a number of drums - the inside is a small museum of different kinds of drum.

Like the Bell Tower, it is also interesting for its architecture and views over the city.

Visit The Mausoleum of...

by margaretvn

Visit The Mausoleum of Qinshihuang and the Terracotta Army.
Qinshihuang (259-210BC) otherwise known as Ying Zheng was the founding emperor of the Qin Dynasty. His tomb is situated on the south bank of the Weihe River 5 kilometres east of the town of Lintong and a kilometre north of Mt. Lishan. The mausoleum was built in 247 BC when the emperor was enthroned aged 13. It is in fact a deep-dug magnificent underground palace, which is divided into two parts. These two parts are known as the inner and outer cities. The inner city is square and the outer one is rectangular. According to records more than 700,000 people were employed to construct the mausoleum and the work took 36 years. In 1974 and 1976 three massive army vaults were found . the first vault is the biggest and it contained 6,000 life-sized terracotta armoured warriors and horses. The warriors range from 1.78 to 1.87 metres in height and they are vivid warrior figures dressed in armour or short gowns tied at the waist, with leggings and tightly lashed boots and they hold real weapons – bows and arrows, swords, spears and crossbows. The figures vary from one another in complexion and hair style and they are powerful grand figures. The figures and horses are lined up in precise battle formation which shows in a way the military power of the Qin Dynasty.
