suggestions for good laundry service

by DAVEinTX

Doesn't anyone get their laundry done in Xian or do we just throw it away when they get dirty? I think not.

RE: suggestions for good laundry service

Thats something I noticed a couple of years back. Your best bet is to get your hotel/hostel to do it, or ask a local shop owner, as they may be able to tell you cheaper places to go rather than your hotel.

Our experience in China of hotels doing laundry was that it was quick, efficient, very cheap and totally reliable.

Agree with Hawkhead. And if you aren't staying at a hotel, some hotels will even do your laundary for you, with a suitable tip for the head housekeeper.
No need for a private e-mail thanking me for my tip this time, Dave.

Travel Tips for Xi'an

A Personal privilege

by solopes

The room is large and beautiful. People sit around tables, in a mix of theatre and restaurant that announces noise and movements during the show.
Imagine that, reading the list, you state: Port wine. It can be serious!
Being Portuguese, of course I tried to laugh about the thing, investigating what the hell they call “Port wine”. Can you imagine?
Well, it was… Port wine. Portuguese. True and honest!
A good company for a noisy and agitated show, I thought.
WRONG!
Eating drinking and talking was BEFORE the show. When it started, the silence was respectful, and we could enjoy each detail, including the nice set of musician ladies in a box, the colours, the dances, the music, the Port…

TANG DINASTY SHOW. Great!

Baozi - bread dumplings

by Yso about Dong Dajie

In the north of china the most common dish is Jiaozi, which are known as dumplings and are in fact more like big ravioli, with loads of different fillings available.

In Xi'an you can also buy Baozi, which are similar but instead of being boiled or steamed in a thin pastry cover they are made more like stuffed bread rolls - and then steamed.

I'm not doing them much justice from my description, but they are delicious and in Xi'an you can get many different types, from pork and cabbage and chicken to highly spicy vegetable and even chocolate Baozi.

Baozi are sold from stalls along Dong Dajie and cost 1Yuen each. As you only need about 4 or 5 to feel totally stuffed then this is a very cheap meal.

Along Dong Dajie you can also buy grilled or fried "kebabs" (meat or seafood on a wooden stick), and just hang out aorund in front of the stalls to eat them. This way you can easily go back for more. I love the chilli vegetable Baozi, my boyfriend was more keen on the pork and cabbage!

Cycling on the ancient city wall

by Museeuw

This is a way to cycle in China without the constant risk of being run over by a truck or a car, but there’s not a lot to see actually. So no nice views, but good for a relaxing hour of cycling.

Price: 20 yuan per bicycle for 100 minutes (you can do the whole wall in about an hour), but to get on the wall you already have to pay 40 yuan per person.

We got on the wall through the Southern Gate.

The Terracotta Warriors - Vault 3.

by K.Knight

Much smaller than the other vaults, vault 3 is approx 500 square meters.

The entrance opens into a “horse stable” where the majority of the warriors, horses, chariots and weapons found were extensively damaged. The viewing platform and lighting are excellent and the must air is a hangover of the room that leaked during a downpour a year or two ago.

The Warriors in this pit seem to be guards etc. as they are not in formation. The “guards” seem to be facing each other and are standing outside rooms that go off to the side of the vault.

Anne and I really enjoyed our time at the Terracotta Warriors museum and we are certainly glad that we took the time to spend a couple of days in Xian.

Terracotta Army

by jasmine_ding

I didn't want to write a tip about Terracotta Army, cz so many people have built tips about it. So what is the purpose of this tip? Because I want to make my tips and page of Xi'an a guide book of Xi'an. And I have seen the Army many times.

The terracotta Army Museum is about 30 kms east of Xi'an. There are three ways to get to the museum, one-day tour, taxi and travel bus.

The terracotta soldiers were created to protect the Chinese first emperor's soul. The emperor, Qinshihuang, had 700 thousands workers build his tomb for 38 years. The marvelous and mysterious Terracotta Army is only a part of the emperor's burials.

I enjoy looking at these soldiers' different costums and faces, maybe they'll revive one day. But my favorite exhibition displaied in the Terracotta Army Museum is the Bronze Carriage. It's difficult to tell how the ancient craftsman produced so delicate and advanced arts. The carriage shows people at that time the jointing and manufacturing technology reached an unbelievable level.

There are so many stories about the Terracotta Army, so many legends about the first emperor of China. Having visited the Terracotta Army, each tourist will have his/her own opinion and imagination.

Price:90 RMB
Attention(Go by yourself instead of one-day tour):
1. Be sure to get on No.306 travel bus on the railway station square to the museum. Please don't get on any minibus.
2.Take some food for your lunch instead of having lunch in a restaurant near the museum, except that you are sure about the price and the menu.
3. Please don't go to so called " Qinshihuang Underground Palace". It's an artificial spot.
