Train Beijing - Pingyao - Xi'an

by Alex83

Hi,

I was just wanting to confirm that there is a train we can take from Beijing To Pingyao (spend the night in Pingyao), then get a train from Pingyao to Xi'an.
Is this possible?

Thanks.

Hi,
Yes I understand it is possible and plan to do it myslef next month.
Beijing to Pingyao N203 and then Train 2535 from Pingyao to Xian.

Booking seems to be a bit of art for these ones .. let me know how you go .. when are you planning to go ?

Hey,

Just in the planing stages. Most likely in Feb next year, even though I'd rather go some time sooner!

Thanks for the information.

Alex.

RE: Train Beijing - Pingyao - Xi'an

by Brian&Sally

A word from the wise about your trip. We were going to do the exact same itinerary but nobody could (or would) arrange the booking for us. We tried hotels, guest houses and even travel agents both in Beijing and Pingyao but for some reason it was just too hard. So we rearranged our plans and cancelled Pingyao bookings to go straight through to Xi'an from Beijing - and of course discovered shortly after a backpackers hostel down the road from our hotel that said they *would* be able to book the tickets. Whether they would have actually been able to of course is another matter but it was a better response then we found anywhere else.

So maybe it's worth going straight there first to try and arrange your train tickets. It was the New Dragon Hostel, #26 Shijia Hutong, North Street Dongdan, Dongcheng (just down the road from the Hao Yuan hotel). Sorry no phone number or email address but I imagine it wouldn't be too difficult to find. Their Great Wall tours too were good value and they weren't shy about telling us which ones detoured to gift shops and whatnot so that we could avoid them!

Travel Tips for Xi'an

Forest of Steles - Beilin

by bhemak

The forest of steles (steles are the big stone tablets sometimes with script on them) is a museum to these fun looking things. The museum also has other big stone items like tombs, and animal statues. Fun stuff, but mabe a little overpriced for the quantity.

One of the stele's is the Analect from Confucius which was interesting to read them before and then see where they were translated from.

It is located near the south part of the city wall just east of the south gate.

Muslim Noodles

by TeriyakiKitty about Some street place - I'll ge the name soon..

This is an awesome little noodle place. From the street you can see the fire burning to heat the water that cooks the homemade noodles. You hear the "thwap thwap" of the noodles being slapped into shape. The atmosphere is perfect ... better than any restaurant.

----Update----

As of 2005, this particular noodle establishment has moved into a more "legit" setting.

Almost a year after my first taste of the noodles, Brandon and I went to Xi'an again. We, of course, headed to the Muslim noodles shop asap only to find that it, along with almost an entire block of buildings, had been leveled. :(

HOWEVER.... we ran across the street to a shabby dry cleaning place and asked the owner if he knew if the restaurant had moved.... it had. Score! He jotted down the directions and off we were. We hiked around Xi'an for the better part of an hour before finally stumbling across the new home for those glorious Xi'an Muslim noodles. I took some pictures of the sign for you. We asked the owner to tell us the exact name of the noodles .. but all we heard from her was something like guan guar mian ... which is probably screwy sounding due to her thick Shaanxi dialect. Anyway, I hope the sign helps. They only serve one thing.. noodles... I'm not sure if the classify as La Mian ... but they are large egg-type noodles served in a broth with veggies (and meat if you like- but I don't reccomend the meat.. stick with the veggies only). You can ask for spicy or non-spicy. To truely experience the greatness of these noodles, I'd choose the spicy ones.

Walk the Wall

by bsfreeloader

Xi’an is one of the few Chinese cities whose ancient wall is still intact. The wall was originally constructed during the Tang Dynasty. That wall is long gone, but that of the Ming Dynasty still stands. Just short of 14-kilometers long, it takes a good three hours to properly walk the wall. Alternatively, you can explore the wall on bicycle, via tricycle tour, or via motorized cart. Entry alone costs Y40 and is permitted only at the South and East Gates.

Hua Pagoda

by Willettsworld

This pagoda is all that remains of the Baoqing Temple that once stood here. The pagoda was erected during the time of Emperor Wenzong between 827-840 AD at its original site at the Anren Street of Daxing City.

Visit the Neolithic village...

by margaretvn

Visit the Neolithic village Banpo on the outskirts of Xian.
This museum is built on the site where the remains of a Yangshao village was discovered and it was opened in 1958. The village, in the Huanghe (Yellow River) valley, dates back to about 6,000 years ago and was discovered in 1953. There are three areas to the site – a residential quarter, a pottery- making ground and a graveyard. Between 1954 and 1957 10,000 square metres were excavated and among the finds were 45 huts, more than 200 cellars, 6 pottery kilns and 250 tombs. These tombs included 73 urns containing the remains of children. More than 10,000 tools and household utensils were also found. There were also large amounts of animal bones, fruit stones and millet. There are two types of huts on show in the main hall – the semi-subterranean one built at the early stages and the wooden-structured ones from the larger stage of development in the settlement. The pottery-making grounds lay to the east of the residential area and are one of the oldest sites of pottery making in China.

It is really well preserved, this urn contains the remains of a baby.
