There're no direct flights to Xi'an from Singapore. You'll have to fly via Shanghai. 3 airlines have direct flights for Singapore -- Shanghai: China Eastern and Singapore Airlines (both daily) and Garuda (not so often).

Travel Tips for Xi'an

Won't leave home without it

by JASwenson

My Gorilla tripod does not take up much room in my luggage, can be used in areas where they typically do not allow tripods, and helped me to take some great detailed shots at the terracotta warriors.

Cheap and good local restaurant

by pmarshuk about Don't know

One night managed to break away from the group and two of us went off in search of a place to eat. We ended up in a small restaurant which had plain formica tables and a linoleum floor, but had quite a few Chinese in it so it was looking promising. No english on the menu and nobody in the place spoke English. Managed to order Tsingtao (beer) ok but the food was another matter. In the end we just pointed at somebody elses food and had something like that. It was a delicious mixture of beef and vegetables in a vegetable broth. We had a really tasty mixture of beef and vegetables in a lovely broth. And the cost for the whole meal plus two large bottles of beer was less than we paid for one beer back at the hotel.

Go for a ride on the wall

by al2401

Originally built in the Tang Dynasty, the Xian City Wall was enlarged and extended during the Ming Dynasty. The work was started by the first Ming emperor Zhu Yuanzhang. It is the most complete surviving wall in China.

The wall is 12 metres high and has a total distance of almost 14 km. There are 4 main gates, one at each point of the compass. The South Gate is the most magnificent of the four. The wall is surrounded by a moat most of which is now parkland.

The top of the wall can be accessed at a number of places including the four main gates and the whole of the top is open to visitors. What better way to explore the wall and get great views of the city than by bicycle. There are vendors at most main gates and a bike will cost about 20 CNY for about 1 and 1/2 hours - enough time to cycle the whole distance. Tandem bikes are 40 CNY.

Warning - the top of the wall is cobbled with large uneven paving stones and bike seats are not the most comfortable!

Shaanxi History Museum

by bonio

Interesting displays on the vast amount of local history, ensure you have a good guide, there is lots to learn and is a good stop off before visiting the terracotta army - learn before you go! Most exhibits have labels in English.

The Making of Terracotta Army

by muddybok

The following are steps (more or less**) to build a terracotta warrior or horse.

1) cook the clay & mixed it with rice water
2) roll those premixed clay into rope like dough
3) use those dough to build warrior from ground up in circular outlining manner (horses will be build by parts & joint them together at later stage)
4) the surface will be smoothen with hands and some simple devices to create patterns for armors & facial expressions
5) the warriors & horses will be let air dry for almost 1 month
6) after the air drying process, the army & horses will be baked under slow fire at 400 degrees Celsius to avoid horses or terracotta warrior from blown off by the steam from wet clay
7) after the 400 degrees baking, the horses and terracotta warriors will have to go through another round of over 1000 degrees Celsius hardening process
8) finally the coloring of horses and terracotta warriors

Note**: I heard this from my local tour guide, so I believe it is accurate
