From Airport to the Warriors

by kirangopal

Hi, just wanted some advice, i arrive in Xian on the 23rd Feb at about 9.30am and am stayin for one night. I was just wondering whether or not i can go and see the warriors straight from the sirport. What would be the best way to go, is there a bus/coach that goes there straight from the airport or if i took a taxi how much should i pay to get to the warriors and how long would it take.

Also are there taxi's available to go to xian city from the warriors, i am staying in The Bell Tower Hotel, again about how much would such a taxi cost?

sorry for the request just wondering,

Thanks

Kiran

RE: From Airport to the Warriors

by DSwede

The Terracotta Warriors are relatively close to the airport, both of which are a fair distance north-west of the main city.

A taxi from the airport to the memorial would take ~10 minutes. I did not take taxis very often because I opted more for public buses, but would say that you should not pay more than 45RMB (only a guess).

From the memorial back to the center of town is 45 minutes. You could negotiate a taxi, but would be expensive. Otherwise you can get on the Green Bus which will take you back to the Bell Tower.

Or you can take public bus 306 which will take you back near the train station. From there, a quick taxi would be enough to get you to your hotel, maybe 30RMB.

Why don't you ring the Bell Hotel(we stayed there -go to my page) and see if you can organise a guide and driver to pick you up at the airport and then drive to the warriors and other sites nearby before you get to the hotel. We organised a guide and driver through the hotel - again see my page for prices etc.

Travel Tips for Xi'an

Antiseptic Gel is a Must

by jcsleal

I don't have much to add to the comments already posted.
BUT, consider keeping some antiseptic gel to clean your hands before eating. I haven't seen restaurants with soap available. And people are always handling cash (western credit cards are not accepted in 99.5% of the stores). As I've mentioned, consider bringing cash, instead of relying on your credit cards. Visa/Mastercard/Amex are not accepted in most of Xi'an stores, markets or restaurants. Traveller Checks are a lot safer and can be exchanged at any Bank of China branch.

No Restaurant Tip

by ivinlau

There's no restaurant tip, but one thing is for sure. The local food in Xi'an, is delicious! The hand-made noodles, fried "you tiao", small oranges are simply great! Road-side stalls are deliciously cooked and is very very cheap!
Almost all the road-side food stalls are cheap & good!
A pork bun selling at only RMB1 ! Which is about SGD0.20!

The 8th Wonder of the World

by 807Wheaton

We feel so fortunate to have enjoyed a day seeing the Terra Cotta Warriors. There are 3 main pits here that are being excavated. This was discovered in 1974 and is now a full fledged tourist stop. Emperor Qin Shi Huang or the Founding Father of the Qin created the statues, horses and chariots as real life size figures to accompany him in his burial.
What is amazing to me, to give this exhibit some perspective is that when these figures were being crafted, Jesus was walking on the Galilee.

The city walls of Xian

by Limclarence

This is a really nice stroll in winter. We started the walk from the southern entrance. It's quiet and peaceful up there, and you can look at the daily activities of the people from up there. You can also compare the architecture of the buildings within the city walls and those outside the walls. We really like the stroll up there, and you can even rent a bike and cycle on the cobblestone path.

The Old City Wall

by jasmine_ding

The Old City Wall of Xi’an is the most complete city wall in China.

The city wall, after 600 years, still stands, at 12 meters high and 13.7 kilometers in length. The base of the wall was made of earth, quicklime, and glutinous rice extract. Its top and external layer were covered with bricks.

There is a fort every 120 meters apart. The forts were built to allow the soldiers to shoot those enemies who tried to climb the wall, without exposing themselves. There are almost 100 forts on the wall.

A watch tower is located on each of the four corners of the wall. The one at the southwestern corner has a special shape, round, thicker than other corners. It is famous, because there is a Chinese expression, if we say “someone’s face looks like a southwestern corner of the city wall”, it means that the person has a lot of nerve.

The Grand South Gate is the most important gate of the wall. When important dignitaries come to Xi’an, the local government will hold a ceremony, lowering the suspension bridge and opening the gate.

Outside the wall, a moat runs around it. Around the moat, there is a park and some squares. In the evening, local people entertain themselves, singing, dancing and playing instruments on the square of the Grand South Gate.

I believe the best time to visit the Old City Wall is around sunset. So you can walk or ride on a bicycle on the wall, and also enjoy the wall at night. When it’s dark, the moon, the architecture and you are the hosts of the city.

Time:8:00~22:00
Ticket:40 RMB
Metchod: walk, bicycle (rent on the wall), electrified vehicle
