Xian Guide and Driver

by viajador06

I will be in Xian on Sept. 4 and Sept. 5.
Can anyone recommend a driver or a guide for my stay?
Any idea what a driver charges for the day?

Thanks in advance!!

We stayed at a very nice hotel (Shang ri la) and through the concierge, they offerred to arrange a private car and driver for us. We ended up going with another group, using their transportation. I think the private car/driver route would have cost us around $100 u.s.d. for the day.

Good luck, and enjoy!

Travel Tips for Xi'an

It was Europeans who...

by SirRichard

It was Europeans who re-opened the road in their search for the ancient Silk Road cities. It happened in the latter part of the last century. Dunhuang lies at the western end of the Gansu Corridor, called Hexi Zoulang. The name Dunhuang originally meant 'prospering, flourishing'-- a hint that Dunhuang must once have been an important city. Its position at the intersection of two trade routes was what made Dunhuang flourish. The coming and going of horse and camel caravans carried new thoughts, ideas, arts and sciences to the East and West.

China Southern Airlines

by K.Knight

Anne and I were surprised to find China Southern Airlines to be a hassle free experience.
You often hear horror stories about air travel within China and I must admit that I was dreading the entire experience.
Apart from the standard check in at the airport, which was painfully slow, the rest of the experience was excellent.
The flight departed on time, the aircraft was modern, the crew were friendly, a meal was served, the plane landed on time and our luggage arrived with the same plane....SHEER LUXURY!
I would recommend them to anyone

Chinese Muslims

by Yso

The muslim quarter in Xi'an is quite famous. Its not a big area, and the main entrance is through the Gong tower (west of the Bell tower, close to central Xi'an).

If you're expecting to find yourself in the middle east then think again, these are chinese muslims, and you want see many Chadors (although you may see some). The main thing that changes is the food and what's for sale in the shops.

There's a good bazaar heading up from the gong tower to the mosque where you can buy souvenirs - but be sur eto bargain hard (try to pay 50% of the original asking price)

Small Wild Goose Pagoda

by lindyz

This was our last stop on our BIG DAY OUT with George, and unfortunately, by the time we got here, we were tired and all "templed-out"! So, we didnt take in too much information about the history of the small and large wild goose pagodas!

Entrance fee to the Small Wild Goose Pagoda was 50rmb = about $8AUD, which also included entry to a museum, the Jianfu Temple and huge area of landscaping.

We did find the actual building to be quite impressive and we climbed up a few flights of stairs in it, then we gave up - just too tired! And once again Im sorry, but I dont know the address either.

Great Mosque

by Blatherwick

This is one of the largest mosques in China. The current buildings date from the middle of the 18th century but earlier mosques are thought to have stood on the same spot. The building is built along Chinese architectural styles and is surrounded by gardens.

The 60,000 strong Muslim community that lives and works today in Xian traces its history to Arab and Persian merchants who, after traveling the Silk Road, became permanent residents of such cities as Guangzhou, Quanzhou, Hangzhou, Yangzhou, and Chang'an.

The courtyard is open to the public, but praying areas are for Muslims only.
