Saludos 2 all. The terracota army is a fantastic place to see. The complex is very big. First see the movie that explains how this army came to be, at the site. Just outside the theater is the gift store where u can purchase a book of the whole museum and get it signed by the man who discovered the army. (yes he is still alive) (book w/signature cost me 20 Dlls.) Walk through the whole exhibit and dont forget to get your picture taken with your face in the place of a soldier, general or archer. They come out just great. There is a cafeteria and another museum. You can purchase terracota figurines and 5 piece sets for just 1 dollar as you leave the gates where you purchased entry ticket. There are many stores on your walk back to parking. I advise u not purchase fur goods since they are made of dog fur, made to look like other species. Bargain ,bargain and bargain and you will be suprised to see how in-expensive you can purchase many, many things. On your way back to city stop at big park where many emperors are buried. There is one large tomb you can enter. If you take tour, ask them to stop at geology museum (rocks) its unique. Enjoy. I did.

While in Xian there are a few other sites to see, including a royal spa/ bath from the Qing dynasty. (Besides the older historic value, this was the site of a brief incident during the revolution, between Chiang Kai Shek and the Communists.)

There is a brand new (well, it was brand new 2 years ago!) fountain downtown. It is hard to describe, but I'll try. They have shows at night, where the jets of water come off and on to music, with different colored lights. It is a really nice show, and attracts a lot of people.

The provincial art/ history museum was quite nice, with many display signs in English and Chinese.

The city is extremely hot in the summer, although it's also dry.

The admission is actually currently 90 RMB (peak season), not 95 RMB. You get half price if you have a student card.
Best YEAR to visit?! Any year...
Read any guidebook (or search online) and you'll find out about opening hours and what's exhibited there.

Travel Tips for Xi'an

From Xian...

by SirRichard

From Xian we drove out into the countryside and stopped at this famous hot springs bath. It was built by an emperor for his most favored concubine, Lady Young, for she loved to bathe here. Apparently, this ruler spent so much time doting on his mistress that he let the country slide into ruin. In each of the small buildings is a differently shaped bath.

When I was in that part...

by SirRichard

When I was in that part of China, you still couldn't see many vehicles around. The only motor vehicles you could see were trucks and buses. As there was no traffic, there were no rules, they just blowed the horn when they were gonna pass another vehicle... and you crossed your fingers!
You could still see a lot of charriots, bycicles, donkeys... in rural ways. I am afraid now traffic has increased, and I hope rules too.

Banpo - an ancient civilization: Part 1

by mke1963

One of the oldest human settlements on the planet ? around 6,000 years old ? can be found on the eastern outskirts of Xi?an. The actual excavation site is closed for renovations until October 2004, although several of the exhibition rooms remain open.
In 1953 excavations for a factory uncovered the remains of an old village on a sloping site. The village covers some 5 hectares, and is believed to be typical of the early Yangshao settlements which existed then in a region which extended along the Huanghe and Weihe, from modern-day central Shaanxi through to north-western Henan and southern Shanxi provinces. In fact, microlithic communities are known to have extended from Gansu and Nei Mongol through central China to the Shandong peninsular. The southern and eastern culture is known as the Yangshao (named after a discovered settlement east of Luoyang, Henan) and the more western culture is named after Majiayao village in Gansu province.
These people used stone and bone tools to break the ground, plant grains and vegetables, and harvest them. They fished using reverse barb hooks still used today by fishermen everywhere, and kept dogs and pigs in animal enclosures. They even used hard stone discs to grind the grains and seeds, and stored the food for use in winter months. It is known that they grew cabbage, mustard, hemp and fox-tail millet. Despite the fragile sustenance agriculture of the field crops, the Yangshao people still relied heavily on hunting and gathering of berries and nuts.

A 6000 year old village

by stevemt

Considering that this place was found when excavation for a power station, we are very lucky to have found it.

Its well worth a visit as it is a fascinating insight into life in that era.

Many things have been discovered about the era from this site. When excavating, they found the cemetery, but they also found some pots buried near the foundations f the houses containing children's bones. After some research and carbon dating etc, it was concluded that in those times, a child was deemed to become an adult at age 14 (or thereabouts) and that apparently only adults could be buried in the cemetery. Children younger than 14 were buried in pottery jars near the foundations of the home.

The silent army - Part 2

by mke1963

Some 2000 pieces have already been restored, and archaeologists continue to work every day in the deep pits.
The rows of soldiers are all below the ground level, and it is only in the one or two places where the visitor can get down to their level (notably just by the stairs at the entrance to Pit #1) that you can get a real feel for the scale of the massed ranks.
I understand that if you are an archaeologist or anthropologist you can make arrangements a long way in advance with the authorities in Xi'an to get guided access inside the pits.
The whole complex now includes other exhibitions, including the famous and stunning bronze chariots, and information about local geology and geography.
It is an awesome experience, and I would recommend getting a good guide from Xi'an who really knows the place, but avoid the group tours that will rush it all.
Note that due to 'beautification' the complex is now a very long walk from the car park, which can be tiresome in the heat.
Pity the money is not spent on archaologists rather than landscaping and marble.
