by kyhar

hi

anyone has any revies on hotel ibis in xian ? i am planning to stay there, but there is little information on the location.

How do i get there from the train station and are there any public bus going to the terricotta warriors from near the hotel ?

Or does anyone have any recommendations on a convenient place to stay in xian that is about 170rmb for one night.

Thanks

the only public bus i know going to terracota warrios is from the bus station beside the xian train station.

The terracotta warriors are a fair way (30+ km) from the city centre. You could join a tour group, but they tend to have a lot of "shopping opportunities" and not much sightseeing opportunity. On the other hand they go to several places. You could also organise yourself a taxi for the day - I think I paid 250 2 years ago.

Don't know about Ibis. I stayed at City (Inn), which was about 50 yards down Nanjie from Bell Tower, on the right. Less than 200 but I can't say how much less.

The hotel in Xian downtown, 2-km from the railway station, on Heping Road. 220-rooms .

Bus number 306 took a little over one hour to get to the Terracotta Warriors.

Travel Tips for Xi'an

The Terracotta Army of XIAN....

by l_joo

The Terracotta Army of XIAN. What you have to do is buy a ticket cost RMB60 and enter. There are many many tour guides willing to offer you their services for RMB40, they can speak English, Italian, French and more. Also, just outside the gate you can get some cute tigers as souvenirs for only RMB2 to 10 according to it's size.

Bus no.306 to Terracotta Warrior

by maywongkm

Contrary to tips from most sources, it costs 7yuan one-way (approx. 40mins) to the Terracotta Warrior site now. According to the bus conductor, there's a bus that leaves every 10 minutes in front of the China Post (post office) shop, opposite from the Xi'An train station. This bus also stops at the HuaQing Pool (6yuan one-way), Mausoleum of Emporer Qin (also 7yuan), until it reaches the last stop at Terracotta. Take the same bus where the bus drops u to get back to the train station.

Though a cheap option, it's not exactly a clean bus. Many locals take it to get to the city too. The bus conductor will not let you up if it's already full.

Banpo - an ancient civilization: Part 3

by mke1963

Just to give an idea of the sophistication of the Banpo and Yangshao potters, many of the objects have ears and handles, many are polished, many are painted different colours with brushes, and the pre-painted surfaces were lightened to a whiter or redder shade. They were able to manufacture all kinds of bowls, jugs, steamers, eating and drinking vessels, and an amazing amphora-type jar that tilts when placed in water so allowing the water to flow in. This jar also had a very narrow neck to prevent the water splashing out when being carried.
The development of pottery meant that foodstuffs could be stored for consumption later, and so there was no need to follow the animals for hunting as they migrated. Good pottery created human settlements: it is sobering to think that the humble pottery plate, cup, amphora and storage urn made it possible for homo sapiens to stop hunting and start building a place to live.
Although much knowledge of the settlement social structures is conjecture (and challenged by many experts), archaeologists create a very convincing picture of life at Banpo. The clan seems to have been matriarchal, judging by the pattern of burying females with more treasures and objects, and because of the curious practice of reburying people around or in the grave of certain women who died later, with that woman placed at the centre. The first evidence of a patriarchal civilisation doesn?t appear for almost another thousand years.
The graves are interesting, with the bodies arranged facing south and usually with some funereal bowls and jewellery. Some children were buried inside large urns, and in graves within the residential area. Adults were buried outside the defensive trench.
Chinese archaeologists are keen to demonstrate that these were also primitive collective settlements, as storage areas and cellar complexes are clearly communal. Bai Shouyi?s book 'An Outline History of China' proudly states "Collective labour and the public character of the ownership of the means of production....". Yes, quite.

HISTORY OF THE WARRIORS
In 221...

by SirRichard

HISTORY OF THE WARRIORS
In 221 B.C. Ying Zheng (259-210 B.C.), King of Qin, became the First Emperor of Qin, (Qin Shihuangdi), when he managed to consolidate the neighboring states under his rule. He had begun work on his tomb shortly after becoming king of Qin at the age of 13. The work took 39 years.
Everything about it is big and grandiose: it covers 56.25 square kilometers; there are terra-cotta models of 8,000 warriors; it took 700,000 workers to complete it; thousands of workers were buried within the tomb; the tomb has pearls embedded in the ceiling to represent the stars; rivers and lakes were modeled using liquid mercury (but all you can see here are the thousands of warriors.
