Xi'an in one day

by ger4444

Is it possible to "do" Xi'an in one day (staying there at one night)
my idea was:

-terracotta army(one hour travelling, 3 hours visiting. back at noon in Xi'an)
between 1 am and evening:
-Wild Goose Pagodas
-drum tower en bell tower
-muslim quarer (o.a the great mosque, bazaar, Huajue Xiang alley )
-grand south gate, city wall, biking on the wall 2 hours around
(and eventually The Eight Immortals Temple)

Don't miss the Shaanxi Provincial History Museum and Hanyangling. Those were the highlights of my recent trip -- I just went to Xi'an for 4 days earlier this month. Those two together would take up more or less a full day, but you can fit in the Big Goose Pagoda and music fountain in the evening.
Otherwise, your original plan would be better for 1.5 days, not just 1.

I agree that 1.5 days would be minimum to get all that you list and the few random things you'll find on your walks back and forth.

1.5 days would be the minimum. I think you will find that you will want more than 3 hours for the Terracotta Army. Xi'an itself is a fascinating place and to do it at a gallop will not do it justice.

Re: Xi'an in one day

by ellyse

There're of course a lot of people on the TripAdvisor forums who fly in and out the same day, but they usually see only the Terracotta Warriors and almost nothing else, perhaps only a cursory glance at the Muslim Quarter and/or city walls.

Don't count on only one hour of travel time. Buses typically only leave when full, and due to heavy rains & flooding it took us 3 hours to get to the terracotta warriors. It was well worth the trip though!

BOOKMARK!

my question exactly and awesome responses. thanks!

who knows the cheapest domestic flight from Beijing, or is there a better way?

Re: Xi'an in one day

There are lots of discount agencies, but I found C-trip to work well for me while living in China.

Pay attension if you are getting paper ticket or electronic. If paper, you must have an address in China for delivery, or arrange for airport pick-up.

I'll repeat. Overnight train there and back would save you more time.

Terracotta Warriors

by reshmi

This was definitely the highlight of my entire trip to China. The terracotta warriors and horses are one of the most significant archeological excavations of the 20th century without a doubt. Even today, excavation work is still going on at the 1.5km site. The site, a mausoleum, was created by Qui Shi Huang when he ascended the throne in 246BC, and took 11 years to finish. The site remained buried for many, many years. Until, in 1974 when some peasants uncovered some of the pottery whilst they were digging for a well. You can even see where the water well was!!!

At the Terracotta museum, you will see life size statues of warriors and horses in battle. Each statue is unique with individual facial expressions and carrying different real amour. Altogether there are more than 7,000 warriors, horses, chariots and weapons!!!
The museum covers an area of 16,300 square meters, and is divided into three sections: No. 1 Pit, No. 2 Pit, and No. 3 Pit (representing the 3 archaeological sites).

It is open from 8am - 6pm.
Entrance fees are:
CNY 90 (Mar.1 to Nov. 30),
CNY 65 (Dec. 1 to Feb. 28/29)

Huaqing Pool

by josephva

The pools were fully established here in the Qing dynasty. The most romantic story that accompanies the history of the springs is that of Emperor Xuan Zong and his concubine Yang Guifei. Yang was a poor girl who the Emperor took a fancy to and promoted to the position of "lady". Legend has it that he was so enamoured by her beauty that it distracted him from his daily work. The Empire was being threatened and the courtiers threatened to kill the concubine, blaming her for the Emperor's mismanagement of his nation. Desperate and madly in love, Yang hung herself to save the country and her lover's name.The springs were renamed the Huaqing or "The Fair" springs, in honor of Yang Guifei's beauty.

The City Wall

by xiquinho

This is one of the few city walls still standing in China, and was built between 1347 and 1378. It is a most impressive sight, and its full extent can be seen from the air before landing at Xian. From the battlements you get an excellent view of the city, and the moat surrounding the wall.
