A-Fang palace

by Evincer

Hi, this is my first post. I plan to make a trip to Xi'an in June, and I was wondering if anyone had any information regarding the A-Fang palace (or E-pang palace). From what I was able to cull from the internet this place is either a 2000 year old imperial fortress or a tourist trap built in 1995. Can anyone help? This place seems intersting, but I'm not sure if it's worth the admission. Thanks

In my opinion, this place is not worth to visit because the real e-pang palace was destroyed 2000 years ago. You can just see the architecture complex in ancient style, fake. There are many interesting things to do in Xi'an. I'd like to give you a hand.

Hi.
I'm a local who grew up in Xi'an. Now i live in an overseas country. A-Fang palace is said to be the largest and the most luxury palace in Chinese History. it was built more than 2000 years ago. it was intended to be used as the palace for the first-ever emperor.(the empeor who built the terracotta warriors as part of his tomb). However, the palace was destroyed in a fire soon after China was taken over at that time. and the A-Fang Palace in Xi'an now was rebuilt totally. Please take note of that and plan your time wisely. Actually, there are many interesting places in Xi'an for you to explore. Xi'an is definitely a city more than terracotta warriors

Thanks for the reply. (asked this question on lonelyplanet.com, but didn't quite get any meaningful responses) Looks like I'm going to skip out on this one and see the rest of the city..

In the muslim quarters you find many small restaurants, in which the specialities are muslim dishes, or chinese food with muslim influence.

It tastes somehow like chinese, but sometimes lighter.

8th wonder of the world-Emperor Qin’s Terracotta W

by albaaust

There are three pits, the largest being pit one which contains the 6,000 warriors and horses, pit 2 is a composite formation of cavalry, chariot and infantry soldiers and pit 3 contains 68 Guardians. The building housing Pit 3 also has series of glassed in displays of some of the terracotta statues so that you can see them up close.

The first thing you need to know is that it is a long walk from car/bus park to the site. Along the way there will eventually be row upon row of souvenir shops. At the moment the whole area is under a large rebuilding and renovation progam ready for the onslaught of tourists expected in 2008. Be aware there will be a lot of touts selling cheap imitations of sets of the warriors. If you do buy check it is the set you bought as often they will swap for a set that is damaged.

Also worthwhile is the circular surround movie theatre which plays a 30 minute documentary that charts the life and death of Emperor Qin and life at that time. This was behind the souvenir shop area.

Cost: 90 Yuan each

Xi'an Chengqiang

This is the largest and best preserved wall in China! The wall dates back 1400 years . Having been in China a couple of weeks we are already spoiled by havinf seen so many ancient reminders ...so we are not surprised by this.

You can choose to bicycle around the 9 mile loop on top of the wall or just take a stroll on it . The pollution was so heavy when we were there we just took a slow stroll to save our lungs.

Bikes can be rented near the South Gate for about $2.00 an hour.
