Travel Tips for Xi'an

Walk near the Bell Tower

by albaaust about Bell Tower surrounds

Maybe it was because Xian was the first place we went to but we were enthralled with the flashing,neon lights of the Katyuan Department Store, the hotels opposite and the surreal view of the Bell Tower lit up.

Have a look at the photos and see if you agree!

Archeology in progress

by stevespencer420

The Terra Cotta army is a must see sight in Xi'an. It is quite a trip from the center of town. From the rail station, you can take a bus. Our hostel had an organized tour that would have included a stop at the hot springs, which would have been nice but we did not have time. They also told us that for a fee of Y300 we could hire a driver to take us there and wait to transport us back. We would certainly recommend taking the bus as it is super inexpensive and you can do things at your own pace.

Be prepared to be overwhelmed at the sight of pit number one. It is HUGE and they have not finished excavating it yet. Despite old warnings, there were not restrictions on photography. The very first view is astounding, but difficult to get a good photo because of crowding. Be patient and worn your way to the front or hold the camera high. Once you turn the corner to either side, there is plenty of room to get zoom shots. At the far end was the fascinating display of figures being reassembled from pieces.

The post cards sold at the gift shop and by the vendors on the way out are worth the investment, as they are inexpensive and professionally shot.

Be prepared for a lot of walking as the grounds are huge. Not on the way in, but on the way out you will be agressively marketed by vendors. The replicas of the warriors that they sell are not quite as nice as the ones at the official gift shop, but the ones we bought survived being shipped overseas.

Como se hacen / How to make them

by elpariente

Antes de ir a ver a los guerreros de Terracota , fuimos a ver una fábrica , donde los estaban haciendo de todos los tamaños y formas
Allí aprendimos que el barro se cuece a 600º , la cerámica a 700º y la terracota a 900º y además se le añade caolín para darle un mejor acabado
Los cuerpos de los guerreros pueden ser iguales , sobre todo los del mismo grupo militar y rango , pero los brazos y la cabeza son todos distintos , pero nunca igual que la cara real de ningún guerrero
Parecen de verdad !!!!!!!


Before going to see the Terracotta warriors, we went to visit a factory where they were making all sizes and shapes of warriors
We learned that the mud is tretad to 600 °C, the ceramic 700 º C and terracotta to 900 º C and also kaolin is added to get a better finish
The bodies of the warriors can be equal, especially iif they are of the same military group and rank , but the arms and the head are all different, but never like the face of any real warrior
They look real!!!!

Forest of Steles Museum

by Blatherwick

I found this museum to be really cool. I only wish that I could read Chinese so that I could understand the texts.

This museum is actually more like a library and is said to contain the heaviest collection of books in the world.
With 900 years of history, the museum holds a large collection of the earliest stone steles of different periods, from the Han Dynasty to the Qing Dynasty. All together, there are 3,000 steles and the museum is divided into seven exhibitions halls, which mainly display the works of calligraphy, painting and historical records. All of these record some achievements in the development of the Chinese culture and reflect the historical facts of the cultural exchanges between China and other countries.

Once the site of the Temple of Confucius during the Northern Song dynasty (960--1127), the Forest of Stone Steles Museum was initially established in AD 1087 when some precious stone steles were moved here for safe keeping, including the "Classic on Filial Piety" written by Emperor Xuanzong in AD 745 and "the Kaicheng Stone Steles" arved in AD 837. With an area of 31,000 square meters, the Forest of Stone Steles used to be the principal museum for Shaanxi Province since 1944. Then because of the large number of stone steles, it was officially named as the Forest of Stone Steles Museum in 1992.

Forest of Stele

by socrates_07

The Forest of Stele, which is located on the site of the ancestral temple of the Tang Dynasty. The Forest of Stele was first founded in 1090 A.D. during the Song Dynasty. It is the oldest and richest collection of steles in China. The stele are numerous enough to be likened to a forest, hence the name. This museum consists of six large exhibition halls, seven corridors and a stele pavilion. There are more than 1,000 stele of eight dynasties from the Han down to the Qing. They are of great value to historians and for the study of calligraphic development.
