  • Terracotta Army

    Xi'an Favorites

    One of the farmers who discovered the Terracotta Warriors and Horses back in the 1970's is present at the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor on a regular basis to provide autographs. You can buy a colorful souvenir book and have it autographed by him. Something worth buying and taking home while you are there!

  • Hua Qing Hot Springs

    Xi'an Favorites

    I really enjoyed Huaqingqiao most. My timing was especially appropriate since it was the day they buried Zhang Xueliang in Hawaii, the general who kidnapped Chiang Kai-shek. You oculd see the bullets littering the walls and the signpost that said 'Jiang was captured here' up the hill.

  • City Wall

    Xi'an Favorites

    Xian is one of the very few cities in China, where the city wall is still in very good condition. 12km of wall surround the city, which has been once the biggest city of the world.

On the photo : a copy of a chariot which was...

    If you are visiting Little Goose pagoda, you should drop in the nice tea-house which is close to it. You can buy here some interesting souvenirs, drink green tea ( free of charge), and spend a few relaxing moments with the nice hosts.
