The terracotta army

When in Xian, there is simply no way one could miss out on an opportunity to see the amazing terracotta army! Hop aboard one of those special tourist buses and get going to the terracotta museum. Rest assured that you won’t regret!

Conquer Mt. Huashan

This is a mountain with five peaks with different trails leading to each one. You will not find any fancy restaurants here, instead, there will be local tea houses and shrines along the way. While on your hike, “The Plank Road in the Sky” is an attraction that cannot be missed!

Cycle around Xian City Wall

After the tiresome and adventurous exploration, you are bound to feel exhausted and sleep in a little late. Therefore, one of the best options at this point would be to rent out a bike and cycle across the Xian City Wall. This monument is amazingly well preserved.
