The best time to visit

Xiang has four seasons; however, summer and winter bring about extreme temperatures. Thus, the best time to visit would be during spring or autumn when the weather is just nice. The period from March to May is quite popular with tourists.

Getting to Xian

IF you are travelling from the far west, you will probably need to take a transit flight from destinations like Singapore or Bangkok. It is necessary that you apply for a visa well ahead of time. Getting to Xian if you are already in China is no more than a 3-hour flight.

Accommodation

It is recommended that you book Xian China hotels in advance if your stay will coincide with Chinese holidays. The city centre is home to plenty of classy hotels like Grand Park Xian. However, the option of hostels is available as well.
