If you're looking for the best location to stay in Xian, choose a property that's centrally located; such as Citadines Xingqing Palace Xian, this way, you can easily reach this attraction should you feel the need to go for an evening stroll. Just grab your ticket and get on that wall. It's a great place to cycle as well while discovering the intriguing stories of the past.

Learn Chinese Calligraphy

Sign up for an amazing journey of art at the Tang Bo Art Museum; discover the eye-candy secrets behind Chinese calligraphy and painting. It's a great way of getting up close and personal with the ancient Chinese arts so that you can have an in-depth appreciation of the country's culture.

Discover the History of China

The Shaanxi History Museum is a massive complex that showcases the rich history of China. It is located toward the Northwest of the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda in Xi'an.

Travel Back in Time at Yuanjia Village

Even though Xi'an is recognised due to its historical and cultural importance, it is a city that is immersed in modernity. But what if you need to glance back at how life was like during the Tang Dynasty? This is when you should head over to Yuanjia Village. This place is not that famous you wouldn't have to worry about bustling crowds. Experience a bygone era as you arrive at this place; relish the aromas of food being cooked with wood fire and the spectacular vistas of tiny houses and cobbled streets.
