Itinerary

Day 1Xi’an Arrival

Attractions: Tomb of Emperor Jingdi (Hanyangling)
Meal: Not Included
Hotel: Overnight in Xi’an

When you arrive in Xi’an, your private guide and driver will accompany you to the Hanyang Tomb, which is near the airport. It is listed as one of the top 10 things to do in Xi’an on TripAdvisor.

It is Emperor Jingdi’s mausoleum. His son, Wudi, established the Silk Road in 138 BC. After the war-torn years of the Qin Dynasty, the Han Dynasty had its own cultural characteristics. Discover the reasons for it reaching its peak at that time.

This attraction has fewer tourists and you’ll see lots of small clay warriors displayed under a glass walkway.

Very different to the serious faces of the warriors in the Terracotta Army, these warriors have mysterious smiles on their faces. The walkway provides a wonderful insight into how they were built.

Afterward, you’ll be driven back to your hotel and you can enjoy some free time for the evening.

If you arrive at night, we can arrange for you to visit the Hanyang Tomb on the last day as it’s in the same direction as the airport.

Day 2Xi’an

Attractions: Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, Farmer’s Cave, Muslim Quarter
Meal: Not included
Hotel: Overnight in Xi’an

After driving for 1½ hours from Xi’an, you’ll meet the terracotta warriors that you have seen in photos, books, and on television hundreds of times. Discover the army’s secrets with the help of your guide. How were the warriors made? How are they preserved? What were their original colors?

Then your guide will bring you even closer to the warriors as you learn how to make miniature versions from a local shokunin family at their cave dwelling.

Learn traditional techniques used 2,000 years ago and try your hand at molding and carving. Have a nice interaction with the family and listen to their stories for a taste of the locals’ real lifestyles.

There are only a few craftsmen left who continue to work in a traditional way. Visiting their workshops is a good way to support the local community, which should be sustainably developed.

In the afternoon, you will be driven back to the downtown area where you will visit the Great Mosque and have fun in the Muslim Quarter. Challenge yourself to take a food adventure, finding both traditional dishes and special snacks that have gone viral.

Day 3Xi’an Departure

Attractions: Shaanxi History Museum, Big Wild Goose Pagoda, Han Chinese Clothing Experience, City Wall Riding
Meal: Not included

Start the morning at the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. The Pagoda was built in the 7th century to house the Buddhist materials that Xuanzang (Tripitaka) brought back from his epic journey to India.

Then move to Shaanxi History Museum that is one of the top 10 museums in China. With collections ranging from the times of ape men to the Qing Dynasty before the Opium War in 1839, and from large bronze wares to exquisite golden carvings, it is a feast for your eyes.

The Tang Dynasty (618–907) section is a highlight because its glory days with open-minded attitudes and cultural exchange were the main reasons for development in China.

Traditional costumes are also a part of China’s culture. After visiting the museum, you will get an opportunity to learn about a traditional Chinese national costume in an ancient academy based on the Ming and Qing dynasties.

Lasting for about an hour, your guide will teach you about the Hanfu and you will also have time to try on the costume to get a unique taste of the ancient culture.

Later in the afternoon, ride a bike on the ancient city wall. From the top, you can enjoy views of the different areas of the city, including areas with time-honored brand-name shops to busy bar streets.

Experience the essence of Xi’an and its people, and get a taste of Chinese civilization. Leave Xi’an with sweet memories.
