Birthplace of Chinese Civilization
Historians often describe Xi'an, capital city for over a dozen dynasties, as the birthplace of Chinese civilization. Over 3,000 years old, the city contains more historic ruins and museums than any visitor can hope to explore in a single trip to Xi'an. Formerly the eastern terminus of the ancient Silk Road, today the city offers a pleasant cosmopolitan atmosphere and easy access to some of China's most important tourist attractions. Among these, the World Heritage Site containing a giant army of terracotta warriors takes the cake, drawing over 2 million tourists each year. Other notable attractions in Xi'an include palaces, parks, mausoleums, and the remains of ancient city walls and gates. Xi'an is in Shaanxi. When using our China road trip planning site to make an itinerary online, Xi'an holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
