Xian is an ancient city with more than 3,000 years of history. For many dynasties Xian was the capital of China, and its auspicious past still lingers in its impressive architecture and towering city walls.
The point of entry for many is Xianyang International Airport
, 40 kilometers from Xian’s city center, with travelers also arriving via long distance train at Xian Railway Station.
Among Xian's most famous landmarks are the Bell Towers in the exact center of the old city, the Wild Goose Pagodas located in the south district, the Drum Tower
, and the city walls themselves which measure 15 meters thick. A short drive from Xian stands the Terracotta Army
– one of the most important archeological finds of the last century.
