ALL OF THE THINGS TO DO IN THIS VIDEO:

Giant Wild Goose Pagoda (or Big Wild Goose Pagoda) – 1:00
A Buddhist pagoda built in 652 during the Tang dynasty. The surrounding parks are a great place to explore, with lots of very freaky looking statues around the trees. There is also a really good musical fountain show (the largest in Asia) that plays twice every evening in the summer. Best of all, it is absolutely free to enter!

Muslim Street – 1:40
The main food street area is known as Huimin Street or Muslim Quarter has a lot of great food (probably not the most vegetarian friendly though)

Tourist Bus to the Terracotta Warriors – 1:50
Don’t bother with an expensive taxi, getting to the Terracotta Warriors from Xi’an Railway Station is easy. There are constantly buses leaving from Line 5 just outside the main entrance. Look for Bus 306. It only costs 24 Yuan and the journey takes about an hour.

The Terracotta Warriors – 2:00
The entrance fee is 150 yuan, which is pretty justified for a genuine wonder of the world. In short, it is a collection of terracotta sculptures depicting the armies of Qin Shi Huang, the first Emperor of China, with the purpose of protecting him in his afterlife. A real must see!

Xi’an City Walls – 2:37
The fortifications of Xi’an, also known as Xi’an City Wall, are one of the oldest, largest and best preserved Chinese city walls. It was built under the rule of the Hongwu Emperor Zhu Yuanzhang as a military defense system. You can cycle around them, walk or even take a short boat trip. It’s a great way to explore the city if you are short on time. The entrance fee is 54 Yuan, which is not much for a minimum of a few hours worth of walking. Sunset here is awesome.

And that’s it! I tried to keep this short and not overload it with too many options – it’s a 24 hour travel guide after all! If you have ant questions, feel free to ask in the comments – I always reply!

  1. You forgot to add Mount Hua for hiking as well. The main trail and the wooden plank is busy and touristy but if you move on from there you are almost on your own. But besides that some great tips here that help other people out!

  2. Watched this one again… Cool red lanterns. That is one museum I do want to go to–usually I am not a museum kind of guy. About how far in advance do y'all prep for each leg of your travels? What was our favorite spot there, besides seeing the Terracotta Warriors?

  3. That Pagoda looks epic! What are these guys doing at night? Are they dancing? The Terracotta Army is crazy! I'd love to cycle around this place. Looks flat, so it's easy 😀 Cool vid!

  4. This was really helpful! I'm actually heading to Xian soon too and we want to go to the rainbow mountains this year. Can you tell I've just binge-watched all your China videos haha

  5. Wow how awesome would it be to visit Xian, the Terracotta Warriors are amazing, but the scenery around Xian that you showcased looks so much better to me! Subscribed!

  6. Xi'an retained the culture of the Tang Dynasty ,which is the most powerful Dynasty in China。If you want to see that, please take the metro subway (line 4) to the “ Big Wild Goose Pagoda”(Da-yan-ta), walk south all the way to Qu-jiang south lake(nan-hu),On the way you will pass the "Furong Garden of the Great Tang Dynasty", which is a must-go scenic spot, able to experience the architecture, art and culture of the Tang Dynasty.

  7. You should definitely have alot more recognition for your good content fella! I'm a big fan of sharing tips to avoid the tourist buses and finding alternative things to do/avoid the tourist traps!
    Love for you to swing by my channel somtime!

  8. So awesome! I really want to go now! I have heard of the terracotta army, but I didn't realize it was discovered so recently and that they were still digging and putting together warriors!
    Loved your suggestions of going to the park, seeing the fountains and going to the wall in the evening. Looks like a great itinerary!

  9. That's fascinating that it was only found in the 70s and they are still putting them together. I had no idea! I've always wanted to visit here since seeing a movie on it. Thanks for the other tips on things to see in town.

  10. Helpful information about the city. 14 city around the wall looks like a long distance to run. I hope that one day I will reach China as well. And a great video as always.

  11. Awesome coverage of Xian, will follow this advice when we visit. Has been on our list to visit China. How did you find navigating around the city, was there English signage?

  12. That Terracotta army really is incredible. And there seems like a lot of other cool stuff to see there too!

  13. Xian is very cool. Looks like you had nice weather. I really loved the evening at the wall. Great slow motion pushes revealing the scenes. Well done.

  14. Good to know you need a couple of hours to explore! Crazy that they are still putting more sculptures together.

  15. the Terracotta Warriors look so detailed and they are A LOT. i love how you showed other places to see and do in Xian alongside seeing the Terracotta Warriors. very informative! thanks for sharing! c/t
