Travel through Xi’an and you will find yourself walking through the comprehensive book of China’s rich and ancient history. The capital city for 13 dynasties, Xi’an has prospered through the years with the emergence of the Silk Road. It is the birthplace of China’s many ideas, discoveries, civilizations and traditions, thus making China a big influential force in the world. Take a step back in time and clamber to see Xi’an’s inexhaustible monuments and cultural relics. Biking is the way to go to appreciate Xi’an City Wall and see the South Gate--illuminated as the sun goes down. Make sure to taste the city’s signature dish--Yang Rou Pao Muo (thick bread and hearty lamb soup)! And what is a visit to Xi’an without meeting the Terracotta Army who faithfully guard their emperor’s tomb since 3rd century B.C.?
