Xian is one of the core cities in China’s transportation network with flights, trains, and high-speed trains daily shuttling among other cities including Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Zhangjiajie, Guilin… More often than not, Xian is taken as a later station behind gateway cities like Beijing and Shanghai.
