Our guide and driver will meet you at your hotel lobby at the confirmed time and escort you to the Chinese calligraphy class. We handpick 3 distinctive sites for reference where you could take the class: Yanyuan Garden in Small Wild Goose Pagoda, Museum of Stone Steles, and Tangbo Art Museum.  You are free to choose one from them:

Yanyuan Garden

The Garden is located in the Small Wild Goose Pagoda Scenic Area. It is 20 minutes drive from Bell Tower. Besides the calligraphy learning, you could pay a visit to the exhibition hall of Xi’an Museum and the ancient Chinese-style courtyard of Small Wilde Goose Pagoda. There is no entrance fee unless you climb the Small Wild Goose Pagoda.

Beilin Museum (Museum of Stone Steles)

Beilin Museum near Bell Tower is called the No.1 library of stone books in China. The museum collects large quantities of inscribed steles made from the Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD) to the Qing Dynasty (1616-1912). The steles bear both Chinese calligraphy art and traditional Chinese literature content. And the steles also explain the mainstream culture transmission method in ancient China. If you are a fan of Chinese history and culture, a visit to the Beilin Museum after the end of a calligraphy class is a great opportunity to gain some insight into the art of Chinese calligraphy.
