Meet your friendly tour guide and driver at your downtown hotel. Prepare for an exciting day exploring the historical and cultural gems of Xian.

Our first destination is the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. Built during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), this architectural masterpiece was originally erected to house Buddhist scriptures brought from India by the monk Xuanzang. Discover the intricate carvings and statues that adorn the pagoda, each telling a story of the ancient Silk Road and the cultural exchange that took place within. As you ascend the pagoda, marvel at the breathtaking views of Xian, gaining a unique perspective on the city’s evolution over the centuries.

Transitioning from spiritual wonders to historical leisure, we’ll then venture to Qujiang Pool. Once a favorite retreat for royalty during the Tang Dynasty, this scenic area invites you to step back in time. Explore the remnants of ancient pavilions and gardens, imagining the laughter and joy that once filled this royal playground.

Savor the flavors of Xian’s renowned cuisine during a delightful lunch at a local restaurant.

Returning to the city center, our next stop is the Ancient City Wall. This well-preserved fortification, standing tall since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), is not just a physical barrier but a testament to the city’s enduring strength and resilience. Enjoy a leisurely walk or bike ride along the wall, absorbing the historical ambiance and capturing picturesque views of modern Xian juxtaposed against ancient architecture.

The journey continues with a leisurely stroll through the vibrant Muslim Street. Marvel at the lively markets, where the aromas of spices and sizzling street food fill the air. Engage with local vendors, sample traditional snacks, and witness the harmonious blend of cultures that define this historic area.

As the day concludes, your guide and driver will escort you back to your hotel, ensuring you’ve experienced the best of Xian’s ancient wonders and local delights.
