Why is Xian Metro Worthy of Trying?

Xian subway is of great characteristics. Each station is decorated with a large number of reliefs, cultural walls and so on.

Along the subway route, you will follow our guide to stop by 2-4 stations, getting off to visit several famous spots where you can feel strong locally humanistic and distinctive atmosphere. You probably will stop at 4 stations and their highlights are as below:

Zhonglou Station: you can visit famous Bell & Drum Tower Square and Muslim Street here. Bell Tower is located at the center of Xian city, and Muslim Street is a good place to try local snacks. Visitors can stroll on the square, passing dazzling souvenirs or artifacts shops & snack stalls.

Yongningmen Station: it’s the nearest subway station to the South Gate of City Wall. South Gate is a popular place for young people to play music. You will also see a special way of exercise popular among middle-aged and elderly people in China (Square Dance). Additionally, you can visit the City Wall, the largest and best-preserved city wall in China. It was built for military defense in the ancient time. Visitors can optionally ride a bike on the top of the City Wall.

Xiaozhai Station: Xiaozhai is regarded as the most youthful trading area in Xian. The famous Saga International Shopping Center is right here.

Dayanta Station: there’s a large plaza at the foot of the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, a world-famous Buddhist holy land. The plaza is the largest Tang-themed cultural square in Asia and has become a cultural tourist attraction for not only local people to relax themselves but also for travelers to feel the charm of the ancient capital.
