Our tour guide and driver will pick you up from your downtown hotel in the morning. Today’s adventure begins with Small Wild Goose Pagoda, one of the two Buddhist temples built in the Tang Dynasty. The pagoda sits in an ancient Chinese style garden. You will also have chance to visit Xian Museum to appreciate plenty of precious cultural relics.
Next we will move on to North Square of Big Wild Goose Pagoda. The pagoda was originally built to hold the sutras and Buddha statues that Xuanzang brought back to China from India. Now there is a big garden around the pagoda where people can have a nice walk.
After lunch, we’ll head to Xian Ancient City Wall, the most completely preserved and largest city wall in China. It was built for military defense in ancient times. The rectangular City Wall is 13.7 kilometers in circumference and has 5,984 crenels and 98 watchtowers for the troops to stay in. Visitors can optionally ride bikes on the top of the city wall to see the city from a unique angle.
After that, you will visit the Bell Tower and Drum Tower Square. The Bell Tower and Drum Tower of Xi’an date back to the Ming dynasty (1368-1644). The two are located in the center of the Xian city connecting the four roads from east, south, west and north within the City Wall.
The last stop is the Muslim Quarter, a hub of the Muslim community in Xian City. Many special local products and snacks could be found along this street. You can enjoy preserved meat, casserole, various noodles, etc. At the end of the tour, your guide and driver will escort you back to your hotel.
