Day 2 Xian
Attractions:Great Mosque, Bell Tower & Drum Tower Square, Hanyangling Museum
Our tour guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel in the morning and escort you to Great Mosque, a major place for religious activities of Muslims in Xi’an. This mosque, different from the mosques we usually see, is more like a traditional Chinese garden. For example, you will see Chinese pavilions with painted beams and engraved ridgepoles. Then visit the Bell and Drum Tower Square which sits at the center of the ancient city. Today’s last stop is Hanyangling Museum. The mausoleum is shared by the fourth emperor of the Western Han Dynasty, Jingdi and his empress, but they have their own graves. In the excavated satellite burial corridors you will see many mortuary objects. At the end of the tour, drive back to your hotel.
