Chinaxiantour collects some essential tips for a Xian tour from the angle of an insider with more than 15 years’ experience. 1. Xian has so many attraction sites worthy of seeing, how could I arrange a good tour among those dazzling places?
  • Think about your days available in Xian
1 full day or a half-day’s flyover: If you have very limited time, you are suggested to visit the most highlight attractions of this old city—Terracotta Warriors or Terracotta Warriors plus 1-2 downtown attractions, like City Wall, Big Wild Goose Pagoda, Bell & Drum Tower and Muslim Quarter, etc. 2-3 days: if you have 2-3 days in Xian, then you are allowed to explore those essential sites here—one day Terracotta Warriors and downtown sightseeing tour adding 1-2 attractions among them: Mountain Huashan, Hanyangling Museum, Qianling Mausoleum or Famen Temple and so on. 4 days and more: if you are going to stay in Xian more than 4 days, you could do an in-depth exploration—take the 2-3 essential tour plus a Xian side tour, such as Luoyang Tour or Pinggyao tour, Hukou Waterfall tour and Skiing tour in winter.
  • Put your interest in account
Whether your interest is cared about or not is important for a wonderful trip experience for people. If you are enchanted by the long history and deep culture of this ancient city,  you’d better not to miss Terracotta Warriors, City Wall, Big Wild Goose Pagoda, Banpo Museum, Huaqing Hot Spring, Hanyangling Museum, Famen Temple, Qianling Tomb……If you are crazy about food, go to Muslim Quarter, Shuyuanmen Street, Defachang Dumpling Restaurant……If you like to simply appreciate some natural scenery, then you are suggested to Mountain Huashan, Hukou Waterfall, Foping Panda Valley, Taibaishan Mountain……anyway, pick out what you are interested in from Xian Attractions you will have a lucid tour plan.
  • Take your inter-city transportation into consideration
Your transportation arriving at and departing Xian should be an element considered for a Xian tour plan. If you reach Xian by air before 3pm, it is possible for you to pay a visit to Hanyangling Tomb which is near from the airport and if before 12:00, Terracotta Warriors is also doable. If you arrive at Xian by train or high speed train before 1pm, Terracotta Warriors is available, and City Wall before 3pm, as for the Bell & Drum Tower Square, Muslim Quarter and Big Wild Goose Pagoda Square, they are valid anytime (but please note there would be little fun in the midnight there). It is the same for departing from Xian by the transport mentioned above. 2. I am excited to take a tour in Xian but my budget is limited, how can I do? It is a very good question because many Xian travel planners care about it a lot. In the past years, we have been asked such questions by many customers, and as an experienced insider we indeed know some practical tips to help low down the cost. See the following text:
  • If it is the first time for you to come to Xian and Terracotta Warriors definitely is the crucial site for you, you are suggested to take a group tour which will collect too many people there and the quality won’t decrease at all (2-13 people in avan) but the price will be very good. Check them in Xian Group Tours and you will be surprised by their price
  • If you want more private space and don’t want to share the tour with others, then you have the ways below to help lower your budget: 1) Just rent a guide & a car with driver to lead you explore the city with entrance tickets paid on spot by yourself and meals prepared by yourself, too. It is a popular option for more and more customer to visit Xian. If you can speak Chinese and know a lot about China’s history then you could only rent a car to show you those attractions (usually we suggest our customers to rent a guide together with the car as Xian is a historical city and people would hardly understand the background information of the sites without the professional explanation.
  • If you have strong basic life skill in a strange city, you could visit the attractions in downtown by yourselves with the public transportation, such as the Bell & Drum Tower Square, Muslim Quarter, City Wall, Big Wild Goose Pagoda and Shaanxi History Museum. Actually, it should not be a tough problem, because Xian has complete and advanced public transportation system, and meanwhile many young Chinese people could do the basic English communication and be happy to help you if you got problem there.
We are a Xian local travel agency with 15 years experience in this field, we try to and we could provide the best price for our customers because we have maintain good relationships with tourist resources suppliers. Of course, we know well how to help you operate a proper tour with good price. 3. Having more ideas than those highlight and essential Xian tours, what else can I do there? If you are a repeated visitor to Xian and look forward something fresh there, please find some tips from the following passage: There are many famous tourist cities which allows you do a Xian side tour in one day or 2 days, Like Luoyang, Pingyao, Northern Shaanxi, Hanzhong, and even Chengdu in Sichuan (the high-speed railway between Xian and Chengdu with 3 hours would open in late half of 2017). Here are some Xian side tours for your reference. 4. I am looking for a China tour and need suggestions about the transportation between the top cities like Beijing, Shanghai and Xian.
