It's the start of the Silk Road, the largest city in central China and an ancient capital that saw the birth of various dynasties... a Chinese course in Xi'an is an enriching experience that will transport you to a magical world.
An endless amount of ruins and historic sites await, starting with its 7,000 terracotta warriors, horses and military carriages. These statues of soldiers made to scale in great detail represent the Qin army. Dating all the way back to the 3rd century, the statues weren't discovered until 1974. Xi'an, for some the cradle of Chinese civilisation, is also a city that's becoming more and more modern. Explore its markets, sample local delicacies or try your hand at sport in the great outdoors.
