Xian, also known as Ancient Capital Xian, used to be the centre of political, cultural and economic centre during the Great Tang Dynasty. It is a one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China. The other three are Beijing, Nanjing and Luoyang. If you travel to China, this is a city should be on your list.
My father did his university degree in Xian, but I never visit Xian until 2014 summer. Although I only spent two days there, I had a very good impression about Xian, and wish I could revisit it someday in the future.
Similar to Beijing, Xian is a place full of culture and history, but it just feels different.
How can I describe this? If look them as two good looking guys, both look fit and attractive, but one is proud and hard to please, another is friendly and easy going. That is how Xian makes me feel, easy, comfortable and approachable :)
For most foreigners, Xian is most well-known for its TerraCotta Warriors. But in fact, it has much more to offer.
Here are my experiences for Xian food travel. Click the post title and photo will open a new page.
