Xian is one of the great Ancient capitals of China. And with a history dating back over two thousand years it gives way to myriad discoveries.

City Wall

Xian’s city wall is one of the longest and largest ancient military defensive systems in the world and the most complete in China. Your tour will start at one of the impressive gates and you’ll climb up to where you can stroll past decorative lanterns and flags. 

Muslim Quarter

Xian was at the eastern end of the fabled Silk Road and the Islamic influence lives on in the bustling Muslim Quarter, which is crammed with small shops and food stalls. The market is a great place to sample Muslim food and offers the chance to buy some souvenirs.
