The city of Xi'an, capital of Shaanxi Province, was the eastern terminus of the Silk Road, along which cultural and economic exchanges flowed between east and west for centuries. It served as the imperial capital for over a millennium, and retains a number of important historical attractions, foremost of which is the extraordinary Terracotta Army, a UNESCO World Heritage site. See the rust-red silhouettes of warriors and horses that make up the Terracotta Army and learn about how they stand guard over the tomb of Emperor Qin Shihuang. And don’t miss a trip to the Louguantai Giant Panda Breeding
Centre where you can catch a glimpse of these gentle giants (and China’s national animal) in the flesh. Xi'an & the Terracotta Army holidays are also all about culture, so spend an afternoon exploring Xi’an’s Great Mosque and Muslin Quarter, taking in its bustling traders, deliciously indulgent sweet treats and authentic Chinese dumplings.
