Beijing to Xian Day Trip by Flight

I have been to Beijing five times and have already visited the representative attractions like the Great Wall, Forbidden City, Summer Palace, etc. This time is a family journey and we decided to join the group of Beijing to Xian Tour at first.

Arrived at Beijing in the late afternoon, after dropping our luggage to the hotel we cannot wait to start our trip in Beijing. We went to the famous Longfusi Snack Street to enjoy the typical Beijing food. Various kinds of snacks! There are authentic Douzhi, focus ring, Luzhu, as well as all kinds of skewers here and there are also some typical Muslim restaurants. The taste of Douzhi is terrible! It smells terrible and just a small spoon I found it hard to drink. The cakes there is very delicious and all of them with very cheap prices.

Terra Cotta Warriors

In the early morning we were picked up from our hotel and transferred to the airport. After one and an half hours we got to Xian – another ancient capital city of ancient China. During the one day tour we visited the famous Terra Cotta Warriors and Ancient City Wall.
 
The Terra Cotta Warriors is the eight world wonders and it deserves the fame. In a vault of approximately 12,000 square meters and 5m underground lay some 8,000 terracotta infantry soldiers, archers, cavalrymen and chariots arranged in battle formation, ready to defend their emperor's immortal soul. The Terra Cotta Warriors show a high level of artistry with individualized facial expressions, hairstyles and clothing and were once brightly painted with black armor, colorful red scarves and green pants. As well as seeing, the tour guide explained to us the history and the story about Qin Dynasty.

After lunch we arrived at the ancient city wall of Xian. The tour guide told us that it is the most complete city wall survived in China as well as one of the largest ancient military defensive systems in the world. Around the old wall, there are jutting ramparts, sentry towers, corner towers, gate towers, battlements, and a series of city defensive fortifications that were scientifically and compactly laid out with very strong defense capability.

Then we took the late afternoon fight back to Beijing. Xian is a beautiful city too and I wish I could stay there for a few days to travel around.
