Day 1 Xi’an Airport / Train Station Pick-up; Visit City Wall & Muslim Quarter
In the morning, please take a flight or high speed train from Beijing to Xi'an by yourself and your guide will pick you up at Xi’an airport or train station based on your schedule. Then you will be escorted to downtown Xi’an to start this 2 days trip immediately.

We will visit Xi'an City Wall first, which is the best-persevered city wall in China, and you can hardly find another time-honored but unbroken one in the whole country. The city wall you see nowadays can be dated back to the Ming Dynasty (1368 – 1644 AD), lying in the center of downtown and shaped rectangular with a total length of 13.74 kilometers (8.5 miles). It is an amazing thing to stroll around the 600 years old City Wall for a glimpse of the past ancient city grandeur. In addition to seeing the ancient ramparts, you can also witness various city views within and outside the City Wall. Cycling along the wall is a good choice but you need to pay for the bike rental. Your guide will be ready to help you with that.

The next stop is the Muslim Quarter, a famous local snack street as well as the Muslim community that you cannot miss in Xi'an. Here you can taste a variety of Muslim food and local specialties like Paomo (Pita Bread with Beef/Mutton Soup), Jing Gao (Steamed Sticky Rice Cake with Nuts), Cold Noodles, and various beef and mutton BBQ. Sauntering down the flagstone streets lined with food stalls and unique specialty shops, you will be spoiled by various snack choices and experience local atmosphere to the fullest.

Today's trip ends here, and your guide will escort you to your self-booked hotel.

Travel Tips:
The transportation from Beijing to Xi'an is quite convenient. There are many flights between the two cities every day, taking about 2 hours for a single trip. The flight is faster, but the price is also higher. The high speed train generally takes 4 to 6 hours, economical and comfortable. The earliest train departs from Beijing at 07:00 and arrives in Xi'an at 11:21. If you feel too early, you can take the fastest train departing at 9:55 and arriving at 14:05. If you don't mind an overnight train, you can also leave Beijing the night before and arrive in Xi'an the next morning. In this way, you will have more time to visit in Xi'an.
Day 2 Visit Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, Great Tang All Day Mall, Terracotta Warriors; See-off
This morning, your guide will pick you up at your hotel at the appointed time. Afterward, you will be guided to the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, which is famous for its antiquity and grand architecture. The ancient Buddhist pagoda was built for translating Buddhist texts 1,300 years ago, surrounded by a vast pedestrian area where you can take a relaxing stroll while listening to the legendary stories about the pagoda. After that, we will head to the nearby Great Tang All Day Mall, which is the longest and most prosperous pedestrian street in Xi’an, featuring different types of Tang Dynasty sculptures, themed shops and sometimes you may also happen to meet brilliant performances. This place is perfect to take in the Tang Dynasty culture in all aspects.

After that, we will drive to the highlight of this journey, Terracotta Army. The amazing world wonder boasts a large number of terracotta soldiers of different postures, large horses and chariots, and some ancient bronze weapons. Terracotta Army is a part of the mausoleum of the first emperor in Chinese history, and the unearthed 3 pits are extremely grand and surprising. An incredible fact is that the underground invincible army over 2,200 years ago was colored originally, but faded at lightning speed after being unearthed. According to research, their faces were generally painted pink, however, there is a terracotta warrior with a green face. What a weird thing! It is speculated that it was a special soldier in the field army, or the guy responsible for pre-war sacrifice to the god. Following your professional guide, you may have your own idea.

Your 2-day Xi’an tour from Beijing just ends here and your guide will see you off at the airport or railway station for your onward flight or train. Wish you a pleasant journey!
