  Xian – Hancheng – Dang Village – Confucius Temple
In the morning, your guide and driver will pick you up at your hotel and drive for around 3 hours to Hangcheng. Hancheng City is about 230 kilometers (143 miles) northeast of Xian. With a history of over 3,000 years, it is one of the most famous ancient cities in China. Our trip today will take us to the most famous attractions in Hancheng.

Our first stop is Dang Village. It was built in 1331 and is the largest, oldest, and best preserved ancient village in Shaanxi. Walking along the narrow alleys of the village, you will see traditional houses built with gray bricks and black tiles, and decorated with delicate carvings on the wood, stones, and bricks, revealing the village's glorious past. The village also has its own towers, private schools, temples, archways, and watchtowers. Wandering around the alley and imagining how the ancient people lived, it is an excellent place to escape the modern city and feel the tranquil atmosphere.

Lunch is left for your own exploration. Your guide will surely give you advice and assistance for you to taste authentic local cuisine and snacks. Then continue our visit to Hancheng Confucius Temple. This Confucian Temple is the third largest of its kind in China, and has 22 buildings and 78 rooms in total. Built in the Yuan Dynasty (1279 – 1368), the temple has retained the original style, even though it has been renovated many times. Nowadays, the exquisite sculptures, the flagstone courtyard and the ancient wooden architectures can still be appreciated.

After visiting these interesting places and experiencing the local people's life, your guide and driver will escort you back to Xi’an and take you to your hotel.
