Questions & Answers on Pictures of Relics of Sui & Tang Dynasties
Asked by Mr.Anthony | Apr. 01, 2009 09:16Reply

My 2 friends and I are visting Xi'an from Shanghai via train. We will leave Shanghai on the night of April 17 (friday) and will leave Xi'an on the following night - we only have the whole day of April 18 to tour the city.

Is there any agency offering day-tour for a group of 3?
We plan to visit the terra cotta warriors museum, city wall, big wild goose pagoda, bell tower and other places of interests if time permits.

Also, would you know if we can buy round trip tickets (Shanghai-Xi'an-Shanghai) in the Shanghai ticketing office? If no, how can we buy in advance at the Xi'an ticketing office just to make sure we will be able to go back to Shanghai at night.

thanks and looking forward to your recommendations!

As for the tour, I think you could go to these places you metioned with the help of a travel agency. I found some good one or two-day's itinerary on this website, you may ask them for help.

As for the ticket, not sure whether you could book a return ticket in Shanghai. But an idea, once you found a reliable travel agency, you may ask them to book tickets for you, just a little sum of service charge is required. Good luck!
