Xian - City at the End of the Silk Road

Located in Shaanxi province, Xian is a city of architectural and culinary treasures. It is a meeting point of culture, a treasury of historic artifacts and a shopper's delight. From the iconic architecture of the Bell and Drum Towers, the labyrinth of market stalls in the Muslim quarter, and with a proximity to the Terracotta Warriors, there is plenty to see and explore in this amazing city.
