Terracotta Warriors (兵马俑)

The highlight of any Xi'an tour and one of the world's top archaeological finds, the Terracotta Warriors were accidentally unearthed by peasants in 1974. Here you'll see over 6,000 life-size Qin Dynasty-era terracotta soldiers, chariots and horses, an army designed to protect Qin Shihuang, China's first emperor, in the afterlife. This impressive site is located to the east of his tomb. It's one of the more recent culturally significant finds and this is a great chance to see them.

Xi'an City Wall (古城墙)

Dating from the Ming Dynasty, this is one of the finest and most well-preserved walls in China. In the past, a deep and wide moat, complete with drawbridges, served as a city protection barrier. Today, the moat has been filled and transformed into a park. The wall makes for a pleasant stroll where visitors can get a different perspective of the battlements and towers.

Bell Tower & Drum Tower (钟楼鼓楼)

Two of Xi'an's most important landmarks. In the past, an enormous bell in the Bell Tower used to announce the time of day for the city's residents. It also indicated early warning signals in case of attack by rival rulers. Nowadays, the top level of the tower serves as a platform from where panoramic views of the city can be seen. Featuring several drum shows daily, the Drum Tower is located near the Bell Tower and sits at the entrance to the city's Muslim Quarter.

Big Wild Goose Pagoda Square (大雁塔广场)

This 64-meter-high (210 ft) square pyramid structure was built in 652 AD during the Tang Dynasty to house Buddhist scriptures brought to China from India by a legendary monk called "Xuanzang" in Chinese. The pagoda's name was allegedly inspired by Journey to the West, a classic Chinese novel. Climb to the top of the pagoda (at your own expense) to see fabulous views of Xi'an.

Shaanxi History Museum (陕西博物馆)

Shaanxi History Museum showcases the highlights of these ancient civilizations, reproducing a grand complex of buildings in the Tang architectural style. Located in the suburbs south of Xi'an, northwest of the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, the Shaanxi History Museum opened its doors to the public in 1992, and features some 370,000 artifacts from Chinese prehistory as well as its imperial dynasties from the Qin onward.
