Let's follow blogger Celandine Xu's video clip for a look at Xi'an city and its foods.

As Mike Peters, an editor with China Daily, said in his article about Xi’an, “The Terracotta Warriors are a must-see whether you are Chinese or a foreigner, and attractions like the Big Goose Pagoda and the still-intact city walls are a treat to explore by foot or bicycle. But the thought of going to Xi'an makes me smile for a different reason: It makes me hungry."

Tips for your schedule in Xi’an:


I have been at least 12 times with groups from Nanjing by inexpensive flights


and from Beijing by overnight sleeper trains.


One has to visit the famous Terracotta Warriors museum. but it is not in the


center of Xi’an - it is an hour away by bus and needs at least two hours to visit the museum.


While there, it would be a shame to miss the HuaQing Hot Springs palace and

grounds not far from the museum.


So one needs to allow a morning and afternoon just for that. Xi'an cannot be a


one-day visit. Minimum two days, better three, which is how I did it with my


students.
