Xi'an Extension

See the Terracotta Warriors and Encounter Imperial China in This Ancient Silk Road City
No travel adventure to China is complete without a visit to the ancient imperial city of Xi'an and the Terracotta Army. One of the earliest regions to be settled in China, Xi'an was where the first emperor, Qin Shihuang (3rd century BC), united the disparate tribes of the vast realm to launch one of the world's most extraordinary civilizations. The capital of numerous dynasties, the walled city and its narrow streets harken back to a time when Xi'an served as a bustling center of cultural, religious and economic interactions between the East and West at the eastern end of the Silk Road. The city's thriving Muslim Quarter with its lively market and Grand Mosque is a highlight, while outside the city, the famous Terracotta Warriors still stand guard over Qin Shihuang's tomb. 

Trip Highlights

  • See the Terracotta Army—8,000 stone soldiers, 100 chariots and 600 horses—built to guard the tomb of the first emperor to unite China in the third century BC
  • Explore Xi'an's ancient Muslim Quarter, a cultural fusion of Central Asian and Chinese traditions at the eastern end of the Silk Road
  • Enjoy a classic Chinese dumpling banquet at one of Xi'an's most famous dumpling houses—Xi'an is where the popular dish was invented!
