Originally called Chang'an, Xian is a treasure trove of China's history. Not only is this fascinating city the final resting place of the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang and the Terracotta Warriors; it is also the eastern terminus of the famed Silk Road, an important trade route which brought Buddhism, Islam and the western world to the Middle Kingdom.  
 
There is no better city or destination in China which can provide a wider range of artefacts, historical relics and ancient sites than Xian. The former capital of China for 13 dynasties, Xian is a hotbed for historical and ancient political insight into one of the most fascinating and oldest civilisations in the world. It was the capital city of the First Emperor of China who unified the seven Warring States. It is here that you can explore the emperor’s treasured legacy at the museum of the Terracotta Warriors, possibly the greatest archaeological discovery of the 20th century.
 
In addition, Xian’s city wall is one of the longest and largest ancient military defensive systems in the world and the most complete in China. At the terminus of the Silk Road, you’ll find where the Islamic influence lives on in the bustling Muslim Quarter, which is home to a variety of mosques with the Great Mosque being the most famous.
