Xian in 24 hours

We stayed for two days (excluding what we call ‘on-our-way-days’) in Xian. One day we visited the impressive Terracotta Army, the other day we explored the city itself.

Inspiration for a 24-hour trip in Xian:

Morning

Rent a bike and cycle the ancient City Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The fortifications are one of the oldest and best-preserved Chinese city walls. Don’t underestimate its length: 14km. You can also hike half of it; from the North Gate to the South Gate for example.

Lunch

The Hui Quarter is the Chinese Muslim neighborhood. It’s the perfect place for souvenir shopping and finger licking lunch. There are tons of street food stalls that offer njummie traditional food.

Afternoon

Go to see the Bell Tower and the Drum Tower, stroll the four main streets of Xian (North, East, South and West Street), and get lost in small side streets to discover hidden gems.

Evening

Toast on the beautiful day in Bar Street and spend the night in our top pick place to stay.

What would you suggest? Or what are you planning to do in Xian?
