Xian Introduction

Xi’an, the capital city of Shaanxi Province, is located just in the heart of China. It was named as Chang’an meaning eternal peace and safe in ancient times. Experiencing thousand year’s splendor, Xi’an has become an important cradle of orient civilization.
Xi’an is located in the heart of the Central Plain of Shaanxi along the middle reaches of the Yellow River. Eight rivers wind across the city with continuous mountains encircled. Being the heart of fertile Guanzhong Central Plain, Xi’an boasts vast framing land and the locals never worry about food. This advanced geography endows Xi’an the condition to be capital of many dynasties in Chinese history.
Xi’an is reputed as one of the four famous ancient capitals of the world, together with Rome, Athens and Istanbul. It is now a world-famous tourist city because of its profound history and rich culture. Firstly it is the start point of the famous Silk Road, which makes it begin to receive the foreign cultures from the very early times. This makes Xi’an an international metropolis since the ancient times. Secondly it served as the capital city for 13 dynasties; the number outruns that of any other ancient cities in China. It is the capital of Zhou (1046BC-256BC), Qin (221BC-207BC), Han (202BC-263AD) and Tang (618AD-907AD) dynasties when ancient China enjoyed it reputation as the most powerful country in the world for its extreme prosperity. Much of its culture and history has been preserved and passed down to today because of its somewhat isolated location in the mid-west of the country. Here you can find abundant historical relics that have been discovered or excavated from the inside and around the city. The most famous ones are the Eighth Wonder of the World Terra-cotta Warriors, the imperial palace Huaqing Hot Springs, the best preserved City Wall, The Buddhism holly place Big Wild Goose Pagoda, and the collection of historic relics Shaanxi History Museum, the primary clan community Banpo Museum 6,000 years ago and a Han Dynasty emperor’ mausoleum Hanyangling Museum. In addition, the mountains and rivers form beautiful landscapes for Xi’an. Mt. Hua is one of the five most famous mountains in China for its steepness and rare scenery. There are many other forest parks surrounding the city, providing good holiday resort for the citizens.
The historical relics write the mystery and splendor for Xi’an, while the rich local culture adds Xi’an with more charm. Now, Xi’an, just as what it did in the great Tang Dynasty, is accepting all foreign cultures and welcoming friends from all over the world.
