TravelPod Member ReviewsLintong No.1 Reception House Xi'an
Today we visited the Terra Cotta Army along with Geoffrey. At first we found the soldiers very interesting but quickly, we lost interest. We think that it wasn't worth coming for because it's just soldiers and along with Jordan's attitude towards China, it wasn't very helpful. Although Geoffrey seemed very interested and keen, we weren't feeling the same. Wouldn't come back here again honestly. Tour guide was great.

Travel Blogs from Xi'an
We arrived in Xi'an by plane from Beijing and, after a quick lunch, headed for the Terracotta Warrior Museum on the other side of Xi'an.

It was sort of like a talent/model competition for guys. I was surprised when one of the contestants asked us to watch him perform and cheer for him.

Made it to Xi'an after the long night of tumbling around the 3rd class train carriage to see the friendly face of my good friend Jeremy who had been living in Xi'an for the past year. Mistimed it slightly as I arrived just after his holiday and so he was teaching for most of the time I was there, but we did get the evenings together at least. It was also kind of nice to crash at his flat and watch a few films, ahem. In four days, I probably should have managed to ...
A School Day in the Eyes of Megan Rafferty
Breakfast was nothing special today: just a normal day eating junk food from the school store. After our breakfast break in which most people attempted sleeping in the newly darkened VIP room (we discovered that we could close the blinds), we all headed to music class. The teacher was an amazing and very eloquent singer! She sounded just like, if not better ...
... saunter back to the hostal. The good thing about stayng within the city walls is that it's easy to get your bearings especially with the huge bell tower sat at the centre so it's easy to go off wandering in any direction for a bit snoop around without losing track of where you are or how to get back. This time I meandered through what must be the art quarter which was really interesting. A good few narrow little streets with artists sat out doing various ...
