Terracotta warriors

Jin and I visited the terracotta warriors site on our first full day in Xi'an. It is about an hour outside of the city and the only good way to get there is by taxi. We hired a driver for the full day, and he also drove us to the Huaqing Hot Springs, which will be the subject of the next entry.

The terracotta warriors were discovered by local farmers in the mid-70s who ...

City Life

Today we visited the Goose Pagoda in Xian, a 700 year old structure which is now the centrepiece for a modern park with cafes, shops and a fantastic fountain display. We then finished off the day by lying about our ages, hiring bikes and cycling round the city walls. We have now spent a week in China living in the big cities, are beginning to get the hang of things and are enjoying ourselves. Neither the hotel in Beijing or here in Xian have been noisy which was a surprise ...

8th Wonder Of The World?

... China to visit Xi'an. Our hostel here has been fantastic, the best we have stayed in! For its atmosphere, lovely common area where everyone gathers. The rooms were spotless and warm! Plenty of activities to join in with! Overall a 5 out of 5 for this place which probably explains its award or the best hostel in Asia in 2011. And 6th best in the world! It is relatively cheap costing around 5 GBP each per night for a double room!

Much Love,

I would particularly recommend the duck, pumpkin and chicken varieties, though they were all good. Better than the fried rice and stodgy noodles we had eaten earlier in the day. By day, we cycled along the 14km of the ...

Once Were Warriors

... this used to be farmland??? We headed to pit 1 first which is the massive one. There are loads in here and loads to still be put back together and excavated. They only have 20 archaeologists working on the site at one time so it seems like it is going to be quite some years before they are going to be anywhere near finished. After all that excitement it was time to stop for a very westernised lunch at the in-house restaurant. The good thing was that we got to see ...
