ProSeen It

ConsDone It.

Are you one of those people who are bit fearful around airports? Some people are afraid of flying and deal with it by getting a lot drunk and a bit fighty. Some people are oddly specifically afraid of just the take off and landing, like there’s a better way if getting 36000 feet high. Some people...

“Xi'an - Beautiful madness”

published 07/11/2009

ProAuthentic and loads to do

ConsEasy to get lost

Xi'an is the capital of the Shaanxi province and one of China's major cities (being the country's capital at one point). It's an old city which hasn't developed quite as quickly as many other major cities. There is plenty to do in Xi'an and you're unlikely to find a day with nothing to do. I have...

Prohistory, food, atmosphere

Conscan be unfriendly and unhelpful

I was in Xi'an around 4 years ago as part of the Trans-Siberian trip that I did. It was the best place that we went to in China out of the three cities that we visited, certainly in terms of culture and only a marginal western influence. The city itself is the ancient capital and a fortress town...

ProRich Chinese Heritage & Great Food!

ConsDusty & Many People Smoke

If you are in search of Chinese heritage, Xian is a good place to visit. We start off by riding the bus from hong kong to shenzhen airport. There is a restaurant next to KFC. So we walked in to order some drinks before the flight took off. We were surprised to find out that the price for a cold...

“Terracotta Warriors”

published 11/07/2000

ProTerracotta Warriors, fast food, pagodas

ConsClimate, smell, taxis

Xi'an is the city nearest to the fabulous Terracotta Warriors, which are well worth a visit, as the scale of them is larger than you will have imagined. We took a tour out to see them and the other 'Eastern sights' which we booked at Mum's Home Cooking - one of the cafes listed in the LP. In...

And now in chinese people's heart, this...

We in Great Britain tend to call these the Terroccotta Army, the Chineses however call them the Terrocotta Soldiers and Horses. This is one sight that should not be missed when in China, if at all possible. You will probably have to stay in Xi'an. The Army is almost beyond words to describe, and...
