It's a double bill with this Xi'an tour - markets AND Terracotta Warriors?! You must've done something really good to deserve this.
Dive head first into the fascinating history and delicious, local flavours of charming Xi’an on this tour that reveals commercial hot spots, culinary secrets, and legends of history (you know who we're talking about).
In the morning, join a friendly local guide and travel to one of Xi'an’s busiest morning produce markets, where you'll spend some time seeing what locals stock up on during their daily shop. Learn about some of the key ingredients used in Chinese cooking, and take the opportunity to shop for some tasty local snacks for later in the day. You could also kick start the day with a traditional Xi'an breakfast, which includes soy milk and pancakes or steamed buns, all available at the market.
Next up, it's time for the main event! Travel to the site of the famous Terracotta Warriors, one of the greatest archeological finds of the past century and the pride of Xi’an. Marvel at the burial pits filled with life-sized chariots, horses and warriors, all buried to ensure the emperor has safe passage to the afterlife.
Take time to explore, take photos and learn about the historical significance of this remarkable site before hopping into a private vehicle to head to the nearby town of Lintong.
In Lintong, we'll feast on a flavoursome lunch of local specialties, where you can choose from regional dishes such as roujiamo or soup noodles. Your local guide can give you the low down of what's what, and make recommendations as well.
Full of yummy food and historical amazingness, we'll head back to central Xi'an, where your tour will end and your guide will set you free with suggestions for futher adventures and explorations around the city.
