Xian Travel FAQs & Tips

1. How many days should I stay in Xian, one, two or three days?

3 days Xian tour is strongly recommended. Within 3 days, you can explore the best things to do in Xian in a relaxing and comfortable way. 2 days’ trip is also ok, but we advise you get to Xian by an early morning flight and departure from Xian by a flight on the late afternoon.

2. Am I allowed to take photos of the Terracotta Warriors?

Yes, you are allowed to take pictures but not to touch them.

3. Can I take public bus to the Terracotta Warriors?

Yes, you can take public bus No.914 from the Railway Station to the Terracotta Warriors.

4. Can I go to Mount Hua from the Xianyang Airport?

We don’t suggest you to go to Mount Hua straightly from the Airport because there is no bus and taxi wouldn’t drive you. We suggest you book a pick-up service from an agent, or you can take shuttle bus to the downtown area of Xian, then take bus to the Mount Hua.

It is about 40km away from the Airport to the central area of Xian city. (1 hour of driving)
