Video of our March-2018 short trip to Xi’an 西安 (Shaanxi Province, 陕西省, China).
Xi’an is the capital of Shaanxi Province, and one of the oldest cities in China. Due to its extremely favourable natural defensive characteristic, Xi’an was chosen as the capital for a number of dynasties in Chinese history. Thus, ensuring its importance in both cultural and political aspects.
Additionally, Xi’an is the starting point of the Silk Road and site of the world renowned Terracotta Army. The popular Huashan (of the “World’s Most Dangerous Hiking Trail” fame) is located 120km to the east.
Many of the popular tourist attractions in Xi’an is located within (or near) the compact Xi’an ancient city. The ancient city is completely enclosed by the well-preserved 14km-long city wall, which has wide walkways on the top of the wall. In fact, renting bicycles and cycling on the city wall is a highly popular activity amongst tourist.
