Detailed itinerary

Day 1 Night View

    Picked up from your hotel at 18:00, you will commence this amazing night tour.

    Your first sight is the City Wall. Built in the Sui Dynasty, Xian’s Ancient City Wall has endured a lot up and downs. It was always there to protect the Xianese whenever there was an invasion. Nowadays, it has retired from its protection duty, yet still functions as a cultural symbol of Xian. At night when all lights are on, the common-like City Wall becomes lively again.

    After visiting the historical city wall, you will drive to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. While visiting the Pagoda you should not miss the Fountain Show at the largest fountain square in Asia, which is located in the north square of the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. The glamorous and sensual show is worth the trip and draws crowds from their other activities. Once the music begins, the water spout spreads instantly like a blooming flower. The shape changes with the music, making people feel like singing. After the fountain show, the Big Wild Goose Pagoda becomes the major scene again. You will see middle-aged locals dancing, singing, playing, practicing calligraphy or shuttlecock, etc. Some young people may prefer to visit the gift shops, ghost houses or restaurants.

    Adjacent to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda, you will find the Tang Dynasty Sleepless City. Right opposite the great Monk Xuan Zang, you will see the sculpture of Jian Zhen, another famous monk in the Tang Dynasty. Instead of travelling to India for the Buddhist scriptures like Xuan Zang, Jian Zhen is known for making 6 attempts to reach Japan to spread Buddhism and promote cultural communication between the two nations. Moving on from Jian Zhen’s sculpture, you will encounter other celebrities like physicians, poets, calligraphers, and emperors. With an introduction from your guide, you will have a thorough understanding of the prosperous Tang Dynasty.

    You will be transferred back to your hotel to absorb your experiences.
