Xi'an, located in northwest China, is known all over the world as the home to the Terracotta Army and the eastern terminus of the Silk Road.
1. Daming Palace Site (大明宫国家遗址公园)
Daming Palace was the grandest and most significant palace complex in Xi'an (then Chang'an) during Tang Dynasty (618-907) where Tang emperors lived, dealt with state affairs and met with officials.
It has been rebuilt and opened to the public on October 1st, 2010. About two thirds of the park is free to get in. The other one third features cultural heritages and exhibition and needs admission fee.
Hanyuan Palace was the main palace, where grand ceremonies were held. It was also an important international exchange center. On every New Year's Day, ambassadors from various countries came and participated in the grand ceremonies held here. The majestic palace not only reflects Tang Dynasty's prosperity, but also represents the highest architectural level of that time. It is said that the Forbidden City in Beijing was built after the layout of Daming Palace.
2. Taste Xi'an cuisine (品尝西安美食)
cuisine is well known throughout China and visitors to Xi'an must not come and
go without tasting local snacks. Due to Xi'an's geographical location in the
center of China, its snacks adopted various materials from both north and south
China. Local cooking features frying, sauting, braising and frequent use of
salt, vinegar, capsicum and garlic. Among the great variety of local snacks,
Yang Rou Pao Mo (crumbled unleavened bread soaked in mutton stew), Rou Jia Mo
(Shaanxi Sandwich), and Cold Rice Noodles are the most popular.
A renowned place to try local snacks is Muslim Street beside the Drum Tower. It is also a great place to go bargain hunting for small items of aircrafts.
3. City Wall (城墙)
Xi'an's City Wall is one of the oldest and best preserved city walls in China and one of the largest ancient military defensive systems in the world.
Construction of the first city wall of Xi'an began in 194 BC and lasted for four years. The existing wall was started during the Ming Dynasty in 1370 and encircles 14 square kilometer of the city.
The City Wall has 18 gates, which are all open for tourists to ascend the wall. No matter which gate you choose to enter, you can tour the whole circle of the wall.
