10 Fun Things to do in Xian – China

by Rosemarie John on December 9, 2014

My trip to China wasn't the usual stopover in Beijing or Shanghai. Instead, it was to a city that was as important as Rome was in its heydays! Xi'an, the starting point of the ancient Silk Road is the largest overland trade route linking China to Central Asia and Europe and is filled with historical sites, beautiful tales and intriguing food. Here are my picks of 10 fun things to do in Xian.

10. Shop

Shopping in Xian

The Muslim Quarter is a great place to shop for unique items – food, clothes, curios. My favourite was their freshly ground course chilli!


Tigerair flies to Xi’an from Singapore three times a week. It is an awesome route to take when flying out of Australia as Tigerconnect, offers hassle-free transfer facility at Changi Airport. This allowed me to transit seamlessly and it can allows passengers access to more destinations on their network. Visit tigerair.com for more details.


Grand Park Xi’an – Located just two minutes from the metro station, this lovely hotel is also a five minute walk from the City Walls, a twenty minute walk to the Bell Tower and an hour’s drive to the famed site of the Army of Terracotta Warriors and Horses. The hotel offers complimentary Wi-Fi and has a lovely breakfast spread offering both Chinese and Western cuisine. Address: 12 Xi Duan, Huan Cheng South Road, Xian 710068, Shaanxi, China. Visit their official website for rates.
