Travelling to Xi`an for a day, arriving via flight from Beijing in the morning and flying to Shanghai the next morning, staying overnight in Xi`an. We are primarily coming to see the Terracotta Warriors, but would like to have some time to wander around, see the Muslim area, etc.
Our flight arrives at 10am. Would it be advisable to hire a driver to take us direct from the airport to see the warriors, then go check into our hotel with our luggage, or is that inviting problems with theft or loss of luggage? The thought is this would save some time.
Our other option is to go check-in to our hotel, or at least drop our luggage and then go to the warriors.
Thoughts and best method for this appreciated - thanks!
