My fiance and I have decided to try and use public transportation to see the sites in Xi'an during our 3 day trip next week and I had a few questions that I'm hoping someone can answer.
1) We are staying at Xian Warriors Youth Hostel, No.98 Bei Ma Dao Xiang(Inside Yu Xiang Men), City Midst District, Xian, China 710002--we were thinking of taking the airport express to the Bell Tower and doing some exploring of this area (Big and Small Goose Pagoda, bell tower, etc.) before going to our hotel as our flight gets into Xi'an at 9:30 am. What would be the best option for us to get from the Bell Tower area to our hotel...I've looked at maps and looks like possibly ~5 km on foot?? I also know that bus 501 and 506 have a stop close to the area of our hotel but I do not know where these routes go.
2) We would like to catch bus 306 to the TC soldiers and again were thinking about walking from the hotel, do you think this is feasible, or would we be better off taking a taxi or bus??
3) What is the best way to get to Banpo Museum?? Is there a bus, subway or train that goes close to this area??
