Xi'an is likely to be on many people's bucket list. A city more than 2000 years old, still thriving and more importantly revealing her past like the pages of a history book to all who care to look & explore. A must visit city!
We stayed at the Citadines Gaoxin apartment hotel. It is housed in a small , but refurbished building in the commercial heart of the city. Spacious apartment with clean rooms and a fully fitted kitchen. Staff speak English with fair proficiency, are polite & very helpful.
For non-Chinese speaking guests, it is best to request hotel staff to help arrange for sight-seeing trips. The local dialect is hard to understand and exploring without a guide may be confusing; not forgetting time wasted in searching for locations etc.
The highlight of anyone's visit to Xi'an must be to see the Terra Cotta warriors & the Hanling tombs. The attractions are mind boggling and spread out over vast areas. Prepare for lots of walking. Tourist are met at debarkation from their coaches by a fleet of wheel chairs manned by enterprising locals. Anything can be arranged for a fee....but do agree on price before you sit in that wheelchair! In a way, this 'service' enables even the physically challenged to see this 8th wonder of the world.
