A visit to china can be very dissapointing for someone who expects to see one of the world's oldest civilizations. Most cities like guangzhou, shanghai, shenzen, etc have almost no historical sights to see. Xian is the one exception. The terracotta warriors are incredible - a real insight into ancient china. The sight of hundreds of lifelike warriors ready for battle is awe inspiring. If there is one place you visit in china, make it xian. And also cover the mausolem of emperor quin which is nearby. Together, it will be the best day you will spend in china.
