Xian was one of the highlights of our trip. I highly recommend visiting the Shaanxi Museum and hiring a private guide/researcher to take you through the frescoes on the lower level. We were lucky to have Prof Wang available. He really explained and showed us the intricacies of each painting, interpreting them to better understand the culture at that time. It was amazing. Without someone to explain, you'll miss out on the best information. We also visited a local elementary school which was really enjoyable. I also suggest setting up a private noodle/dumpling hands-on workshop. The entire family had fun making our own noodles (which we sample during lunch)! Henry was an awesome tour guide who is very knowledgeable about Xian and China's history.
