While I'm organizing my information for the exciting Tibet trip earlier this month. I would like to share my mini trip (2 days) in Xi'an with my travel buddy (J.Wong)!
It's like having a Chinese history lesson staying in this city. Xi'an is one of the oldest city in China, and was the capital of several important dynasties in Chinese history. J.Wong and I are not too knowledgable about Chinese history, and we were raised by TVB drama series, so we were using actor names to recall our memories throughout the trip! =P (Fun fun times! We were so into the characters, we even re-watched some episodes on the plane from HK to Xi'an: 尋秦記 - A Step into the Past is CLASSIC!)
Xi'an is such a beautiful city, that I felt like I was walking into a movie setting while walking on the street, seeing all the historical buildings! (Especially during night time when the light up all the buildings)
We only stayed for 2 days, so we decided to join a half day local tour to visit Huaqing Palace and the famous Terracotta Army. (will share in my next post)
And! LUCKLY, we had some spared time to walk around and enjoyed sunset on the city wall.
The views are just stunning!
