Xian hotels by shangri-la group

Hailed as one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China, Xian is undoubtedly one of the must places to visit in the country. You might find the number of world-famous sights to see here overwhelming but there is no need to worry as our hotels in Xian can drive you around the city and bring you to the tourist spots of your preference. There is the magnificent sight of Terracotta Warriors guarding the tomb of the First Qin Emperor and the Royal Tombs for Tang Emperor Gao Zong and his wife Empress Wu. Bell Tower and Tower Drum represent the way of life during the ancient times. The bell will be struck every morning while the big drum will be sounded for 10 minutes every night. Another highly recommended attraction to visit while in Xian is the Goose Pagodas where two of the finest remaining Buddhist sites in the city centre can be found.

Learning history is best done by going to museums and Xian has a couple that you can go to. Banpo Museum is the site of Neolithic village which shows replicas of houses giving a good idea of domestic life in the ancient past. Whereas Shaanxi History Museum, considered one of the best museums in China, exhibits Palaeolithic Lantian Man to New Stone Age settlements and relics of Sui, Tang, Ming and Qing Dynasty. You find each of the attractions interesting and you cannot wait to go to the next. However, the setting sun indicates that the city tour for the day is over. You head back to your accommodation in Xian and felt delighted to see the luxurious room waiting for you. This made you realize that staying at our hotel whether in Shangri-La Hotel Xian or Golden Flower Hotel elevates further the experience of your discovery of the city even more.
