XiAn was pretty warm and dry in April. Shaanxi yellow earth mixed with air due to dry climate in April. Still it is described as the best time to visit, as Shaanxi is ussually either extremely hot or bitterly cold. Well, just like Wuhan so to say. XiAn has potential value of history and XiAn was China’s political capital. We spent 2-3 days there to see the most spectacular and essential sights. One of the top list around the city east of XiAn is the Terracotta Warriors.
A short visit to Huaqing hotspring on the way to the Terracota warriors. This park was once the favoured retreat of emperors anc concubines during the Tang dinasty. The most famous bather of all was Yang Guifei, a concubine often blamed for bringing the rebellion in 756.
Outside the city wall, XiAn famous landmark is the Big Goose Pagoda (Dayan ta). This pagoda dominates the surrounding modern buildings, restaurant and malls.
Eating at Muslim Quarter is a great deal. Many common dishes in XiAn are offered here. The famous of all is the Yangrou paomo, a soup dish with crumbling flat loaf bread and adding noodles, mutton and broth.
