Birthplace of Chinese Civilization
Historians often describe Xi'an, capital city for over a dozen dynasties, as the birthplace of Chinese civilization. Over 3,000 years old, the city contains more historic ruins and museums than any visitor can hope to explore in a single trip to Xi'an. Formerly the eastern terminus of the ancient Silk Road, today the city offers a pleasant cosmopolitan atmosphere and easy access to some of China's most important tourist attractions. Among these, the World Heritage Site containing a giant army of terracotta warriors takes the cake, drawing over 2 million tourists each year. Other notable attractions in Xi'an include palaces, parks, mausoleums, and the remains of ancient city walls and gates.
