Question Have You Ever Been to Xian

I am very interest in the six ancient capitals in China. I have been to five other ancient capitals: Luoyang, Kaifeng, Beijing, Nanjing and Hangzhou. During this holiday, I arrived in Xian and finished my plan to travel in all the six famous ancient capitals. Steeping on the land of Xian, immediately, I feel I have entered into the time tunnel and run back to the mysterious Silk Road and saw the extravagance of royal family.

Located in Shanxi province, Xian is a very popular tourist destination for its abundant historical relics and cultural heritages. As one of the six ancient capitals, it was capitals of 12 dynasties early or late in the past. Every dynasty has left its characteristics and treasures on this land, making Xian is history museum of Chinese ancient society.

My trip began from the world famous Terracotta Warriors and Horses. I am amazed at the skillful figures and canít help to be moved by the wisdom of ancient Chinese. Having read many stories and poems about the empress Yang, I am very interested in the beautiful empress. Therefore, the Huaqing Hot Spring where Yang had bath is a must-visited for me. I also had a tour to the Big Wild Goose Pagoda where stores the Buddhist scripts which obtained from India. In China, there is classical novel, Journey to the West, describing rough courses of getting the scripts. I have heard the musical fountain near the Big Wild Goose Pagoda; of course, I am not willing to miss the spectacular scenery. As night coming, I squash into the crowd and fascinate by the scenery.

I also had a visit to the Ancient Wall. During that trip, I seized the opportunity to climb the Huanshan Mountain which is reputed for its steepness and straightness.

Have you ever been to Xian? Which attraction of Xian do you like best? Why not write down your interesting experience and share with others who like Xian.
