Starting 4 April 2024, travellers will have the opportunity to explore the capital of Shaanxi Province and the oldest surviving capital of China, home to thousands of years of Chinese heritage and history. From the Terracotta warriors of China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, to the Great Wild Goose Pagoda and the Muslim Quarter, with its beautiful Ming style Grand Mosque, Xi’An offers a diverse range of experiences for everyone. It’s also the starting point of the Silk Road, with excellent air and high speed rail connections to Kashgar and Urumqi.
