What you can expect

Seek out an ancient army of dusty clay warriors standing guard, dive into the history of a vibrant Muslim neighborhood, stroll along centuries-old city walls, and tuck into delicious dumplings at a beloved local restaurant on this day trip in Xi'an with a convenient flight straight from Shanghai.

Greet your private driver outside your hotel in Shanghai and head to the airport to catch a quick flight to Xi'an. Board a comfortable shuttle when you arrive and head straight to the site of the Terracotta Army, a collection of over 8,000 soldiers buried to protect the tomb of China's first emperor. Explore this incredible archaeological wonder and check out immersive exhibits at the nearby museum before you recharge with a delightful dumpling lunch at De Fa Chang restaurant.

Head to the Old City for the afternoon, where you can meander along the top of a robust city wall and listen as your guide explains why the famous fortifications of Xi'an were once necessary. Over the wall, lose yourself in the winding streets of the Muslim Quarter, browsing the wares at bazaars or simply snapping photos of the well-preserved architecture.

Before you head back to the airport, stop off at the Big Wild Goose Pagoda for up-close looks at classic Chinese architecture. Learn more about this Buddhist sanctuary from your knowledgeable guide and then hop back in your car bound for the airport, Shanghai, and your final ride back to your hotel.
