First, visit the world-famous Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses, and follow your guide on a tour of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Then, visit the local Muslim Quarter, also called Islamic Street, for a guided walking tour of several city blocks where more than 20,000 Chinese Muslims reside. Head to Beiyuanmen Muslim Market for tasty snacks and souvenir stalls, and learn how Xi’an functioned for traders along the Silk Road since the 1st century BC.

If you book the one-way option, your tour concludes here. If you book the round-trip option, you’ll be driven to the airport for your flight back to Guangzhou. Upon landing, your private driver will transfer you back to your hotel in Guangzhou.
