The Muslim Quarter Xi’an has one of the world’s oldest Muslim communities, founded some 1,300 years ago by traders of Persian and Arab origin who traveled along the Silk Road and settled in the then capital of the Tang dynasty (618-907AD). Known as Hui, their descendants are deeply integrated in local life, but preserve separate cultural and culinary practices that fuse Central Asian and Chinese traditions.

Xi’an Ancient City Wall, the most well-preserved ancient rampart in China, encloses the historical heart of the old city. With a circumference of 14 kilometers (8.5 miles) and a height ranging 12-15 meters (40-50 feet), this massive fortification was built to guard the old town of Xi’an. Big Wild Goose Pagoda. The pagoda reflects Xi’an’s importance as the center of Buddhist development in ancient China, when it was situated at the eastern edge of the Silk Road. Qinqiang opera show  will be arranged following the visiting ,

Hanyangling Mausoleum

This excavation was begun in 1990 and is part of the vast funerary complex of the Emperor Han Jing Di. In contrast to the Terracotta Warriors where we viewed row after row of soldiers buried along with horse-drawn chariots, various farm animals were unearthed at the Han Dynasty Hanyang Tomb, indicative of the prosperous and peaceful social-political climate of the times

Culture experience Hands on activates           

Pottery Clay activity-After the visit to the massive and silent army of the Terracotta Warriors, we will then visit a manufacturing shop to see how the replicas are made and try your hand at making your own replica pottery figurines or artwork.

Chinese rod puppets are puppets that are manipulated by three rods as shown in the picture. The puppets may be small or even life-size. Performers used to wear special traditional theatric robes with big sleeves so that the rods were somewhat hidden, but modern performers tend to let their hands and rods show. Rod puppetry is still a little popular in China.

Outdoor activities

Simulating Archaeological Dig Experience -you will have chance to experience the archaeological dig in a simulation pit. The shape and structure of the simulating pits are exactly same as the real pits of Hanyang Tomb.  The expert of the museum will lead an introduction about the archaeological excavation, including how to use the tools and the general steps of excavations.
