About Xi'an City:
Nestled deep in China's heartland you'll find the ancient city of Xi'an, literally translated as `Western Peace'. The capital of China during the period of 618 - 907 AD, Xi'an served as China's gateway city during its 'golden age' under the Tang Dynasty.
Xi'an is still a very traditional Chinese city of approximately 7 million people but also boasts many sites of historical and cultural interest. The city is now experiencing rapid development - that said, when you live in Xi'an you really feel you are living in China every day.
A walk down any street and you will see sights which provoke a second glance - from elderly men playing majiang and women practicing tai ji (tai chi) in the morning, to the sound of traditional music coming from a nearby park. Everyday throngs of children with red neckerchiefs pass you on their way to school and, of course, you never walk along a deserted pavement in this city. Although probably best known for the Army of Terracotta Warriors, there are many points of historical interest within and outside the city.
As one of a small group of foreigners living here, you will quite often hear surprised locals exclaim "laowai" (meaning foreigner). They're not being rude: they're just not used to seeing a Western face walking down the street!
