Xi’an is not only a prosperous modern city, but a land with an incredible depth of history. As the capital city of Shaanxi province, it holds a key position in the fertile plain between the highland plateau of the north and the Qinling Mountains to the south. Xi’an held the position of capital of eleven dynasties spanning across more than 2,000 years. More importantly, Xi’an was the capital of three of the most important dynasties in Chinese history: the Qian Dynasty, the Han Dynasty, and the Tang Dynasty. The Tang Dynasty, which is often considered the Chinese Renaissance, was the time during which Marco Polo visited China. Along with Rome and Constantinople, this city played a vital role in bridging the gap between East and West.

Xi’an contains many important sites and relics, from its City Wall, which is the most complete surviving wall in all of China, to the Terracotta Army of Qin Emperor, whose excruciating detail on each of over 8,000 individual Terracotta soldier is widely regarded as the eighth wonder of the world.
