Welcome to Xi'an, the capital of Shaanxi Province and ancient capital of China. From the City Wall of Xi'an, to the Army of Terracotta Warriors and Horses, this city is perhaps the best place to learn about ancient Chinese civilization and culture. In addition to an exciting history lesson, you'll also get to see modern Xi'an (also written as Xian)—a town filled with gleaming skyscrapers, bustling traffic, and street vendors at every turn. Indeed, this blend of the old and the new charms visitors, and you'll be no exception. So, search for flights to Xian, which land just outside the city at Xi'an Xianyang International Airport (XIY).
Located just 17 miles from the city center, it's easy to reach the city from Xi'an Xianyang International Airport. There are two main transportation options: shuttle bus or taxi. Airport shuttle buses are much cheaper, typically operate from morning until night (with some late into the evening), and take you to various points in the city, including the Xi'an Railway Station and numerous popular hotels in Xian. These buses make pickups outside the arrivals level at each terminal. There are also taxi lines outside each arrivals level, and this is the quicker option to get to your destination downtown. If you desire more privacy, you can also arrange a private van or car before you fly to Xian or in the arrivals hall after you land.
While in Xi'an, find delicious foods in the Muslim Quarter, take in views of the skyline from the Drum Tower, and see the Tomb of Emperor Jingdi. That should have you excited to look for Xian flights.
