About Shaanxi Province
Shaanxi is Chinese history. "If you want to see China of 100 years ago, visit Shanghai; China of 500 years ago, Beijing; China of 2000 years ago, Xi'an." This old saying tells the unique position of this legendary region. Shaanxi is a chronology of history. It played a pivotal role in the early years of China and practically it was here that Chinese empire started.
The main reason why tourists decide to visit Shaanxi is naturally the incredible Army of Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an, but it turns out that the region has more to offer: the elusive remains of ancient city walls, the Huaqing Hot Spring, the two pagodas of Wild Goose, Shaanxi History Museum, the eighteen imperial Tombs of Nineteen Tang emperors, the roaring Hukou Waterfall of the Yellow River, the breath-taking precipitous Mount Hua, and the spectacular Tang Dynasty Music and Dance Show. All these give only a little clue to this once sumptuous area. Look further in Shaanxi and start a new adventure in this old world. If you can, begin knowing China over here.
