Start your Xian tour by exploring Xian City Wall, the largest and best-preserved ancient city wall in China which once functioned as impenetrable military defenses enclosing the old capital. The Wall still goes all the way round the city with a moat funning peacefully outside it. With your guide, you can stroll along the walkway to admire its different sections and enjoy a panoramic view of its surroundings as well as stories ever happened here and learn from your guide how the defensive system used to work.

You will also get a chance to visit the nearby Small Wild Goose Pagoda and see how this ancient building over 1,300 years old survived two great earthquakes in Chinese history. Being built in 707 AD, this 15-tiered structure is one of the two most significant Buddhist pagodas in Xian and your guide will also tell you the differences of the two Wild Goose Pagodas.
