Hey all, I will be going to Xi'an on Sunday morning and I will be there for a total of five days but I will only really have Monday to myself and the night time. Does anyone have any wonderful ideas about what I can do in the evenings and for a full day on Monday? I will actually be in 'Shaanxi' if that helps?

Hi Paul,

Spend a few hours going around the Terracotta Soldiers, you can go by yourself - you don't need to join a tour - just jump on the green bus from the train station, it costs 7 Yuan and it drops you right outside the complex that house the warriors. Entrance is 65 Yuan but when we were there in November, Pit 2 was closed for renovation and they had re-housed some of the relics in the museum.

If you want to meet othe foreigners I can recommend hanging out at the Bell Tower hostel (right in the centre of the city near the Bell Tower!). They do really good chicken curries and sell super cheap beer. A nice atmosphere and some pool tables too!
