Why we suggest this tour itinerary?

In this Itinerary, tourists will visit Xian, one of the oldest cities in China and the capital of Shaanxi Province now. It became the cultural and political centre of China in the 11th century BC with the founding of the Zhou dynasty. Since then, Xi’an was the capital for 13 dynasties controlling whole or part of China, including several of the most important dynasties in Chinese history, such as Western Zhou, Qin, Western Han, Sui, and Tang, totally for 1077 years of capital history. Xi’an is the home to the Terracotta Army of Emperor Qin Shi Huang and along with Luoyang city, Xian is also the starting point of the Silk Road in the East. It is the most significant influencing ancient capital in China and one of the birthplace of the civilization of China. So far, Xian enjoys equal fame with Athens, Cairo and Rome as one of the four major ancient civilization capitals in the world. Touring in Xian is actually walking through the 6,000-year history of China. If you are interested in ancient Chinese civilization, culture and history, your Xian tour is a recipe to satisfaction. 


Originally there are traditionally 4 historical capitals of China, collectively referred to as the "Four Great Ancient Capitals of China". The four are Beijing, Nanjing, Luoyang and Xian (Changan) which were the capital of the whole China at various periods. In a sense, they represent the peak of the achievement of ancient Chinese culture. As more new archaeological evidence began to be uncovered since the 1930s, other historical capitals have been included in the list. The phrase "Seven Ancient Capitals of China" now includes – in addition to the earlier four – Kaifeng (added in the 1920s), Hangzhou (added in the 1930s), and Anyang (added after 1988). In 2004, the China Ancient Capital Society officially included Zhengzhou as the eighth historical capital in light of new archaeological findings dating from the early Shang dynasty.
