Xian is the capital of Shaanxi province, located in the southern part of the Guanzhong Plain. With the Qinling Mountains to the north and the Weihe River to the south.

The cultural and historical significance of the area, as well as the abundant relics and sites.

 The Museum of Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses is praised as 'the eighth major miracle of the world.
