China Study Tour Optional Extension

Tour to Xian

Extend your cross-cultural learning experience with an optional extension tour in Xian.

Xian, the capital of Shanxi Province, is famous for its long history: It is on the site of the ancient city Chang An, the largest city in the world at the dawn of the Christian era. It is home to the tomb of China's first emperor and the renowned terra cotta soldiers.

If you choose to extend your tour, you'll travel from Shanghai to Xian, attend a briefing by the chief curator of the Xian Museum, and dine with local experts. You'll visit the terra cotta soldiers and the Wild Goose Pagoda of the late Tang Dynasty. Also tour the redevelopment area, the city wall, and downtown.
