Teach English in Xi’an
Xi’an is the second most visited city in China, mainly due to its status as home of the Terracotta Warriors and it being the former capital of China for 13 dynasties.
Together with Athens, Rome and Cairo, Xian is one of the most famous of the ancient cities; rich in a history that spans thousands of years. Xi’an, meaning ‘West Peace’ is the capital of Shaanxi province and is conveniently located in the center of China. The Terracotta Army is located in the satellite tombs to the mausoleum of Emperor Qin Shihuang. The site was discovered in March 1974 when farmers found many broken pottery figures while sinking a well in Xianyang village.
In the evening, the city illuminates providing a striking setting for the myriad of traditional Chinese restaurants, bright modern shopping malls, coffee shops and bars which make for an entertaining night out.
