I specifically went to Xian to see the Terracotta Army and what a wonderful experience to be able say "been there, done that"! I had a wonderful tour by a very experienced Guide, Tom, From Dragon tours. The hotel was perfectly adequate for a four-star, but my only complaint is that the carpets along the passages to the rooms were filthy dirty. Also, I understand that porn is a criminal offence in China, yet advertising cards were pushed under my door during the night. Security is therefore not so tight. Breakfast was perfectly adequate with a good variety to choose from, wester and Chinese food.
