China travel guide

China - Shaanxi (Shanxi) (Chapter)

14th Edition May 2015

This is the Shaanxi (Shǎnxī) chapter from Lonely Planet’s China guidebook.

Shaanxi is where it all started for China. As the heartland of the Qin dynasty, whose warrior emperor united much of China for the first time, Shaanxi was the cradle of Chinese civilisation. Later on, Xī’ān was the beginning and end of the Silk Road and a buzzing, cosmopolitan capital long before anyone had heard of Běijīng.

  • maps
  • get lost wandering the backstreets of Xī’ān’s ancient Muslim Quarter
  • transport
  • check out the dugouts where Mao Zedong lived in Yán’ān and the red tourists who flock to see it
  • restaurants & accommodation

Coverage includes: Xī’ān & around, Huà Shān, Hánchéng, Yán’ān, Yúlín, and Mǐzhǐ.
