    The main attraction in Xi'an are the Terra Cotta soldiers. I seem to remember going to the Big Goose Pagoda, walking on the city wall and seeing the Banpo prehistoric village. Xi'an has a Muslim quarter including a mosque, which we found interesting.

    The distance between Chengdu and Xi'an is quite large; flying would make sense.

    The main attraction for Xi'an is the Terra Cotta Warriors, which are located about 30 minutes outside of Xi'an. Another excellent thing to see in Xi'an is the Shaanxi History Museum, which has a very good collection of historical artifacts spanning a few thousand years of Chinese history. Other interesting things to see are the City Walls, the Large Wild Goose Pagoda, and the Muslim Quarter.

    1.5-2 days is better, especially if you want to see the museum and walk around the city. The Terra Cotta Warriors take 1/2 day, since they are so far out of the city.

    In xi'an, the two full days is better for visiting all main sites. it's about 500km distance between Chengdu to Xi'an , suggest you take flight, as the long time on the train, it's not good for travler.
