      Baggage storage in Beijing West for 3 day trip to Xian

      by sandiegoserenity Online Now Jun 20, 2014 at 4:05 PM

      My son is going to Xian for three days, leaving on a soft sleeper from Beijing west, then returning on a G train back to beijing west. He has too much luggage to take with him! Is there a way to leave luggage in storage in the Beijing west station? If so, is it expensive, and is it secure? Thank you!

      Schedule: Day 1 arrive Xi'an in morning to get whole day in Xi'an area, Day 2 in Xi'an area (spend night in hostel), Day 3 all day in Xi'an area and then leave on late overnight train back to Beijing.

      Can that be done? Any suggestions for itinerary to do that? Thanks!

    • Miniature terracotta warriors

      by Carosstuff Online Now Sep 12, 2013 at 7:41 PM

      Last time I was in Xian we were taken to a wonderful museum outside the city ( possibly on the way to the airport) that showcased miniature terracotta warriors. They were behind glass still in the soil and also under us. We had to wear coverings over our shoes to walk on the glass pathway.
      Does anyone know the name of this museum and where it is?

      Anybody recently been in Xi'an and hired a taxi from the airport direct to the Museum and had the taxi wait and return to the airport? Price on this in RMB? Did you feel safe leaving your luggage with them? I only have 8 hours in Xi'an between flights so need some up-to-date info.

      I am planning to be in Xian with my six year old daughter at the end of August. Could anyone please tell me:

      1. If the temperature will be OK to walk around. I heard it's very hot in Xian in August

      2. I am planning to stay in Xian for 3 days, arriving 29th in the morning by train and leaving the evening of 31st by train. The Warriors is our must see. Should I plan it on the second day or the first day? What else would be interesting to a 6 year old ?

      3. I would like to stay in a hotel which is convenient to most tourist spots because my daughter may need to come back to the hotel for a break during the day. Is Bell hotel a good choice for that purpose?

      Thank you in advance for your reply!
