In Chinese history from Ming Dynasty, each city had a bell tower and a drum tower. The bell was sounded at dawn and the drum at dusk each day in ancient time, a means of telling time. Xian was not exception. The Bell Tower and Drum Tower of Xi'an date back to the Ming dynasty (1368-1644). The two are located in the center of the Xian city connecting the four roads from east, south, west and north within the city wall. Atop the Bell Tower you will have a panoramic view of the Xian City; atop the Drum Tower you will have a bird's eye view of the Muslim Quarters. 

Then  heading to the Army of Terra Cotta Warriors.It was discovered in 1974 by peasants digging a well.The awesome ranks of life-size pottery figures,modeled from yellow clay,were made to guard the tomb of Qin Shi Huang,despotic ruuler who unified China over 2,200 years ago.Excavations yielded three pits and over 7,000 soldiers,archers,and horses.Each warrior,originally colored with pigment and holding a weapon,has indiidually crafted expression.The museum and the mausoleum are listed the world's cultural legacies as the UNESCO.
The Terracotta Army is a form of funerary art buried with the Emperor of Qin (Shi Huangdi) in 209-210 BC (his reign over Qin was from 247 BC to 221 BC and unified China from 221 BC to the end of his life in 210 BC). Their purpose was to help rule another empire with Shi Huang Di in the afterlife. Consequently, they are also sometimes referred to as "Qin's Armies". Some people think that the army was also built for protection.

The Terracotta Army was discovered in March 1974 by local farmers drilling a water well to the east of Lishan (Mount Li). Mount Li is also where the material to make the terracotta warriors originated. In addition to the warriors, an entire man-made necropolis for the emperor has been excavated.

Have lunch in a local Chinese restaurantvisit

the Great Mosque. The famous Great Mosque is located in the Muslim Area. For the tourists coming here, the bazaar in the Muslim area is most attractive with a wide area of stalls selling everything. The shopping is  very cheap and some unusual items we will seldom see anywhere else in China. The Great Mosque in Xian is one of the oldest, largest and best-preserved Islamic mosques in China
A mosque was first built on this site on Hua Jue Lane as early as the 700s AD, but the current complex was laid out during the Ming Dynasty in the late 14th century. Tradition says the Great Mosque was founded by the naval admiral Cheng Ho, son of a prestigious Muslim family who became famous for expelling pirates from the China Sea.
At the time the mosque was just outside the Ming city walls in a neighborhood for foreigners. Today the neighborhood and the mosque are part of the city. Most of the present buildings were rebuilt in the 17th and 18th centuries.
 
Then heading to the City Wall in Xian.In 1370,during the reign of hongwu,the first Ming emperor,these walls were built on the foundations of the Tang imperial palace,using rammed earth,quicklime,and glutinous rice extract.The 39-ft(12m) high bastions have bases up to 59 ft(18 m)thick
The Ancient City Wall of Xi'an is a rigorous and integrated military defense system comprising city moat, drawbridge, various observation towers, battlements, turrets, parapets and crenels. Since constructed from Sui and Tang dynasties about 1400 years ago, the wall has experienced series of alteration and finalized the current layout, with the Changle Gate (East Gate), the Yongning Gate (South Gate), the Anding Gate (West Gate) and the Anyuan Gate (North Gate) being the four main city gate

Explore the famous Muslim Quarter(if time permit)
Actually secluded lanes and corner are where the taste surprise is always hidden and patient exploration is required. The zigzagging local-frequent Xi Yangshi and Bei Guangji Jie (Chinese: 北广济街) lanes are local-frequented and stall-clustered and harbor many authentic taste gems. These lanes have more leisurely life touch: white-skullcap stall owners chitchatting, the white-mustache senior sunbathing in the rocking chair, kids teasing the puppies, etc.

After the tour,our guide in Xi'an will drop you off at Xi'an train station for the overnight train Z20 (19:30 - next day 08:18 am) or T44 (19:00 - next day 8:12) for Beijing.
