Xian, China: Spend the day ruin-hopping between Emperor Qin's unearthed terra-cotta armies and the Tang Emperor's Wild Goose Pagoda. When the city buzz gets too loud, escape to Hua Shan (two hours to the west), arguably the most beautiful peak of China's Five Sacred Mountains.
Big Wild Goose Pagoda (Da Yan Ta 大雁塔) Giant Wild Goose Pagoda or Big Wild Goose Pagoda, is a Buddhist pagoda located in southern Xi'an, Shaanxi province, China. We visited a nearby Tang Dynasty Museum (just a short walk) and learned about Chinese painting. Loved the hospitality and insight to this beautiful art.
