Many of the main sights in the city are within the City Wall, a reconstructed version of the wall that marked the limits of the city in ancient times. You can walk or cycle round the wall, and take in the views of the city. At the center of Xi'an are the Bell and Drum Towers, originally built in the late 14th century and used to signal sunrise and sunset. Also within the walls, especially near the South Gate, are lots of restaurants and bars, as well as some nightclubs. Outside the wall, the best attraction is the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, which stands 210 feet tall, and you can get great city views from the top. No Xi'an vacation would be complete without visiting the city's premier attraction, the Army of Terracotta Warriors, a series of life-size clay figures preserved for over 2000 years before being unearthed in 1974. The army is located 25 miles out of town, and buses run there regularly. If you want to make your own way there, look at Xi'an rentals cars, but be aware that you'll need a Chinese driver's license, or you can hire a driver.
The biggest celebration on the calendar is Chinese New Year, which falls between January and March each year. The sky lights up with fireworks during this time, and the party can last an entire week. Hotels in Xi'an can fill up quickly during New Year, so be sure to book in advance.
