    Stop At: Farmers' Caves, Xi'an China

    Visit a local family living in a Traditional Cave and learn about the local farmer’s lives. It’s hard to picture someone actually living in a cave, but people do indeed. In fact, it was pretty popular back just a few decades ago in Shaanxi Province. Believe or not, the cave dwelling was comfortable. It’s very cool in the hot summer and warm in the winter. Some people in the northern part of Shaanxi province still live in such a way today.

    Set out to the Hanyangling Museum, also called Jingdi’s tomb. It is located at Zhangjiawan Village, about 25 kilometers north of Xian City. It is a joint tomb of Liu Qi, a notable emperor of the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-220AD), and his empress, Empress Wang. It was built in the year 153 AD, now it covers an area of 20 square kilometers. This mausoleum which combines modern technology, ancient civilization, historical culture and garden scenery is the largest museum in China.

    Hi, although I am not Kathy, I will try to answer. I don’t think they care if it is two kr four people. You pay for a car and a guide.
