I certainly didn't do all of Xi'an, but high up that list is Mount Huashan.

It'll take you about an hour to get there by bus, but it's unbelievable up there.

The WOMEN

So many dynasties were located there and the Emperors brought the most beautiful gene pool from all over China.

Of course you need to visit the terracotta warriors. Just like the Great Wall they might not be the most exciting, but how could you skip them.

To me the terracotta Warriors are not amazing! you should go an see the muslim quarter and take a ride with Felix on a vintage sidecar motorbike from the 1930s in the countryside. You will see temples, meet cave dwellers, eat on a farm..An unforgettable experience!

Terracotta warriors boring and to many people. Muslim Quarter you will get ripped off. Bell/Drum towers good for the view not worth paying the money inside. Big goose pagoda great park area and at night the fountain show is pretty good. Small goose pagoda not worth the money. Xian is a tourist trap for those people willing not to really explore this great city. 

My suggestion check out Daqin pagoda old christian church outside of Xian good for history. The mountains just south of the city has some hidden temples and great scenery. The Gaoxin area (CBD) has some good hideaway places as well.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
