International Students visited Xi’an


From March 16 to March 17, international students visited Xi’an. 22 international students from Ukraine, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan, Turkmenistan, Laos, Ghana, Nigeria, Yemen, and Pakistan participated in the activity. As a part of cultural education, this cultural visit was organized by School of International Education.

Xi’an is one of the origins of world civilization with as long as more than 3000 years history and 13 dynasties set up their capitals here. As early as the Western Han period (207B.C. — 25A.D.), the "Silk Road", which started from Xi’an, connected the East with the West, and promoted the exchange of economics and culture. During the blooming Tang Dynasty (618A.D.-907A.D.), Xi’an was the world’s trade center, which set up trade relations with eastern Asia, southern Asia, and Eastern Europe.

International students visited some important sites and relics in this city, such as The Terracotta Horses and Warriors of the Qin Emperor, one of the eight wonders of the world, Shan’xi History Museum, the Bell Tower, the Drum Tower and the Big Wild Goose Pagoda.

The visit has significance to help the international students to understand Chinese history, traditions, and culture.
