Famen Temple and Yuanjiacun Village Tour
We'll pick you up at 8 am from your hotel in Xi'an and set off on a one-and-a-half hour trip to the village of Yuanjiacun, located on the side of a mountain.
When we arrive in the centre of this small town, we'll start off with a walking tour through its picturesque streets. We'll capture the true essence of Chinese culture as well stroll among its charming food stores. We'll also get the chance to watch the Qin Opera Show and even learn how to grind soybeans to make tofu! What an incredible cultural experience!
Afterwards we'll give you an hour of free time to get some lunch. With our batteries recharged, we'll meet up again to visit a tea house.
In the next part of the tour we'll leave Yuanjiacun behind and head to the Famen Temple, one of the most most important religious monuments in the Shaanxi region and home to one of the Buddha relics! We'll go on a two-hour guided tour of the site, including the pagoda, which had to be rebuilt after it was destroyed by storms.
