More time in Beijing or trip to Xian?

Jump to last reply

Have 10 days and want to visit Beijing and Shanghai. Not sure if we should include Xian? Muslim quarter appeals to me and the terracotta warriors seem ok but I wouldnt mind missing them. Is Xian worth the 5 hour train ride or is it better just to stay in Beijing and see more there? Seems like we will need at least 5 days to see Beijing and not feel rushed. Also, how many days would you recommend we spend in Shanghai? It seems like there is more to do in Beijing. We aren't big museum people we may go to 1 in 10 days. We like the open air markets, street food, sights, and temples. Will definitely go to Great Wall and possibly Tanzhe temple? Any guidance is much appreciated!
