Sunset in Xi’an. ⠀ This city has been nothing short of incredible. More than five thousand years old (!), the city, historically known as Chang’an, is one of the oldest cities in China, not to mention, all of human civilisation. The cradle of China, it is the seat of power from which the first Emperor, Qin Shihuang, united China. ⠀ From the ancient Bell Tower marking the very centre of the city, to the legendary Hua Shan, where 金庸 wrote about his tales of might and valour, and to the breathtakingly immense Terracotta Army condemned to subservience to Emperor Qin Shihuang for all eternity, Xi’an has filled me with amazement at every turn. ⠀ 西安，好棒！
