Xian has a long and interesting history, even more so than most other Chinese cities. It served as the capital for no less than twelve ancient dynasties that ruled from there for thousands of years. The city is of course best known for the world famous Terracotta warriors - more than seven thousand very life-like statues of soldiers originally created to guard over the tomb of the Emperor Qin Shihuang. There is a lot more to Xian than just the warriors though and you will be ill advised to try and visit (and understand) everything on your own. Rather take a tour with a guide that knows his history. In this article we will advise you about Xian Tours - what to look out for before you choose a particular one.

Visitors to Xian often come only for one or two day and visit the most famous sites, but Xian has so many more amazing sites to offer visitors. The lesser known, but no less spectacular, Small Wild Goose Pagoda Scenic Area is surrounded around the ancient Small Wild Goose Pagoda. The ancient pagoda is small than the Big Wild Goose Pagoda and more dainty in appearance. The area around the pagoda has been turned into a beautiful garden-like scenic area which includes the Xian History Museum. Since it is not as famous as the bigger pagoda, it has fewer visitors and is more peaceful. The 8 Immortals Temple located outside the ancient city wall is an amazing Taoist Temple. The temple tucked away in a residential area is exquisitely designed. It is filled with gardens, ancient buildings, and Taoist monks and nuns. The area is permeated with a feeling of peace and is a wonderful way to spend a few hours while visiting Xian. The Academy Gate and Cultural Street is one of the best shopping places in the whole of China. It is not large, or flashy like many shopping streets, but its atmosphere and the items it offers are simply wonderful. The Culture Street which begins at the Academy Gate is lined with Ming and Qing Dynasty shops. The shops offer beautiful high quality arts and crafts. Visitors can watch artisans creating paint brushes by hand. Other shops have people carving Xun, an ancient Chinese musical instrument. There are shops that deal in paintings, fans, crafts, and jade and jewelry. It is an amazing place to find unique Chinese items.

Gluten Free Vacation Days with Family Members

Let me share one of my positive experience regarding Gluten Free Resort Vacations  at Mana Island resort.

We all family members were together at there, had a wonderful vacation, Mana Island resort is the best. There are activities to keep one busy all day long and into the night.

If you or a family member has celiac disease, gluten intolerance or gluten sensitivity you may wonder if it is safe to vacation or honeymoon at an all-inclusive resort such as Sandals or Beaches.

Eating while you're travelling and healthy cooking is often a stressful time even with normal circumstances, now imagine how much more stressful it is for a celiac or gluten-sensitive person.

To get ready for a big trip, especially to a location that doesn't cater to the gluten-free lifestyle, can be challenging. One idea people use who may be getting ready for a trip, is to place your order in advance from somewhere you know and can trust and have it delivered to the location you will be visiting.

There are companies that do on line ordering for example that are very accommodating and can even ship some foods Internationally. By having a delivery of gluten-free food at your location when you arrive gives you one less thing to worry about. Less packing and no extra luggage - no worries! Your food isn't going to be getting crushed, apprehended at customs or tossed out at an airport.

Picture how much easier arriving at your resort on the beach would be knowing you have a big box of gluten-free goodies waiting for you there already, it's as simple as placing your order online.

Bring only the gluten-free items that you won't be able to find at local grocery stores. (A little research online before packing can save you from lugging a bunch of stuff on your travels that you can simply purchase once you've arrived at your destination.) Items such as your favorite bread, pasta and snack bars will get you a long way towards a G-Free vacation without taking up too much space.

Plan as many "whole food" meals as you can. Then you won't have to worry about carrying or purchasing specialty GF items. Plan simple meals using naturally gluten-free foods.

• Fresh fruits and vegetables

• Meats

• Whole GF Grains: Rice, Quinoa
