Shaanxi Province is one of the most important cradles of ancient Chinese civilization. As far back as one million years ago, some of China's earliest inhabitants lived in this region, and began spreading their culture along the life-sustaining Yellow River.
Throughout the province's long
history, there are 13 dynasties who established capitals here,
including the Zhou, the Qin, the Han, and the Tang. Because of this
rich history, cultural relics and ruins are plentiful, and may be
found preserved both above- and underground. So Shaanxi is called
the 'authentic history museum' in China.
The Hukou waterfalls on Yellow River, the second biggest
one in China, is very overbearing and magnificent. And Mt. Lishan
and the nearby Huaqing Hot Springs are very attractive. Their
beautiful legends will bring you into a moving love story between
emperor Xuanyuan and a beauty named Yang Guifei.
