Shaanxi province plays an integral part in Chinese history, being the political, economic and cultural capital of 14 ancient dynasties, including the famous Zhou, Qin, Han and Tang dynasties. Xi’an, formerly known as Chang ’an, is one of the four major ancient civilisation capitals of the world. The historical buildings and natural scenic spots of Xi’an make it an ideal destination for both local and international tourists, helping to boost tourism for the Shaanxi province.
