Xi’an (西安) – Huaqing Hot Spring (华清池) Posted by on Jun 5, 2012 in Culture

Take a day trip out of Xi’an to the historical site of Mt. Lishan and the Huaqing Hot Springs in this short video. This mountain resort provided R&R for countless Chinese Emperors, with plenty of natural hot springs and beautiful scenery. For more modern history, you can see the place where Chiang Kai-shek hid from the Communists during the Xi’an Incident of 1936. On your way out to see the Terra Cotta Warriors, this is definitely a place worth visiting.
