Called Chang'an in ancient times, Xian is one of the birthplaces of the ancient civilization in the Yellow River Basin area of the country. During Xian's 3,100 year development, 13 dynasties such as Western Zhou (11th century BC - 771 BC), Qin (221 BC - 206 BC), Western Han (206 BC - 24 AD) and Tang (618 - 907) placed their capitals here.

In ancient times, as the beginning of the Silk Road, Xian was one of the transport junctions in China. Now, it is the axis from the east to the west China even to the countries in the western Asia. The extensive transportation system consisting of aviation, trains and buses connect Xian with other major cities all around China. The urban transportation of Xian has been somewhat frustrating in recent years because of the subway construction. Subway line 2 will be in operation in 2011. Several other lines are also under construction or in the planning process. For now the buses and taxis can take you to around the city. 在古代,最为丝绸之路的起点,西安是中国重要的交通路口之一。现在,西安是中国东西部地区的中轴线,甚至涉及到西亚地区的国家。由广泛的运输系统组成,火车和公交连接西安和中国其他的主要城市,但是西安现在的交通有点堵塞,是由于西安这几年在进行地铁建设。地铁2号线将在2011年运作,其他的线路还在计划和施工阶段,现在公交和出租可以带你到西安的任何地方。 Transportation     By Bicycle in Xi'an

Traditional downtown Xian refers to the area encircled by the city wall, this has now been expanded to encompass the area within the second ring road (Er' huan Lu). The Bell Tower is the geographical center of Xian and the four main streets are respectively Dong Dajie, Xi Dajie, Nan Dajie and Bei Dajie which are also the main commercial streets. Xiao Zhai, the busiest commercial area is in the southern part of the city and is popular with both youths and students since many universities are located here. Shuyuan Men and the still under construction Luoma Shi are must-visit pedestrian streets in the city. Xian is also famous for its quantity of colleges throughout China. The old campuses of many colleges and universities are massed in the southern suburb of Xian, but most have established new campuses in far southern suburb - Chang'an District due to the lack of space within the city. 传统的西安市中心是城墙以内的地区,现在已经扩展到二环路以内了。中国是西安地理位置的中心,紧邻这四条主要的商业街道,东大街、西大街、南大街和北大街。小寨,南部地区最忙的商业地区,自从许多大学建在这里,这个地方在年轻人和学生群体之间很受欢迎。书院门和骡马市是来这个城市必须的参观的街道,西安也以它的高等学府在中国著称,许多搞笑的老校区已经在南部修建其新校区,但是许多都是建在距离西安市中心较远的南郊--长安区,是由于这座城市没有足够的空间。
