China has an excellent sleeper train system, and Kat and Tom made full use of it, catching a total of 5 within the 3 weeks we were there! The first was to Xi’an, mainly to see the Terracotta Warriors, which are a one hour bus ride away from the city itself, and simple to organise on your own – you definitely don’t need to do a tour – we weren’t making the same mistake again after the Great Wall. Hiring bikes to cycle along the old city walls was an excellent introduction to the city, and helped blow out the lungs from the ever present smog.
