Xian Trip 2016 - My flight and hotel itinerary

My flight itinerary for my Xian Trip. I booked my airfare and hotel via a package deal with Cathay Pacific. It was really worth, cost only S$1314 for two adults for airfare both ways and 4 nights hotel stay, which mean only S$657 per adult.

There's a direct flight via Tiger Airways from Singapore to Xian but the timing was real bad, reaching Xian around midnight and leaving Xian around 7 plus in the morning which means I need to leave Xian city around 4 plus am (1 hour ride from city to airport and at least 2 hours before departure for security check). Dont feel safe for two old folks (hubby 60 yrs old, me 56 years old), to travel from airport to Xian city in the middle of the night.

Our flight itinerary was taking Cathay Pacific from Singapore to HongKong, then transfer to Dragonair from Hongkong to Xian with a 2 hours in transit. We dont have problem taking connecting flights, but for those who are not used to take connecting flights best fly direct to Xian via Tigerair from Singapore.

Everything went smoothly for our onward flight but when we returned from Xian to Singapore, there's a delay in flight cause of bad weather, we were so afraid of missing our connecting flight and the next flight was 8 hours in transit, luckily we managed to catch our connecting flight just 5 mins before the plane was supposed to fly. As we were very late, there's staff waiting for us once we leave the plane, she quickly bring us via express lane to reach our boarding gate.(will come to this when I post the details in later post.)

Hi alicesg,

Looking forward to read your review! :)

Price seems pretty reasonable for a 5D4N trip. :)

Hi Tommy Green, will be a long story but very useful information from me for those who wish to DIY the tour, easy to navigate as long as avoid weekends and their public holidays otherwise seriously long queue to visit each attractions , consider they have a very huge population. So hope you have patience to wait for all the information cause I have another upcoming trip to Suzhou and Wuxi.
