Xian is one of the oldest cities in China. It is one of the birthplaces of the Ancient Chinese Civilization in the Yellow River Basin area. As the starting point of the Silk Road and home to the famous Terracotta Warriors of the Qin Dynasty, the city has won a reputation all over the world.

Despite its vital place as one of the major gateways from inland China to Tibet, Xian is not a city that all trains have to pass. Currently, there are only two trains (Guangzhou-Lhasa Train Z264 and Shanghai-Lhasa Train Z164) that will make a stopover in Xian en route for Tibet.  As obvious as one could see, Xian-Lhasa train is more an integral part of the Guangzhou-Lhasa railway and Shanghai-Lhasa railway than an independent railway route.
