TOP5 Indoor Activities

Article By XIANEASE

With November comes the unofficially official holiday we refer to around the Xianease offices as “Heating Day”—the day Xi’an’s radiators grumble back to life, warming our hearths and imbuing the city with the mystical, magical Fog of Progress™. You may be tempted to hide away in the comfort of your home, but for those willing to venture out, there’s plenty of fun stuff waiting for you to do.

01 Indoor Rock Climbing

While clambering up an artificial crag isn’t quite as exciting as climbing actual rock, heading to a climbing gym during the off-season is a great way to either try out this incredible sport, or keep your skills sharp for when better climes return.

02 DIY CRAFTS

There’s something satisfying about making something with your own two hands, and there is no shortage of opportunities to do a little DIY in the city. Spin the pottery wheel, do some painting, make a cake—whatever it is, someone’s got a studio you can try it out in.

03 ArcherY

If you’ve been training for the Hunger Games, you don’t have to stop for the winter. There are a couple of archery ranges in town where, for a small fee, you can nock and let loose a few arrows.

04 VIDEO GAMES

Consoles and computer games are commonplace these days, but there’s still something fun about heading to an arcade and spending a few tokens. Or, if you’re looking for a more modern twist, there are a few VR gaming places hidden around the city to immerse yourself in a whole new world of games (provided you don’t get motion sick that easily)
