Please note the following:

Our big bags and instruments (larger) will be leaving Beijing with the tour company ahead of the group and will be waiting at our hotel when we get into Xi’an.  SNA tours requests that all big bags have locks (supplied and installed by each traveler) put on the main compartments – big instruments should be locked as well if possible during the overnight train to Xi’an.
