Xian'an District includes Xianning's central urban area (thus, it usually is not marked separately from Xianning on less detailed maps) and nearby villages.

Transportation[edit]

Sights[edit]

Underground...

At the "Underground Project 131" site, some 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) southeast of Xianning urban area, tourists can visit a system of underground tunnels that were built in 1969-71 to accommodate national military headquarters in the case of a war, but never used.[1]
