Tour Highlights
Terracotta Army Museum
Here, the funeral objects of clay warriors and horses as well as bronze chariots are used to protect the mausoleum of Emperor Qinshihuang (BC259-BC201) and remain his rule in his afterlife. They were sculptured on the basis of real life and seem ready to set out for the battle. Each terracotta warrior has different facial expression and manner and you can figure out their armed branches from their clothing and postures. They perfectly reappeared the puissant period when Emperor Qinshihuang conquered the other six kingdoms and established the first centralized feudal dynasty in Chinese history.

    We stayed in Xi’an on New Year's Day, 2020, and had a happy trip around Xi’an. The Terracotta Warriors were an amazing museum where we saw many clay warriors and horses as well as the bronze chariots. Our guide had a wonderful English accent and explained the facts about the Terracotta Warriors clearly. The whole trip was smooth and very grateful for arranging such an excellent tour schedule.

    Thanks for the wonderful travel experience and unforgettable memory. From the first meeting with our guide Koko to the farewell at the airport, the Xi’an day tour was exceptional. The Terracotta Army was really awesome. We also tasted so many local snacks including Chinses Hamburger, Pita Bread Soaked in Lamb Soup and Spicy Soup. We’d like to have more days in Xi’an.

    It allowed too many visitors there, it was packed in the scenic spots, which made me much more tired… The guide was knowledgeable and patient and provided a lot of help for me. Thanks a lot!
