Tour Highlights
Hanyangling Museum
This museum was built on the base of the joint mausoleum of Emperor Jing and his empress which is the most complete necropolis of Han Dynasty (BC202 - 8) until now. The museum mainly consists of tombs of the emperor and empress, burial pits in the north and south, ceremonial buildings, graveyards of the satellite and criminal, and the Yangling town, which are precious materials to learn about the etiquette, emperors' life and burial customs of Han Dynasty.

Banpo Museum
It is a museum of historical relics of Yangshao culture in Neolithic Age which shows the social structure, production and life, economic pattern, marital status, social customs and habits, and art of the matriarchal clan society over 6,000 years ago. The museum mainly includes the basic exhibition hall of unearthed relics where you can see their production tools and living goods made of stone, bone and pottery clay, the preservation hall for the part of a primitive village, as well as supplementary exhibition hall to hold exhibition on the subject of prehistory.
Terracotta Army
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 base of real life and seem ready to set out for the battle. Each terracotta warrior has different facial expression and manner. You can figure out their armed branches from their clothing and postures. They perfectly reappeared the puissant period when Emperor Qinshihuang conquered other six kingdoms and established the first centralized feudal dynasty in Chinese history.

    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!

    Jacky was a skilled, hardworking and high-quality guide. He was friendly and warm-heart to every visitor and showed special consideration for my parents. This aroused my admiration for the friendliness of Chinese people! I strongly recommended him!
