The orderly arranged terra cotta warriors and horses as well as the well-made bronze weapons, chariots and horses will show you how mighty the military forces were and how advanced the manufacturing industry was in the Qin Dynasty, about 2,200 years ago. From hairstyle to clothing, you can also have a glimpse of the custom of that period.

We leave the lunch on your own. There are many restaurants around the museum, besides KFC and Burger King, you can also taste some local foods with the advice of your guide.

In the afternoon, continue your private Xian 4 days itinerary to the Shaanxi History Museum, where there is a galaxy of fine artistic and cultural relics. Among the vast array of antiquities, there are exquisite bronzes of the Shang and Zhou dynasties (1600-256 BC), vivid pottery figurines in various postures of different dynasties, rare gold and silver wares of the Han and Tang dynasties (202-907 BC) and peculiar mural paintings in the Tang tombs, all of which are the finest part that should not be missed. After that, your guide will show you around the Small Wild Goose Pagoda in the Jianfu Temple.

Day 3 A Day Trip to Mt. Huashan or Qianling Mausoleum & Famen Temple
Mt. Huashan with the round trip cable car, or Qianling Mausoleum & Famen Temple. (B)
Mt. Huashan
Mt. Huashan
Today, we will head for a private day trip to Mt. Huashan, which is 120 kilometers away from Xi'an City. As one of the five sacred mountains in China, Mt. Huashan is famous for its natural vistas of steep and narrow paths, precipitous crags, lofty peaks and a high mountain range. It takes two hours by car to reach the foot of the mountain.

Upon arrival, you will take a cable car first to the top station located on the hillside of the North Peak under the company of your guide. Then climb up to the top of the North Peak with a high altitude of 1614 meters for around half an hour. If you are energetic enough, you may continue to hike up to the Black Dragon Ridge, one of the most dangerous passes of the mountain. We believe that you will be impressed by the majesty of the Huashan Mountain as well as its supernatural atmosphere. Afterwards, get back to the North Peak and take the cable car down to the foot of the mountain. The whole guided hiking may take around two hours in total. Then we will transfer you back to Xi'an.

► Alternative trip to Qianling Mausoleum & Famen Temple
If you are not interested in Mt. Huashan, we can arrange a visit to Qianling Mausoleum and Famen Temple instead. After 1.5 hours' drive from the city, you will arrive at the well-preserved Qianling Masusoleum, which is the tomb of the Emperor Gaozong (628-683) of the Tang Dynasty and his wife Wu Zetian (624-705), the only female Emperor in China. You will also visit the nearby two satellite tombs of Princess Yongtai and Crown Prince of Zhanghuai.

Then, we will take a ride of one hour to Famen Temple. Lunch is arranged on your own, you will get useful advice and assistance from your guide. This ancient Buddhist holy temple with a history of over 1,700 years is world-famous for holding the relic of Sakyamuni's finger bone. After visit, we will transfer you back to Xi'an.

    The 4 days Xi’an tour had a successful end. It was a wonderful cultural journey! We visited the Terracotta Warriors and Horses, Mt. Huashan, Shaanxi History Museum... It was a rich journey! It was really suitable to visit Xi'an in autumn with the right temperature. The tour guide arranged the journey enthusiastically and carefully. He prepared gloves for every visitor before climbing Mt. Huashan, which was very thoughtful. This trip was so lucky and happy that I met such good group friends, the tour guide, and the driver. Thank you again for the customer service, tour guide, driver of TravelChinaGuide! Looking forward to the next trip! We are particularly grateful! ... More

    Our guide Tracy was good at imparting the history of attractions in her way and it was not boring to listen to her at all. I have taken many other guided tours over the years and can honestly say that this tour was one of the best. I was so glad to have a new understanding of China on this 4 days Xi’an tour. There was no shopping stop. But the guide can give you suggestions freely if you want to buy some local productions and gifts.
