Tour Highlights
Terracotta Army
The Terracotta Army, also known as the Terracotta Warriors and Horses, is the burial pit of Qin Shi Huang (259 BC - 210 BC) - the first emperor of China. The purpose was to protect the emperor in his afterlife. The construction work lasted for 38 years, starting when he was 13, and it wasn't completed until his son had continued the construction for another year. More than 8,000 terracotta warriors and horses with different gestures and vivid expressions have been discovered here.

Banpo Museum
This is the first museum of a prehistoric site in China, built on the ruins of a matriarchal clan of Yangshao culture during the Neolithic period, which shows the social organization, production and life, economic form, customs and cultural arts 6,000 years ago. The museum is divided into residential areas, pottery-making areas and burial areas. You can not only see living scenes of the ancient people in residential areas but also learn about their unique burial system and primitive pottery and painting arts at that time. There are also showrooms at the side of the hall to exhibit production tools and some daily necessities.

    China's thousands of history has deposited numerous treasures, which has amazed the world people. Xi'an is a fascinating city. It bears the history of 13 dynasties and witnesses the rise and fall of ancient China. The miracle of the Terracotta Warriors and Horses shocked the world. I can't help but marvel at the diligent ability of the ancient Chinese people! There were many surprises on this tour!

    Although it was rainy, we still had great fun on the one day Xi’an historical tour. Our guide Celine who was polite and friendly arranged everything well and was dedicated to her work. But the itinerary was a little busy and I’d like to have more lunch time.

    Our guide Coral picked us up at the hotel at 9:00 and brought us to the Terracotta Army. A fantastic and impressive attraction. And then we visited the Banpo Museum and the Muslim Quarter. Coral was very responsible and attentive to our needs. There were so many snacks in the Muslim Quarter, which really surprised me!!

    We made a short journey to Xi'an Shaanxi, an ancient city, and there were 13 dynasties to set up their capitals there. The fascinating interpretation of the guide let me know lots of Chinese cultures. This charming ancient city needs many times visiting! I warmly recommend it!!!

    The Xi'an day tour was very pleasant with a reasonable schedule. Our tour guide was also very kind to tourists and had a good professional quality. Her clear and comprehensive interpretation made my daughter learn a lot about Chinese history. It was meaningful for her. Really a happy trip! We all were very happy!
