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.

    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!
