    The magnificent Terracotta Warriors and Horses, the steep Mt. Huashan and the quiet and elegant Small Wild Goose Pagoda all left a deep impression on my journey! The itinerary of this Xi’an 4 days tour to Terracotta Army, Mt. Huashan was compact and substantial. And I would suggest that off-season was the best time to visit Mt. Huashan because there were too many people in the scenic spots in the peak season!!!

    Xi'an is one of the ancient capitals of Chinese, with a long history and rich cultural heritage. The magnificent Terracotta Warriors and Horses, the ancient Big Wild Goose Pagoda and the historical Shaanxi History Museum were must-see scenic spots that I was interested in them. Although I was a little tired, the trip was well worth it!

    I did a Xi’an Bus Tour to Terracotta Army in my free time. Everyone got on well with each other during this trip. The tour guide's interpretations were clear and easy to understand, and she was rich in professional knowledge and patient to answer each visitor's problems. Although the trip was short, there was no doubt that my trip was quite rich and substantial!
