    Mt. Huashan had beautiful scenery, where steep peak made me unforgettable. And it was only when climbing the Mt. Huashan that I knew its ruggedness. Express my gratitude again and thank you for the care and hospitality of TravelChinaGuide. I warmly recommend!

    The Terracotta Warriors and Horses is a must-see tourist attraction in Xi’an, where it has attracted countless tourists. With delicate and lively techniques, every terracotta figurine has a different costume and manner. There are many kinds of hairstyles, gestures and facial expressions. From their costumes, expressions and gestures, it can be judged whether they are officers or soldiers, infantry or cavalry. Generally speaking, all the faces of the Qin figurines show the unique dignity and calmness of the Qin people, with a distinct personality and strong characteristics of the times. It is a national treasure. I was shocked by this magnificence and strongly recommended it! ... More
