Full description
Be greeted by your guide at the meeting point in Xi’an and travel by a private air-conditioned vehicle for about one hour to the Terracotta Warriors Museum. Here, get your first introduction to the history, culture and traditions of Xi’an. During the drive, your guide will tell you about the Terracotta Warriors, as well as some of the other sightseeing highlights around Xi’an. You’ll also get a quick lesson in basic Chinese words and daily vocabulary to practice with your travel mates.

Arrive at the mesmerising Terracotta Warriors Museum, home to 8,000 full-sized terracotta sculptures. These ancient warriors are spread across three burial pits, with the museum building constructed around the original excavation site. A large number of real bronze weapons are preserved here and some were even chrome-plated by ancient Chinese engineers so they do not rust, even after 2,200 years!

After about two hours at the world-famous museum, enjoy lunch at a local noodle shop. This is your chance to sample some regional Xi’an food, and will definitely be a highlight of the tour. There is a vegetarian option available. After lunch, you’ll be driven back to Xi’an. As you head back to the city, feel free to ask your local guide for other things to see and do in Xi’an.
