Full description
Enjoy a combined full-day coach tour to see the Terracotta Warriors and Horses of Xi’an, and learn about Chinese history at the Banpo Museum. Traveling by air-conditioned coach, get collected from your downtown city center hotel for the drive east. Make the first stop at the Mausoleum of Emperor Qin Shihuang, the first emperor of the Qin dynasty. Discover how when he ascended to the throne at the tender age of 13, he ordered 720,000 conscript laborers to build him a royal tomb. It took about 38 years to finish and was so magnificent that it set a precedent for future feudal rulers.

Little compares to his army of Terracotta Warriors and Horses. Wander the gallery to marvel at some 8,000 life-size sculptures of men and horses of the Emperor’s funerary art. Amazingly, each one has unique features. One of the most significant archeological finds of the 20th century, once you’ve got your breath back, you can buy your own imitation warrior at the gift shop. Next, immerse yourself in Chinese history at the Banpo Museum and see artifacts excavated from the prehistoric Banpo village. Built at the base of the archaeological site, the museum also features several reconstructed houses designed to resemble the Neolithic settlement.

Alternatively, if you would like to visit only the Terracotta Warriors, please select the correct option upon check out; for this option, you will be transferred back to the pickup place after the visit to the Terracotta Warriors and lunch.
