The Eternal Romance of the Terracotta Warriors
"Qin Shi Huang drank mercury, thinking it would give him eternal life."
- BBC, April 12, 2017
Terracotta Warriors and Horses of the Qin Dynasty are typical of the funeral burial with figurines and a funeral burial pinnacle with figures. The Qin figurines reached such a high level in scale and realism that apart from the wisdom of the craftsmen, it is also inseparable from the will of Qin Shihuang, the first feudal emperor in history. There are three pits at the Museum open with the very first one uncovered accidentally by the local peasants, and the seond and third found experts.
After lunch inside the Museum, we'll drive back to Xian to take a bike ride around Xian's still functioning City Wall. Xian is one of the few Chinese cities that still has its city wall intact.

Our other guides Daniel and Melody were also excellent and very knowledgeable and patient. The Terracotta Warriors and the City Wall were such an incredible and personal journey, but it would not have been wonderful without the service from your company.
