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 Qin Dynasty are typical of the funeral burial with figurines, and the pinnacle of funeral burial with figurines. The reason why the Qin figurines reached such a high level in scale and realism is 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 are open with the first pit uncovered accidentally by the local peasants and the seond and third found by the experts. 

We'll teat you lunch at a nearby restaurant, then drive back to Xian. You’ll get a chance to walk or 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.
