Day 1: Terracotta Warriors Museum?Traditional Cave Dwelling? City Wall
Hotel pick up around 9:00 am
We will leave for a visit to the Terracotta Warriors Museum, which is the Eighth Wonder of the World, the biggest on-the-site museum in China with thousands of Terracotta Warriors and Horses made by ancient Chinese more than 2,000 years ago. You surely will be impressed by the magnificent formation. When you finish your visit to the Museum, we will head to the Traditional Cave Dwelling --the best-preserved old house where modern farmers still live in. You can have zero contact with local customs.
Lunch at a nice local restaurant or by your request at your own cost.
After lunch, we will spend a while on the top of the City Wall, standing in Xi’an and protecting it for about 600 years, the City Wall is the best-preserved and most complete wall that has survived through China’s long history. It is about 12 meters high, 12 to 14 meters wide across the top and 15 to 18 meters thick at the bottom. The entire circumference is about 13.7 kilometers. You will be allowed to take a walk or take a gold car to go around this old but well-preserved wall for one hour and a half. This will be quite a fun experience.
