Highlights

  • Yield to the Terracotta Warriors, buried alongside the first Qin Emperor to protect him in the afterlife.
  • Forget about any inconvenience with our professional and friendly staff.

Description

On the way to the Terracotta Warriors Museum, we will first make a short visit to the Terracotta Figures Factory which focuses on the reproduction of the Terracotta Soldiers.

Next head to visit the Terracotta Warriors and Horses, which are one of the most significant archeological excavations of the 20th century. They were discovered by local farmers in 1974 and now it is one of the most visited museums in the world.

Life size terracotta figures of warriors and horses arranged in battle formations are the star features at the museum. They are replicas of what Qin Shi Huang’s imperial army would look like at that time, 210-209 BC. The army was built in order to protect the emperor in the afterlife. Today, there are still miles of land with unexcavated treasures.

Different pits have different figures – ranging from military personnel to musicians, acrobats, and strongmen. In the main and most impressive vault of the museum, you will see figures arranged in typical battle formation in 11 columns comprising officers, soldiers holding spears and swords, and others steering horse-drawn chariots, as if ready for one last battle. Don’t hesitate to explore the museum exhibits displaying artifacts and a film on the fascinating history of the mausoleum.

After enjoying a traditional Chinese cuisine lunch, we will drive by Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum without stopping in order to see it from the distance. Then transfer back to your hotel in Xian city centre
