Visit Terra-Cotta Warriors Museum first in the morning when the site is still in a tranquil atmosphere. Lose yourself in a majestic historical experience and take in a stunning view of thousands of life sized terra-cotta soldiers standing next to you; browse the fascinating exhibits at Xian Museum to touch Chinese history and hear from your local guide historic legends lying behind the treasures in the glass cases. Then take a guided walk around Small Wild Goose Pagoda and learn about how this 1,300-hundred year old construction survives two great earthquakes in Chinese history. Your knowledgeable and experienced guides will maximize your time in Xian and help enjoy your trip to the fullest.

Detail Itinerary

In the morning, you will be picked up from your hotel and directly taken to the meeting point. You save more time from our courtesy "point to point" transfer service so that you can spend longer at the attractions. (Our guide will contact you in advance to confirm the pickup time.)

Your tour starts at 9:00am to visit Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses first. It will leave you a quiet atmosphere in the site by avoiding crowds in morning time. Buried for over 2,000 years until local farmers stumbled upon fragments of a clay figure in 1974 when digging a well, this site was then uncovered and is reputed as the largest underground military base in the world. The scale of almost 8,000 terracotta figures standing in battle formation is awe-inspiring. You cannot miss the fine craftsmanship and artistry either for the fact that no two soldiers' faces are alike. And with your professional local guide, stories about the warriors and the first emperor who owns them will be gradually unveiled along your walk through the 3 different pits where the soldiers were buried.

Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses

Hop aboard to your van and drive back to the city to continue to visit Xian Museum, housing 130,000 pieces of archeological items in its collection, most of which were unearthed in large imperial tombs around Xian. With a deeper insight into the rich culture and history of the city, you will be astonished at the exquisite crafts making skills achieved by ancient Chinese.

Xian Museum

You also get the chance to visit Small Wild Goose Pagoda, one of the Xian's two most significant Buddhist pagodas. Setting in a lovely garden inside the museum, it is a nice place for photographs and to enjoy some peace and tranquility. Here also offers an opportunity to see daily life of the locals.
