After breakfast, your guide and driver will meet you at your hotel lobby and start for the Terracotta Warriors. Known as the Eighth Wonder of the World, the Terracotta Warriors slept under the ground for 2,200 years before the accidental discovery by local farmers who were digging wells. The life-size terracotta warriors differ from one another in clothing, hairstyle, posture and facial expression. Since its opening to public in 1979, it attracts millions of people from all over the world each year and has become one of the things that represent China throughout the world.
After a Chinese style lunch, we will drive back to Xian downtown to visit Ancient City Wall, the largest and best-preserved ancient city wall in China. It served as the military defensive system in ancient times, which can be traced back to the Tang Dynasty. After arriving at the City Wall, you can optionally choose to explore the wall by foot or ride a bike to enjoy the panoramic views of the city and take in 600 years of history whistling past your face.
Then it’s time to say goodbye to this ancient capital. Your guide and driver will escort you to catch the flight back to Shanghai.
