Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses, Ancient Xian City Wall, Muslim Quarter
AM:In the early morning our local driver will pick you up from your hotel lobby by holding a board with your name and then transfer to airport to take the morning flight to Xian (We will book the round way flights and advise you the flight tickets information in advance).
Upon arrival in Xian, our English speaking tour guide will greet you at the exit of Xian airport. Your adventure begins with the Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses which is known as “the Eighth Wonders of the World” with a surprisingly high level in sculpture. It is located 30 km east of the Xi’an City and the original site was found by four local farmers while drilling a well in 1974. Now it has turned into one of the most important attractions in China and the No.1 attractive site in Xi’an. The museum includes Pit 1(the largest pit), Pit 2, Pit 3, and the exhibition hall of the chariots and horses. You will stay in the museum for 2-3 hours. Listening to the explanation from the expert tour guide, you will learn the hidden story of those live-sized sculptures and history of their owner: First Emperor of Qin who is also the first emperor of China.
Noon: Lunch in local restaurant.
PM: After the lunch, we come to Xian Ancient City Wall which is the most completely preserved and the largest city wall in China. It was built for the military defense in the Ming Dynasty, 1370 A.D. Since it is cycling the Xian city, visitors can ride a bike around the city wall which is optional (cost on your own, CNY45p.p). If time permits, you will visit Muslim Quarter, the best known food street in Xian. You will meet lots of local snacks and specialties. It would be a good chance to record the local food with your camera.
Finally, the tour guide and driver will transfer you back to the Xian airport to take flight leaving for Shanghai. Upon arrival in Shanghai, our local driver will wait for you at the exit of Shanghai airport by holding a board with your name and then transfer to your hotel.
