Terracotta Warriors and Horses, Great Mosque, Muslim Quarter, Big Wild Goose Pagoda
AM: Our tour guide and driver will pick you up from your downtown hotel in the morning. Then directly transfer you to the Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses. Known as “the Eighth Wonder of the World” and one of the most significant archaeological discoveries in the 20th century, the museum shows a surprisingly high level in sculpture. The splendid battle formation will leave you an impressive memory.
Noon: Lunch in a local restaurant.
PM: After lunch, we will go back to city center to visit the Big Wild Goose Pagoda which was originally built to hold the sutra and Buddha statues that Xuanzang brought back to China from India in the Tang Dynasty. Now there is a big garden around the pagoda where people can have a nice walk. Next stop will be Great Mosque, a major place for religious activities of the Muslims in Xi’an. This mosque, different from the mosques we usually see, is more like a traditional Chinese garden. For example, you will see Chinese pavilions with painted beams and engraved ridgepoles. At last, take a stroll down the Muslim Quarter, the best known and colorful food street in Xian. If you like, our guide will escort you to some more alleys in Muslim Quarter to see real life of Muslim people here.
At the end of the tour, the guide and driver will transfer you back to your hotel.
