1 Day Terracotta Warriors & Hanyangling Museum Bus Tour
No one can escape from the simple law of nature – death. Emperors are no exception. This tour will take you to explore the famed Terracotta Warriors and Hanyangling Mausoleum to understand Chinese history and tomb culture. The over 2000-year-old amazing terracotta army of China’s first emperor, Qinshihuang, and numerous burial objects unearthed from the mausoleum of Emperor Hanjingdi and his empress were given as sacrifices to the emperors in the ancient time, but now they have become priceless treasures. They tell future generations the evolution of Chinese civilization and provide important evidences for studying history. We are looking forward to sharing Chinese history and culture with you.
