Overview

D1

Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, Ancient City Wall, Muslim Street

7:30 am - 9:00 am, Hotel Pick-up and Transfer to the Terracotta Warriors Museum.

Meet your guide in your hotel lobby at an appointed time. Hotel pick-up and drop-off services are available within the 3rd ring road of Xi'an. For the further distance, an extra cost may apply for transfer which you'll be notified by your travel operator.

It is approx. 50 mins to drive from downtown Xi'an to the Terracotta Warriors Museum. You will acquire rich background information about the city from your expert guide. Being prepared with a little knowledge about the Terracotta Army beforehand is highly recommended for a perfect trip if you don't just want to see lots of similar-looking stone statues.



9:00 am - 12:00 pm, Visit the Terracotta Warriors.

Your exploration of the Terracotta Army site begins. Please follow your guide to discover the amazing terracotta warriors that were buried for more than 2,000 years and to hear interesting stories about China's first emperor - Emperor Qin Shi Huang (259–210 BC).

There are three pits in the museum. Our recommended visiting sequence is Pit 1 – Pit 2 – Pit 3 – Bronze Chariot Pit as you will follow historical clues that lead from general to detailed information.



Pit 1 is the largest of the pits and it is estimated to house around 6,000 figures as well as a great quantity of bronze weaponry. You will be shocked by the large scale of the figures lining up, and will feel as if you have been taken back to the Qin Dynasty when the army of soldiers was waiting to go out to battle.

Pit 2 is not as large as Pit 1. It is estimated that the terracotta warriors and horses in this pit amount to 1,300 figures. However, the great variety makes it top-rated among all three pits.

Pit 3 is the smallest one with only 72 terracotta warriors and horses. It is believed that it served as the headquarters for the army, directing the warriors in Pit 1 and Pit 2.

The Bronze Chariot Pit exhibits two painted bronze chariots in a large scale. As burial objects, the bronze chariots represent Emperor Qin Shi Huang's vehicles. Crowned as "the King of Bronze Ware", the bronze chariots are the earliest, largest, and best-preserved bronze artifacts in the world.




1:30 pm - 5:00 pm, Drive Back to Xi'an Ancient City Wall (East Gate). 

After lunch, return to Xi'an for the next destination, Xi'an Ancient City Wall. A nap might be necessary for you to feel refreshed during a 50-minute driving back.

Xi'an Ancient City Wall was first built in the Ming Dynasty (1370–1378 AD) and is the largest and the best-maintained ancient city wall in China. It is shaped like a rectangle with a total length of 13.74 kilometers. The downtown part of Xi'an City is centered within this ancient city wall. There are four major gates (the north gate, the east gate, the south gate, and the west gate) of this city wall. Your visit will start from East Gate (Chang Le Gate).

We highly recommend you to take the eco-car running on the city wall (your guide will buy the tickets for you). This runs from East Gate – North Gate – West Gate – South Gate and you will meet your guide and the other tour members at South Gate at about 4:30 pm (the Bicycle Service Station). But in summer, it is very hot on the wall, so we suggest you to ride the essential part of the City Wall from East Gate to South Gate only, which is about 3.5 kilometers.




5:00 pm - 6:00 pm, Visit Xi'an's Most Famous Food Street - Muslim Street.

The Muslim quarters lies 100 meters west of the Bell tower in downtown Xi'an. The 500 meters long avenue paved by blues tones are dotted with many unique stall, souvenir shop, café and bars which are mostly run by Muslim people. You'll see lots of featured foods and snacks. You can try some if you'd like to.



6:00 pm -6:30 pm, Drive Back to Your Hotel.

Tour ends. You will be returned to your hotel, or you can stay in Muslim Street and explore by yourself. Please make sure to reserve at least 3 hours if you want to catch an onward flight or 2 hours if you want to catch an onward train. Please book the transfer with us in advance and tell us your flight (or train) number and departure time.
