Tour Itinerary

Our tour guide will pick you up from your hotel lobby at confirmed time between 8:00-9:00. On the way to the Terra-cotta Warriors Museum, we will first make a short visit to the Terra-cotta Figures Factory which focuses on the reproduction of the Terra-cotta Soldiers. And then visit Terra-cotta Warriors, the greatest archaeological findings of the century: the army of terra-cotta warriors and the bronze chariots entombed in vast underground vaults at emperor Qin's tomb. Stay here for 2.5 hours.

In ancient China, when a person died, especially someone of high status or with wealth, there would be someone or something to be buried with the dead. The Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses were built to be buried with First Emperor of Qin when he died. Chinese emperors usually began to built their tombs when he was alive. Qin Shi Huang began to build his tomb soon after he became an emperor. It takes about 40 years to finish the whole project. Over 700 thousand labors took part in the construction of the Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses.

Three vaults of warriors and horses have been discovered for now. Vault 1 is the largest pit among the three. These three pits covers an area of over 20 thousand square kilometers. The warriors and horses are the same size as those in real life. Each of the warriors looks different. The weapons the warriors holding are all made of metal, which can be used in real wars. It indicates that Qin Dynasty’s metallurgical technology and weapon-manufacturing technique already had reached quite a high level. No wonder people say that it is an underground army.

After lunch, we will drive by Qin Shi Huang Mausoleum and view it from a distance. Most of the mausoleum haven't been excavated and what's inside still remains a mystery. What we can see today is just fields and hills.

After the tour we will drop you off at your hotel around 3:30 pm.
