Our tour guide will pick up you from your hotel lobby at confirmed time around 8:30 am. Then head for the Terra-cotta Warriors & Horses (40 miles away from downtown), the bronze chariots entombed in vast underground vaults at emperor Qin's tomb. You will appreciate the marvelous Terracotta warriors in full battle array of Emperor Qin's tomb.
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 took 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 pits of warriors and horses have been discovered for now. Pit 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.

You will also go to visit Banpo Neolithic Village Museum, which is a New Stone Age site which is dating back to approximately 5,000 to 4,000 B.C.
