Visit the Terracotta Warriors Museum (2.5 hours)

After arriving, you will visit the  Terracotta Warriors and Horses (40 miles away from downtown), the greatest archaeological findings of the 20th century——the army of terra-cotta warriors and the bronze chariots entombed in vast underground vaults at emperor Qin's tomb.It will take around 2.5 hours to appreciate there.

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.
