Meeting in the hotel lobby at 8:30 am and you will first visit the world famouse Terra-cotta Warriors, followed by a lunch in a local Chinese restaraunt. After lunch, you will be transferred back to the city to visit the ancient City Wall. After that wonder around the Muslim street.
Terra-cotta Warriors, known as the Eighth Wonder In the World. In 1974, when several farmers were digging a water well nearby the tomb of the first Qin emperor, the fragments of the Terra-cotta figures were found. Later on, it’s found to be a huge underground army built in the Qin dynasty, which can be dating back to 2200 years ago. It’s considered as one of the most important archeological discoveries in the 20th century in China.
On the moment when you enter the museum, standing in front of the thousands of the life size terra-cotta warriors, you will not say anything but “Woo!”, it seems that those warriors have come back to life telling us the story happened about the lost Qin empire.
City Wall, one of the best preserved walls all around China with a history over 600 years, dividing the whole Xi’an city into two parts, including the inner city known as the old town and the outer city. This city wall goes all around with a perimeter about 13.7km (8.5 miles),the four major city gates, guard houses, battlements are still perfectly preserved, you may climb to the top of the wall to have a very relaxing walk to have a spectacular view of the old town inside the wall, or you can even do biking on the top of the wall, feeling the very tender wind blowing over your face to get a smooth touch of the history back to the Ming dynasty.
Muslim Street, located in the very downtown of Xi’an, muslim quarters will be another highlight in Xi’an. You may see the local muslim cooking the street food like kababs and pickled beef , selling the dried fruit and 100% knock off staff, and you will get into the real life of the local people.
