Sightseeing


Terracotta Warriors

Thousands of lifelike terracotta soldiers stand in lines, waiting for your inspection. Seeing them in person is much more astonishing than just watching them on TV or in pictures. They stand grand and solemn, but can you hear their voices behind the silence? They tell you of their sacred mission guarding the Emperor Qin Shihuang for more than 2,200 years.


Hanyangling Museum

This museum has an underground exhibition hall so people can see the discoveries from the archeological digs in the big mausoleum complex of Emperor Jingdi (also named Liu Qi, 188–141 BC) of the Han Dynasty, his wife, officials, dynastic clan members, and commoners.There is also a graveyard for the slaves who built the complex. The archeological dig site only covers a small area, but the whole burial complex is immense. It covers a total area of about 10 square kilometers or 4 square miles.


Ancient City Wall

Cycle on the Xi’an Ancient City Wall, feeling and touching the invisible soul of this ancient city. Be a native of Xi’an, tasting the local people’s favorite food and experiencing the diverse culture.


Visit the Exterior of the Big Wild Goose Pagoda

This 9-floor Buddhist tower, along with the Temple of Great Maternal Grace, was built by the Emperor Li Zhi of the Tang Dynasty to memorialize his mother, Empress Wende. After the temple was built, Li Zhi invited the famous monk, Xuan Zang (known as Tang Monk in the book The Journey to the West), as the honored master in the temple.



Master Xuan Zang lived here and brought many Buddhist sutras from India, bringing the religion to China. He translated the Buddhist text here as well. You can take a picture with the statue of Master Xuan Zang.
