Your tour guide will greet you at your downtown Xi'an hotel lobby and take you directly to Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum. Also known as the Eighth Wonders of the World, the museum shows a surprisingly high number of sculpture which makes it the most significant archeological discovery of the 20th century.
In the afternoon, you will have three most visited attractions to choose from for a visit:
- Xian ancient City Wall: the most complete and well-preserved as well as the largest city wall in China. It was built for the military defense in the ancient time. Since it encloses the city, you have an option to ride a bike on top of the city wall.
- Big Wild Goose Pagoda: originally built to hold sutras and figurines of the Buddha that Xuanzang brought back to China from India. Now the Big Wild Goose Pagoda is located in a big garden area where locals enjoy their leisure time.
- Shannxi History Museum: a huge amount of cultural relics will show you the development of Chinese civilization.
