You will acquire rich background information about the city from your well-educated, expert guide.

9:00 a.m. Terracotta Warriors and the Mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang (about 2.5 hours)
There are three pits in the museum. Our recommended visiting sequence is Pit 1 – Pit 2 – Pit 3 – Bronze Chariot Pit – the Mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang as you will follow historical clues that lead from general to detailed information.

  • Pit 1 is the largest of the pits and it is estimated to house around 6,000 figures as well as a great quantity of bronze weaponry. You will be shocked by the large scale of the figures lining up, and will feel as if you have been taken back to the Qin Dynasty when the army of soldiers was waiting to go out to battle.
  • Pit 2 is not as large as Pit 1. It is estimated that the terracotta warriors and horses in this pit amount to 1,300 figures. However, the great variety makes it top-rated among all three pits.
  • Pit 3 is the smallest one with only 72 terracotta warriors and horses. It is believed that it served as the headquarters for the army, directing the warriors in Pit 1 and Pit 2.
    The Bronze Chariot Pit exhibits two painted bronze chariots in a large scale. As burial objects, the bronze chariots represent Emperor Qin Shi Huang’s vehicles. Crowned as “the King of Bronze Ware”, the bronze chariots are the earliest, largest, and best-preserved bronze artifacts in the world.

12:00 p.m. Lunch at a local restaurant (about 1 hour)
We have selected a local restaurant near the Terracotta Warriors Museum. There, you can experience the most authentic Xi’an local food.

You’ll have the chance to taste the local people’s favorite food, such as Rou Jia Mo (肉夹馍, we also call it a Chinese hamburger), Yang Rou Pao Mo (羊肉泡馍, pita bread soaked in lamb soup; your guide will show you how to break the bread into small pieces), noodles, and dumplings.

1:30 p.m. Transfer to the City Wall (about 1 hour)

2:30 p.m. Walking, biking, or taking an eco-car on the Wall (about 2.5 hours)
1-Day XiAn Terracotta Warriors Tour
The first stop in the afternoon is the world’s largest and the most well preserved medieval city wall. We begin our exploration of the medieval city wall at “Yongning gate”, the most thoroughly restored part of the wall. Then we continue our journey to the museum containing the beautifully made mural explaining the rich history behind the this iconic city wall.

While the temperature is still comfortable, you can hike, cycle or ride electric vehicles on the city wall to explore the wall at your own pace. Our guide will then bring you to another part of the city wall called Hanguangmen ruins where a museum is built around the section of the city ruins from 1400. Your guide will be waiting for you at 4:30 p.m. at South Gate (the bicycle service station).

In summer, it is very hot on the wall, so we suggest you to ride the essential part of the City Wall from East Gate to South Gate only, which is about 3.5 kilometers. Then we turn to wander around the foot of the wall to escape from sun exposure, if lucky, you’ll have the chance to enjoy a free local folk performance – Shanxi Opera, which is voluntarily organized by local retired elderly people.

China Xian QinShiHuang Terracotta Warriors Museum

Terracotta Warriors in Xian, known as the eighth wonder of the world, now is a museum to display the terra-cotta warriors and horses which were made in Qin Dynasty. Qin terracotta warriors have guarded the mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang for over 2000 years. In 1987, the Mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang and Terracotta Warriors were approved by UNESCO to list in the World Heritage List.

History and Construction of Terracotta Warriors and Horses
In 221 B.C., Emperor Qin Shi Huang of the Qin dynasty established the first centralized feudal dynasty in China. After his death, he was buried at the northern foot of Lishan Hill in the east of Lintong County. The tomb has been reduced to half its size after 2,000 years of water and soil erosion, but still impressive – 76 meters high and a fundamental space of 120,000 square meters.
One unusual detail about the construction of the tomb is that the emperor had the building begin shortly after becoming king of Qin at the age of 13. This action contradicted Confucian wisdom that a son should demonstrate respect for his father by building as impressive a memorial as possible and that a man should never plan his own funeral rites.

The tomb took 39 years and 700,000 workers to reach completion. It had pearls embedded in the ceiling to represent the stars, and rivers and lakes were modeled with liquid mercury. The tomb itself has not been opened yet.

Bronze Chariot and Horses
Bronze Chariots and Horses On March 29, 1974, while a severe drought hit Shaanxi Province, villagers in Lintong County, accidentally discovered the terracotta fragments when they dug wells on their fields. The villagers called the terracotta warriors “Wa Ye” as an immortal of underground world. The first time they saw the terracotta warriors, the warriors’ clothes and weapons were still in very bright colors, after two thousand years buried underground. However, when archaeologists excavated soil, affected by air oxidation, the color of the warriors gradually disappear within a few minutes, only leaving the clay color now.

From 1976 to 1978, the archaeological team added staffs to fully carry out the excavation work. On October 1, 1979, Museum of the Terracotta Warriors and Horses of Emperor Qin Shi Huang began to exhibit to visitors from both d omestic and abroad.
Main Categories of Figures

There are four main categories of figures in this museum: chariot warriors, infantrymen, cavalrymen, and horses. There are generals, middle ranking officers, lower ranking officers, ordinary soldiers, and armored warriors. The latter can be further divided according to their headgear into warriors with a square scarf, a cylindrical bun, or a flat bun. There are kneeling warriors as well.

Sections of Terracotta Warriors Museum
Terracotta Warriors Museum was built on top of the pit sites, located at the north foot of Lishan Mountain, 7.5 kilometers east of Lintong District, 37.5 km west of Xi’an. Opened from October 1, 1979, the Pit 1 was first opened one. Until September 1991, it has officially opened the pit 3. September 1994, the Pit 2 began to exhibit to visitors while excavating.

Qin Terracotta Warriors Pit

Pit 1 Pit 1 is the largest among the 3 pits. It is 5 m deep with an area of 14260 square meters. There are over 6000 terracotta warriors and horses in annular square formation. The Pit 1 has excavated 500 terracotta warriors, 6 chariots, 24 horses and lots of bronze weapons and ironware.
Pit 2: Pit 2 is located northeast to Pit 1 and east to Pit 3, in trisquare formation. It is 96 m long from east to west and 84 m wide from south to north, with the total area about 6000 square meters. The Pit 2’s formation is more complicate, and the types of warriors are more complete than the other 2 pits. It has the most grand battle formation among the 3 pits. 

Pit 3: Pit 3, with an area of 520 square meters, is located west to Pit 1, in concave shape. At the entrance, there is a chariot. In the pit, there are 68 terracotta warriors. From the formation of Pit 3, it looks like the general headquarter. However, it was not finished
