Xi'an Travel Guide: 1,111 reviews and 3,065 photos

Legendary soldiers

To protect the Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi - this terracotta Army was builded and only recently discovered
Soldiers are about 1.80 meters of height - which was extreme for the peoples lenght - 2000 years ago
But Xi'an has to offer more :
-A nice old city with historic walls and towers
-And than the oldest mosque in China
-The wild goose pagode

Come with me

Way of transport

Not only warriors but also the way of transport is shown in several parts of the museum.
I remember that in the center there is also a filmprojection hall with a 360° panavision.You will feel like in the middle of those centuries.The film is taking about 10 minutes of your time

    Nowadays it seems to be allowed to take pics inside the TC warriors pit. I can't wait to take mine.

    I missed the Tang Dynasty show. It must be grand with all the colorful costumes and music. Did see a fantastic firework that lasted 2 hours. Cheers, SL

    Neither the names of Shaanxi Sheng not of Xi'an meant anything for me but the Terra cotta army did! What a wonder!
