Upon arrival in Xi'an, your Xi'an tour guide will meet you at the airport or train station and take you to your hotel for check-in and to have a rest. If you need any advice about restaurants or shopping places, our tour guide will give you some ideas.
The Terracotta Warriors and Horses, Learn How to Make Terracotta Warrior at a Cave Dwelling, Shaanxi History Museum, Xi'an Imperial Fine Arts center
This morning we will visit Shaanxi History Museum which displays and tells the story of the 13 different Dynasties which used Xi'an as their base.
Then we will drive about one and a half hours to the wonder of ancient China－Terracotta Warriors and Horses where you can check for yourself whether it is true that there are no two figures exactly alike. Have lunch in a Sichuan restaurant nearby, before a walk to a handicraft center.
Visit the cave dwelling family workshop in the countryside; learn how to make Terracotta Warriors from a local farmer. Do you know how life-sized warriors were made in ancient times? Do you know what the most difficult step is? Find the answers by visiting the place.
Idea for free-time exploration:
Walking down the Muslim Quarter is a real adventure, with crowds of people and the odd car and motor bike with trays of goods on board, tooting and pushing through the crowds.
Huashan Mountain, Cable Car on Mt. Huashan,
After breakfast, we will take a 2? hour drive to Mount Huashan. Renowned as a sacred mountain, Mount Huashan boasts a lot of religious heritage. You will find buddhist and daoist temples, pavilions, buildings and scriptures scattered everywhere.
The mountain has five summits: South Peak - which is 2,160.5 meters above sea level, East Peak - which is the best place for watching a sunrise, West Peak or Lotus Flower Peak, North Peak and Middle Peak. We will arrange for you to take the cable car to North Peak to get up the mountain across Canglong Ridge, and you can enjoy the scenery along the way.
Walking on the narrow plank along the cliffside at South Peak is a challenge for thrill seekers. Don't miss this walk, unless you are afraid of heights. And then take the cable car down the mountain from West Peak.
