What to Expect
Explore the city of Xi'an and learn about its history on a full-day private tour. Visit the terracotta warriors and spend time at the Banpo Museum.
The vaults containing the Terracotta Army are located 29 miles (40 kilometers) east of Xi'an. This army of more than 6,000 life-size terracotta warriors, with horses and chariots lined up facing east and ready for battle, is one of the world's most remarkable archaeological finds.
The terracotta warriors were made for Qin Shihuang (259-210 BC), and with his mausoleum lying only 0.9 miles (1.5 kilometers) away. It is assumed the army was made to accompany him on his journey after death. Check out this deserved UNESCO World Heritage Site with your guide.
Located on the eastern outskirts of Xi'an city, the Banpo Museum is the first on-site prehistoric museum in China. The Banpo site was a typical Neolithic matriarchal community of the Yangshao culture (5000-3000 BC) existing around 6,000 years ago. About 400 sites of this type have been discovered around the Yellow River Basin.
