Recognised as one of the greatest archaeological sites in the world, it’s no surprise how many people come to see the Terracotta Warriors each day. We start bright and early and arrive at the UNESCO site before the crowds in our trusty vintage jeep. It makes such a difference being able to get that bit closer and fully appreciate the craftsmanship and history of the place. It also gives you the rest of the day to see what else Xi’an has to offer!
Our local insiders are warrior experts and know the site like the back of their hands. You’ll be so grateful to have someone with you as they navigate the vaults, answering all your questions and giving you as much of a history lesson as you would like. Having explored to your heart’s content, we get back on the road and pay a visit to the Loess plateau before grabbing some world-famous Shaanxi cuisine. During all our trips we try to show our guests the landmark sites, but we also want to give them some insights into the country they’re visiting so perhaps we’ll stop and have a game of ‘tou luo’ or enjoy a cup of tea together in between.
We like to end this day out with a beautiful drive up into the mountains to a charming 2000-year-old temple where locals believe mankind was born. It’s a really full day but definitely one you’ll remember.
