Xi'an City Wall

Discover the rich history and archaeology of ancient China on your day trip to Xi’an from Shanghai. Xi’an served as the center of Chinese civilization, with 13 dynasties basing their capitals here.

After arriving in Xi’an, you’ll visit the impressive Army of Terracotta Warriors. Emperor Qin Shi Huang built this mausoleum starting at the age of 13 (in 246 BC) to prepare for his afterlife. See the 6,000 terracotta figures of warriors and horses, lined in three rows of 210 soldiers. This impressive archaeological discovery is a sight not to be missed!

Feast on a traditional Chinese lunch and then head to the Xi’an city walls.

Trip of a lifetime. Great service from driver and previous night's guide. Jennifer was extremely concerned about our arrival at airport and successful navigation of airport. She wrote detailed directions for us and gave us her phone number in case of emergency. Very caring.
