Built on the very original site of the mausoleum of Qi Shi Huang, this museum has collected all the life-size terracotta sculptures and figures that has been discovered, recreating a magnificent scene of grand Qin troops under the rule of the first ever emperor in a first unified dynasty. The army was meant to protect the emperor in his afterlife, when he considered himself continue to be the ruler.

The whole site extends about 120,000 sq meters, located at the northern foot of Lishan, east if Lintong County.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Farmers' Caves, Xi'an China

You will visit the local Farmers’ Cave home. Such dwelling form was widely popular dating back to 19th in rural places where mountains were literally everywhere. Local people came up with an idea of building houses upon the mountain. It turned out that this was a great idea as the cave is very cool in hot Summer and pretty warm in Winter. However, this kind of house is extremely dangerous especially when it comes to rainy days. Therefore this form of residence was foregone. In this short tour, you will visit a local family and see what it looks like.

Duration: 30 minutes
