Trip Moment Recommendations
Xi’an. Terracotta Army. Old city.
We spent three days as a family in Xi'an! It was enough to see the city and visit the Terracotta Army Museum! The first recommendation is to find a bus that will take you to the Terracotta Army Museum. From the square near the railway station (the station of ordinary trains, not high-speed ones, located next to the city wall), buses no longer run like five years ago. Taxi drivers don't know it either. I had to ride, and one local resident nevertheless wrote to us where to look for bus 306 (I attach the screen). But we no longer began to go there, but ordered a taxi directly to the Terracotta Army. Through the application of a taxi cost 75 baths. We also went back by taxi for 85 yuan, also ordered through the application on the phone. The second recommendation concerns visiting the city wall. Tickets can be purchased via WeChat or paper tickets at the offices next to the wall entrances. Almost no one speaks English, and through an interpreter they themselves often do not understand what they want and need from them. As a result, we took tickets for the whole day for 54 yuan. In the evening there is a light show together with the theater! Beautiful! But we couldn’t get there because at the box office they said that tickets for the wall are valid for the show, but it turned out not to be so. Tickets need to be purchased separately and cost 280 yuan alone. The third recommendation for visiting the Pagoda. Entrance to the territory of the Pagoda is possible only until 17:30. Therefore, they did not enter the territory. And as an amateur to shoot with a camera and a drone, recommendations. In general, flying and shooting from a drone is prohibited, but as the locals said, it is not strictly controlled. Therefore, you can take off from a quiet place near the sights, fly not low, shoot and return. Over the bell tower in the evening drones like mosquitoes))). You can also visit the mountains near Xi'an, but we decided to dedicate a separate trip to this! We loved Xi'an! Beautiful city! Lots of history! Lots of Chinese culture! I definitely recommend visiting this city! #xian #terracottaarmy #shanxi #belltower
I saw the Terracotta Army - Xian 西安
First time going to Xian and it was amazing. Firstly, the Terracotta Army is a must see. The site was huge and you can easily spend several hours there. I would strongly recommend going with a tour guide as they can tell you a lot more about the history of the site.
You can also see a lot of the history in the downtown areas of Xian, with plenty of walls and towers to visit. I would also strongly recommend visiting the Muslim Quarter, as they have some of the best lamb and noodle dishes I have ever tasted.

The Famous Terracotta Warriors 🇨🇳
Xi’an was on my bucket list for a long time. I finally made it and had the chance to visit the Terracotta Warriors.
📍Location: Xi’an (Outside of the city center. You can take the subway and get a DiDi from there.)
Attractions: Famous Terracotta Warriors (Known as the 8th wonder of the world). The clay warriors were found in 1974 by local farmers.
When visiting the site, make sure you go meet one of the farmers that found the clay warriors. Ask around to find out where his shop is. I had the chance to meet him and he signed my book. It was a pretty cool experience!
Travel wish for the new year: I’ve never had the chance to visit Yangshuo. I hope I’ll be able to make it next year.

How to visit the Terra-Cotta Army in Xi'An
Xi'An in China's Shaanxi is famous for the City-Wall, food and... The Terra-Cotta Army! Some decades ago, a team of Chinese and international archeologists found the site with hundreds of Terra-Cotta figures from ancient times.
Today it's a museum and it's really impressive to visit.
📍 The Chinese name is 秦始皇兵马俑博物馆 (BingMaYong Museum). There are basically three options to go there: 1) Public bus from Xi'An Center 2) Own car 3) Taxi. It's a little bit outside the center, so better don't go too late.
🎟️ Entrance is 120RMB, discounts for students

Unveiling the Secrets of Terracotta Army
Visiting the Terracotta Army Museum was a mesmerizing odyssey through China's ancient wonders. The sheer grandeur of the meticulously crafted soldiers, each with a unique expression, left me spellbound. It felt like wandering in a historical epic, unraveling the mysteries of an emperor's afterlife army.
The museum's detailed exhibits and passionate guides provided an immersive experience, making it a must-visit destination for history enthusiasts and curious travelers alike. A journey that transcends time and leaves you marveling at the genius of ancient civilizations.
The astonishing Terracotta Army!
Built by China’s first emperor Qin Shi Huang of the Qin Dynasty 2,200 years ago. When he was just 13 years old, he wanted a mausoleum as big as a city built for him to protect him in the afterlife. The city sized mausoleum is guarded by the life sized Terracotta Army of more than 8,000 life sized soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 Calvary horses. Also among the army were 40,000 real bronze weapons
Construction took 38 years to build, by 720,000 workers (from 247BC - 208 BC). The Terracotta Army was first discovered in 1974 by five farmers when they were digging a well. One of the farmers is still alive.
Today, there are about 108 pits discovered but only 3 pits are open to the public. All the warriors were discovered broken except for one kneeling archer that was found intact (slide 3). He is called the lucky warrior. It takes about one year to put one warrior back together using the same technique (including baking the clay in 950 -1200 degrees heat for a week). Each warrior weighs 100kg.
When the warriors were first found, they were originally coloured, but due to the lack of technology at the time, the colour vanished within a week after they were exposed to the dry air

Finally made it to the Terracotta Army
I’ve always wanted to visit here, and finally had the chance. A bit hard to see; I’d recommend bringing binoculars if you have them. The second big room was the highlight for me, as you can see closeups of five of the soldiers and really take a close look at their artistry. I spent around 1.5 hours there in total…though I probably was much more quick than others because I wasn’t as interested in the souvenir shops and food all around. #terracottaarmy #xian #china
#terracottaarmy #xian Terracotta Army was a great place to visit. It’s located out of the city but was easy to get to (subway and bus). I was exploring the place myself, although there is an option to hire a guide. by myself I felt more flexible and free. Do not recommend to visit the place during the peak season, as the city of great historical importance attracts lots of tourists, so during the peak season you have a risk not to see anything
XIAN- 3 MUST Visit Places in Xian!
1. The City Wall
This is one of the ancient largest military defences in the world and it is also well preserved. To enter the city wall you have to pay 54rmb. You can cycle around the wall or just enjoy strolling around while taking great photos. Free for children and senior citizens.. just doubke check the height requiremenents for a free entrance for your kids.
2. Terracotta Warriors
Of course, this is the main attraction in Xian. We took the subway and bus going to this place. Metro line 2 to Beidajie then Line 1 to Fangzhicheng then Line 9 to Huaqing Pool Station. Afterwards we took 602 bus. This is a long ride that takes around 2 hours. We bought the tickets by the entrace for 120rmb each and we spent 3 hours inside.
3. Bell Tower
You can easily spot this in the city coz it is located downtown. We never had the chance to go inside and see the city from above the tower but we enjoyed looking at it lit up at night. We tried to buy but ticket office was close already. So make sure you go there early to avail tickets for the day or for the next day. Ticket price is I guess 35rmb
4. Muslim Quarters
My gosh I wish I had 2 bellies coming to this.place. I kade a huge mistake though looking and asking for
pork for like a good 5 minutes then we realized how wrong that was hahaha! For food lovers this is a foodie lover heaven.
Enjou your holiday!

Terracotta army-just for a tick in UNESCOlist
Visiting terracotta army was the biggest disappointment of the summer for a few reasons:
1. Herds of tourists and terrible heat this July
2. Overpriced (for a hall of statues... )
Well, I could still recommend to go there to those, who don't have overestimated expectations and NOT during summer holidays.
My tour included a visit to Huaqing palace in the morning which I liked better (all pictures but the first are from that site), even had some time to hike the "mountain". However, if you prepare in advance and learn a bit about Xian's incident, you can see a play of the same name there at the Scenic spot (I missed it because I didn't prepare well enough in advance and regretted afterwards)
a must see when you’re in china #xian #terracottaarmy

Xi’an! #citywall #belltower #terracottaarmy
this is truly a masterpiece if ancient history. I bought tickets on Trip.com and I got a little discount. I saw in the comments that the window to collect the tickets I'd aside of the normal ticket windows but eventually it appeared to be in another building yet next to the one with ticket windows selling physical tickets, so I had to look around but once I found the place the process was smooth and fast. The public transportation is great. I go by subway till the end of the metro line (blue) and then took the bus 306 (even though Baidu maps showed me different one but local people byolf me this one is better option) I paid Only 10 rmb in total to get to the mausoleum. it is huge so be prepared for 4 hours of jaw dropping experience.
