Upon your arrival, after lunch at a local restaurant, you will drive to the Terracotta Army site which you will visit in the afternoon.

Discovered accidentally in 1974, this incredible army of over 7,000 soldiers, archers, horses, and chariots in full battle array has guarded Emperor Qin's tomb since 210 BC. Each figure is unique and most of them have been restored to their former grandeur. Today, the archeological excavations continue in three pits, which are protected inside huge hangars.

Following the visit, you will be transferred to hotel for check in and some free time at your leisure.

In the morning, visit the Small Wild Goose Pagoda and the Great Mosque.

The Small Wild Goose Pagoda was built 707–709, during the Tang dynasty. It stood at 45m until the 1556 Shaanxi earthquake which took it down to 43m. Other landmark of the city, the Great Mosque is one of the oldest, largest and best-preserved Islamic mosques in China. According to historical records engraved on a stone tablet inside, it was built in 742 during the Tang Dynasty (618-907). This was a result of Islam being introduced into Northwest China by Arab merchants and travellers from Persia and Afghanistan who settled down in China at the middle of the 7th century. The Great Mosque is striking for its particular mix of traditional Muslim and Chinese architecture styles.

After a dumplings lunch at a local restaurant, private transfer for your return by train or flight – we can also arrange these for you.
