Lonely Planet review

With its dramatic location atop a hill overlooking fields and the nearby Yellow River, the Tomb of Sima Qian is an imposing sight, even if there's an elevated freeway close by. Despite that, it's still a popular spot with picnickers. The actual tomb, though, isn't much to look at.

The tomb is 10km south of town. To get here, take bus 1 (Y1, 10 minutes) from the train station to its terminus at Nánguān, and then switch to the green Sīmǎ Miào bus (Y3, 20 minutes). You'll have to catch a taxi back (Y30).
