The Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum was listed by UNESCO in 1987 as one of the world’s cultural heritages. It is actually the mausoleum of the first Chinese emperor in the ancient time. The tremendous underground army was made to guard the emperor after his death. Now the warriors still stand solemnly waiting for an order. Their facial expressions could be seen clearly although they have been buried for more than 2,000 years. No one knows the exact story of them but everyone has a story for them deep in mind. A typical Chinese lunch will be served at a local restaurant and then you may have a short break. For the afternoon arrangement, it is flexible for you to decide.
