Learn about the first emperor of the Qin Dynasty, who ordered the making of a terracotta army during his reign, and see some of the estimated 8,000 life-size soldiers and horses that were buried in Emperor Qin’s tomb, a UNESCO World Heritage site, to protect him in the afterlife - a testament to his power.

Be whisked away to the ancient city wall, one of the oldest and best preserved in China. First built in the 2nd century BC when Chang’an (as it was then known) was an ancient capital, the existing wall dates back to the Ming Dynasty and was completed in AD 1370. Then visit the Big Wild Goose Pagoda. Built in AD 652 during the Tang Dynasty as a holy place for Buddhists, it remains an iconic symbol of old Xi’an. Standing in the Da Ci’en Temple complex, this pagoda was built to house important Buddhist relics and figurines brought from India. When the Xi'an sightseeing ends, you will be transferred to the Xi’an airport for your return flight. You will be picked up on arrival in Guangzhou and driven safely back to your hotel in Guangzhou just in time for a good night’s sleep.
