"The Terracotta Warriors are too worth going. As one of the eight wonders of the world, the Terracotta Warriors and Horses looked at the terracotta Warriors more than 2,000 years ago and felt it was still very magical. I looked carefully and wanted to see it for a while longer. The tour guide Li Yama was not urged. The time was just right. Hahaha, it seems that this half-day tour is really deep in my heart. It is mainly the 1~3 pit. The 1 pit is the most shocking. In fact, there are still many underground ones that have not been dug out. Because of the protection of the Terracotta Warriors, because it will be oxidized. The current technology has not found a solution to protect the appearance of the oyster, so temporarily not digging is the protection of oysters. (I hope to see the new pit when I come back to Xi'an in a few years.) Thank you for the warm service of Guide Li and driver ~~~."

Reasons to Recommend: The Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses, also known as the Terracotta Army, is located about 1.5 kilometers east of the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor and forms part of the extensive necropolis. There were more than a thousand terracotta soldiers unearthed here, each with a different facial expression. Standing before the massive underground army, you will feel the extraordinary might of the Qin Emperor that enabled him to unify six warring states two thousand years ago. The Qin Emperor Ying Zheng began building the mausoleum for himself at the age of 13. Nearly 720000 men and 38 years were required to complete this vast project.

"As a net red attraction, what is the best thing in Shaanxi History Museum that we should punch in? In fact, there is a best way to let us to verify and judge whether this thing is a good thing, that is, the independent exhibition hall. I think that's one of the ways that many people would go to museums for exhibitions. But the layman watches the lively, the insider watches the doorway, what kind of background story has what kind of characteristic, worth us to study, this everybody needs to use the museum to explain the machine. Of course, volunteers are also organized to explain at the Shaanxi History Museum, but the explanations are always occasional during the epidemic. Also, to see the very fine murals, you need to put extra prices into special exhibition halls to see them. Fortunately, now that information is so advanced, we don't have to wait in line for each exhibition and each hall like we did 10 years ago. We can get admission tickets by online booking. Although museums can be difficult to get through sometimes, people can do it by constantly swiping tickets and occasionally find one or two."

Reasons to Recommend: The Shaanxi History Museum is a good place to learn about ancient Chinese civilization. The museum houses bronze artifacts from the Shang and Zhou dynasties, gold and silver artifacts of the Han and Tang dynasties, and Tang dynasty murals, of which a large portion of them are treasures of the Han and Tang period.
