TravelPod Member ReviewsLintong No.1 Reception House Xi'an
Today we visited the Terra Cotta Army along with Geoffrey. At first we found the soldiers very interesting but quickly, we lost interest. We think that it wasn't worth coming for because it's just soldiers and along with Jordan's attitude towards China, it wasn't very helpful. Although Geoffrey seemed very interested and keen, we weren't feeling the same. Wouldn't come back here again honestly. Tour guide was great.

As you walk through the pits, the first pit is the most impressive ...
... went back to the buses and rode one back, then went to a shop for some ro jia muo, or a beef sandwich. My mom had some sesame seed paste and rice noodles. After we finished we went back to the hotel and stayed there until dinner, where we ate fried dumplings. My mom and I also bought a ro jia muo and some sesame paste rice noodles to go, which we ate a few minutes ago. Well I'd better get going. Tomorrow I'm going to Shaanxi History museum, which is going to be fun. Well see you ...
... we were next to the pandas, we saw some red pandas real quick and headed to the People's Park. The Peoples Park is this park for old and young people to participate in clubs, go to tea houses, blind date, and row on an artificial lake. At the park, we first witnessed an old people singing group. It was very INTERESTING to watch. Very cool. After the first singing group we saw another singing group, then we saw a dance group. We saw an old man practicing ...
