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.

Shopping wasn’t the only thing to take place, as one of the students seemed to wonder off from the group. Luckily, she found another group of tourists who were more than happy to escort back to our group.
After that little adventure we then went back to the hotel to pack ...
It was a lovely day again today. We got our friendly driver, Little Tiger, to take us to the monument for the start of the Silk Road and then onto Fengoing Park on the way to the airport. The park was full of families strolling around, on boats on the lake and driving around in little electric cars. We had a nice cream and a beer and spent a couple of hours enjoying the sunshine after the awful downpour of ...
Another example of how China has changed since 2007 was the infrastructure around the Terracotta Warriors. There are landscaped parks, restaurants, shops and more development underway. Previously it was just the three pits with buildings covering them.
The Terracotta Warriors were discovered in 1974 when a farmer Mr Yung was digging for a well. Today he sits at a book stall and signs books. The 6,000 terracotta warriors and horses face east. Each ...
