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.

So many dumplings we couldn't finish it but it was a different experience from a traditional dinner we are used to. After dinner the show began and it portrayed the story of the Tang Dynasty through music and dancing. Dan missed the best bit of the show when he went to the toilet. A man made a kind of musical noise through his mouth, which was high ...
... us opted to go back to get the cable car down, while some of the braver ones lined up for the toboggan. It was then when we had finished trying to get as many deals as we could in the stalls that we drove back to the airport where we got our plane to Xi'an.
However, there was one surprise waiting for us when we got to the airport, as we were checking our bags on the walkway above the arrivals gate, a bright light went off and then the ...
... to attend as well, and they sat behind and to the left of us, passing notes and goofing around. My host, Aimee, told me that she planned on sleeping through the ceremony, and suggested I do the same.
The ceremony was held on the seventh floor of Building Three, just off the track and field, behind buildings One and Two, where we spend most of our time. We shuffled and huffed our way up the stairs to arrive at last in what appeared to be a concert hall, complete ...
