Next, continue to the world-famous Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum, and the Tomb of Emperor Qin Shi Huang (Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor).

Enter (own expense) the museum for a guided visit, and marvel at the pits holding the clay army of more than 8,000 soldiers, chariots, and horses. Learn how each sculpture was given individual features and buried with the emperor in around 210 BC, before being discovered in 1974.
