Day 2  Huashan-Xi'an-Beijing  (B, L)
Hotel breakfast. Then continue on to visit the Terracotta Warriors by private bus. The journey takes about 1.5 hours. You’ll learn all about this incredible archaeological find, discovered in 1976 by farmers digging a well, after being buried for 2,000 years. Three main pits are open for you to view, where just under 2,000 of the total 6,000 warriors – each individually sculpted from clay, each having a different costume, height, and even facial expressions – stand in battle formation. The scale is incredibly impressive. Lunch in a local village. In the afternoon, we will enjoy a bike ride around the Old City Wall, the most significant and best-preserved wall extant in China Now. The Old City Wall of Xi'an is the complete one that has survived in China, as well as being one of the largest ancient military defensive systems in the world. Evening explore the hidden streets and quaint alleyways in the Muslim quarter. Experience Xi’an's cuisine and culture as the local people do. After that, you will be transferred to the station for an evening soft-sleeper train back to Beijing. Service ends. Note: You will arrive Beijing the next morning.

Booking a Single Room - On this particular tour we are pleased to be able to offer travellers the option of pre-booking a guaranteed single room. Due to the variety of accommodation used on this tour, single rooms are available for a majority of the nightstops, however it would still mean sharing on any overnight trains. All of our tours are planned and operated on a twin-share basis, meaning that the standard cost is based either on individual travellers sharing accommodation with another group member of the same sex, or people who book together sharing accommodation.

 

Vaccinations and Your Health - We recommend that you contact your primary care physician or a travel doctor for advice on vaccinations and travel health and we advise that you check to see if your tetanus-diphtheria booster is still valid every 10 years.
