Overview:

It was a wonderful experience!!Those 5 days were in Xi’an and Pingyao. On the second day, we would go to Terracotta Warriors and Horses, Mausoleum of Qin Shi Huang, Little Wild Goose Pagoda, Xi’an Museum, Great Mosque and Muslim Quarter. These places are as amazing as you can imagine, and our Terracotta Warriors experience was unforgettable. On the third day, we visited the ancient city of Pingyao, the Rishengchang Exchange Hall, the Armed Escort Company Museum, the county government offices and the Pingyao City Wall. It was wonderful to have the opportunity to interact and engage with such Chinese culture in Pingyao.
