Traveling to an Amazing Ancient City
What to knowAnd the city has always played an important role for the country and their military efforts. The city is split up into three main natural areas, due to the mountains and plains. This city is home to the famous and important historical monument, the Terracotta Army. It consists of hundreds and hundreds of real life sized models that are made with the tiniest design details in mind. The museum is actually located pretty close to the Tomb of Qin Shihuang. The models were made in respect, and to be buried with Qin Shihuang. These life sized models are representative at how successful and powerful the first emperor was at uniting China, and how much the people loved and respected him. And the most amazing thing about the monument is how detailed the models are. From the lines on their foreheads to the perfect proportions, these models were definitely made to look real.
What to doOne of the things that you should do while you are here is visit the Ancient City Wall. It stretches and goes around the old city, and is one of the first things that you will notice when you visit Xian.
