Why are the Terra Cotta Warriors of the Qin Dynasty special? The Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses were buried 2,200 years ago in underground vaults. Their purpose was to guard the nearby tomb of Qin Shi Huang, the emperor who first united China in the 3rd century BC. In 1974, farmers digging a well accidentally discovered this site. The awe-inspiring discovery is one of the most significant finds in the 20th century. Combining China's chief attractions, natural scenery, and its many wonders, this tour is an excellent way to see China's best cities at an incredible value. Modern cities, quaint villages, picturesque lakes, gardens and scenery, outstanding cuisine and world famous shopping - we will help you make the most of a trip to China!
