Known the world over as the home of the impressive Terracotta Warriors, Xian’s popularity as a tourist destination has soared since the discovery of the stone army. Fly to Xian with Cathay Dragon for great inflight entertainment and frequent services to this fascinating city in Shaanxi Province.
You will be amazed by the sheer scale and might of the Terracotta Army. Spread across several pits, each soldier has slightly different features and varied clothing, hairstyles, and weapons.
