Visit China: Beijing To Xian Tours

Xian, China is where you have to go to see the Terracotta warriors of the First Emperor. An online buddy sent me more details of Beijing to Xian tours after a previous post.

Other than being one of the most important and interesting Chinese archaeological finds in current history, the terracotta warrior is also one of the most iconic image of our times.

How many of you remember a love story movie based on the terracotta warriors filmed in Hong Kong? This was when Hong Kong was a powerhouse in the movie and entertainment business in the days of the 4 Heavenly Kings.

I look at the statues and I wonder if there were rumors of the First Emperor turning his loyal soldiers into terracotta statues to safeguard his legacy.
