Now if you're ready, let's go and take a look at another must-see-place!
You've most probably heard this place but it's spectacular so I must mention it again!
It is Chinese Qin Dynasty Emperor Qin Shi Huang's tomb situated at Xi'an (known as Chang'an before Ming dynasty) and it's one of the oldest city in Shaanxi province in China.
Qin Shu Huang ascended the throne when he's 13years old, and he started to build his own tomb right after.
Total mausoleum area of the Qin Shi Huang is of 50 square kilometers, including the Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses and the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor.
The figures vary in height according to their roles, with the tallest being the generals. The figures include warriors, chariots and horses. Current estimates are that in the three pits containing the Terracotta Army there were over 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 cavalry horses, the majority of which are still buried in the pits. Other terracotta non-military figures were also found in other pits and they include officials, acrobats, strongmen and musicians.
Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses is listed as World Heritage Site （世界遗产名录） in 1987 and it's also labeled as one of the Eighth Wonder of the World （世界第八大奇迹）!
Let's look at the video! Enjoy!
