  • This was an unexpected side trip on our way to the Terracotta Warriors site, but well worth it. Only downside was the Chinese groups tour guides use of an amplified sound system. Each. Three od#r four...  more »
  • This is a site near Xian, where there is original matriarchal village that was excavated in 1960s. Though it is not far from the city center, but very few visitors. Actually it can be visited en route...  more »

  • Remaims of a 6000 year old village. Very well preserved. The museum is excellent especially the hologram animation and the large screen. I wonder how this is made.
  • Turned out to be quite an interesting and modern museum. The "kids" area is very interesting, and for 20 yuan they can help you make fire (and light a torch) using prehistoric techniques!
  • This is the sight where the Chinese government got there Olympic mascot inspiration from! Also there are 2 new excavation pits and you can see body's slowly emerging out of the ground
  • 不错,就是跟团太匆忙了
  • 陈列的文物数量较少,相对于门票价格来说不怎么划算。如果游览的时间不多,大可放弃这个景点选择其他地方。
