The Big Wild Goose Pagoda attracts numerous visitors for its fame in the Buddhist religion and its simple but appealing style of construction. It is rated as a National Key Cultural Relic Preserve. One of the pagoda's many functions was to hold sutras and figurines of the Buddha that were brought to China from India by the Buddhist translator and traveler Xuanzang.

Later, take a lession to learn Traditional Chinese Painting with your teacher. Traditional Chinese painting has a rich history as an enduring art form and is well known throughout the world. Traditionally, Chinese painting is done on rice paper or thin silk, using a variety of brushes, Chinese ink and dye. Chinese painting covers a variety of subjects: portrait, landscape, flowers, birds, animals, and insects. Traditional Chinese painting is known as “guo hua (国画)”. Like calligraphy, the painting is done using a brush dipped in black or colored ink, usually on paper or silk. The finished work can be mounted on scrolls and hung. Traditional painting has also been done on walls, porcelain and lacquer ware.

Move to Shuyuanmen Ancient Culture Street. It is located south of the Bell Tower in Xi'an, is famous for being the location of Guanzhong Academy. A decorated archway stands at the entrance to the street with 3 golden Chinese characters "Shu Yuan Men" carved on the top, and a striking couplet is engraved on each site of the archway, reading "The Stele Forest Contains National Treasures" and "The Academy Gestates Big Talents". Moreover, Shuyuanmen Street is shopping paradise, it's not like the splendid and majestic ones in Beijing Da Zhalan or modern ones in Shanghai Nanjing Road, very simple. ShuyuanMen Street is flanked by shops and stores, which sell the four treasures of the study (writing brush, ink stick, ink slab and paper).

In the morning, you will be transferred to Terra-cotta Warriors, it takes around 40 minutes for one way. 

Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses Museum is known as "the eighth Wonder of the world", the museum shows a surprisingly high level in sculpture which is listed as the most significant discovery of the 20th century. Up to now, there has discovered a total of 179 accompanying burial pits of different connotations and various shapes in Qinshihuang's Mausoleum area. The discovery of these pits has provided all important significance in the research of the burial system of the Qinshihuang's Mausoleum, the characteristics structures and characteristics of the burial pits. However. What makes people feel amazing is that of all the burial pits, none has been found survived from being burnt down.

Chinese emperors usually began to built their tombs when he was alive. Qin Shi Huang began to build his tomb soon after he became an emperor. In ancient China, when a person died, especially someone of high status or with wealth, there would be someone or something to be buried with the dead. The Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses were built to be buried with First Emperor of Qin when he died. It takes about 40 years to finish the whole project. Over 700 thousand labors took part in the construction of the Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses.

Three pits of clay warriors and horses have been discovered for now. These three pits covers an area of over 20 thousand square kilometers. There are all kinds of warriors and horses. The weapons the warriors holding are all made of metal, which can be used in real wars. It indicates that Qin Dynasty’s metallurgical technology and weapon-manufacturing technique already had reached quite a high level. No wonder people say that it is an underground army. The warriors are all well-made and each of them looks different. It seems that each of the warriors are created with a prototype. They just look like real persons with different actions or expressions.

After finished the Terra-cotta Army, drive you back to Xian downtown. 

Later, you'll head for Bell Tower. In Chinese history from Ming Dynasty, each city had a bell tower and a drum tower. The bell was sounded at dawn and the drum at dusk each day in ancient time, a means of telling time. Xian was not exception. The Bell Tower and Drum Tower of Xi'an date back to the Ming dynasty (1368-1644). The two are located in the center of the Xian city connecting the four roads from east, south, west and north within the city wall. Atop the Bell Tower you will have a panoramic view of the Xian City.
