More surprisingly, you will be amazed by the supreme craftsmanship since none of them owns the same facial expressions, hairstyles, figures and even uniforms.

Continue to admire the ancient Xi'an City Wall, the best preserved and most complete military defensive wonder extant in China that has successfully guarded the city for nearly 600 years. Stand atop to overlook old Xi'an and marvel at the deep-rooted historical vibe endowed with aged bricks, gate towers and watchtowers.
