Terracotta Army Holiday
Terracotta Army holidays from the adventure holiday experts.
In 1974, a group of peasants unearthed one of the biggest archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. Imagine their surprise when instead of finding an underground lake they uncovered over 8,000 life-sized terracotta warriors. Beautifully crafted with astonishing attention to detail the soldiers had been lying there for over 2,000 years guarding the tomb of the first Chinese Emperor in the ancient city of Xi’an.
Exodus has been operating trips to China since 1990 and has a long history with a country now much in need of international help due to the recent terrible earthquake. The city of Chengdu in Sichuan province near the epicentre of the recent earthquake is where we visit the world famous Panda research breeding centre. Through Plan International, Exodus is providing its clients the opportunity to raise funds to rebuild this shattered region. If you would like to donate, please visit our Just Giving page.
