Xian

We took a train out to Xian which is close to the Terracotta Army which we planned on visiting. Xian is a big city and has a few sights worth seeing, like the Bell Tower where we saw a traditional Chinese music performance and the Muslim Quarter with lots of markets, street food and the Great Mosque. The pollution was pretty bad the whole time we were here, and really bad on the day we left.

  3. Xian is the very beautiful place in China and it related to Terracotta Army. A lot of pictures regarding that place have this website which contain some basic good content. I especially like the Clay Horses Pulling. writers-house.com/business-writing/resume-writing-services/
