Location: Xian, China

MapThe Terra Cotta Warriors are truly amazing - each one of the over 6000 found has unique features - including facial features, body shape (e.g leg size) and clothes (e.g. shoes of different sizes and shapes). The horses and two charriots are also amazing with terrific detail. It is hard to believe that they went to so much trouble - they were even painted! And Xian is a very nice city. Definately worth the trip on the (very posh!) overnight train (11.5hr) from Beijing. It was even worth being "stuck" here with the snow storms blocking the trains :)
