Xian, China: How To Get To The Terracotta Warriors (Video)
It's considered one of the most important archaeological discoveries of the 20th century. That's why so many people flock to Xian, China to see The Terracotta Warriors. There are countless tours to see the life-size clay army. However, you can cut your expenses in half by doing this trip on your own. Pack a lunch, catch the public bus (#306/ #5 -- it's the same bus, but goes by two numbers), and finally buy your tickets on site. This is any easy DIY trip. For complete directions on where to catch the bus to the Terracotta Warriors, watch my video.
One more tip: If you're saving money by skipping a tour to the Terracotta Warriors, then do your research in advance. Signage in the museum isn't very good and you want to know what you're looking at! So read up on the Terracotta Warriors before your trip to make the experience more enjoyable.
