Hey guys Guess where we are at? So last night we decided to come to xi’an and we booked the fast train tickets and After six hours of long ride and we’re in Xi’an right now. We are in Xi’an, we are not in Shanghai. We just took a fast train for 5 hours in the morning. Our train left 8:30 in the morning. we are super tired Xi’an has always been on my bucket list. especially the historical relics. right now we are at what we call Huiming Jie(回民街） it’s a street well-known for Muslim Chinese people. It’s a very busy street in Xi’an So we’re gonna see what really is about So this is like a famous one of the most well-known dishes in Xi’an lamb skewers and meat on pieces of wood sticks tastes like tree taste like tree? so good It’s like Persian lavashak. amazing costs 2 Yuan..so like 15 cents? that’s ridiculous. Xi’an is really cheap. That’s we found.
we found Shanghai is cheap, but compared to Xi’an, Shanghai is super expensive What about Japan? Japan is more expensive than Shanghai. what’s in there? Sesame ohh I love sesame! yeah (Chinese Music) so good hi guys, we are just at the Xi’an metro station we are just buying the tickets to go to the next station over ans there to catch a busto see the terracotta warrior, so I’m super excited. But that’s one of the top attractions in all of China so I can’t wait to see it over there won’t be too many crowds so we can actually see the Terracotta Warriors because other guys said that when they show up around 12:00 we can’t even see the Warriors just see people so hopefully we don’t catch that problem and Yeah, so right now it’s about 8:30 still not as early as we want to go but it takes about an hour and a half to get there from Central Xi’an downtown So stay tuned. got some tickets hi guys, so we are just at pit #1 right now The King tried to fill this huge army so that one day he could tell the world that he has the big army They’re actually constructed by hundreds of small pieces archeologists have dug up and put together and Then the remaining cracks are then filled in And that’s how they’ve restored them. So when you see a full complete Terracotta warrior it actually comprises some 100 small pieces So we just finished that pit 1 and there’s how many pits 4pits. Okay. Pit 1 was the biggest one. Yeah number 2 is 2 under excavation. Yeah, so it’s not completely done. number 3 is Majority is done. Number 4 is almost done. So which one’s this one? number 3 you want to go in? Okay This one is pit 3 We are at Pit 2 now and Pit 2 is kind of still under excavation. So it’s really interesting and really cool that we got to See at the back there there looks like it’s archeological set up over there really really cool to see this here at Pitt – they have warriors sitting on the chariots and horses As you guys can see there’s a lot of grooves On the ground their hooves are left by the army formation and left impression on the ground So once they remove the the Warriors had left these grooves It’s really interesting. it’s the one that has all the ranking officers that the army the kneeling archers, standing archers and generals and any other ranking officers. you see some horses It was really cool to see this as opposed to pit 1 that had all the standing members of the army Excavation going on the parts they found and they wrap it up in this plastic to dry it out and then they’re gonna put pieces together Pretty amazed by this historical relics and this eighth wonders of the world and We’re just about to head home and on our way back. So this billboard Is one not another we discovered These are other all the world leaders at this site. So including president of Italy and president of the United States Bill Clinton 1998 and Portugal, Germany Thailand and there are quite a few So we’re now heading over to the Emperor’s tomb. Emperor that had built terracotta warriors What’s his name? Qin Shi Huang (秦始皇墓） emperor Qin i so I’m gonna check out his tomb so is about a five minute bus ride from the terracotta warrior museum So there’s free shuttle buses, which is really cool. So we took that It’s built in 259 BC 5200 BC. So what happened? It’s like actually Emperor built their tombs before they even died You just have it ready for when they die. They can just buried right away usually one Emperor died you would be buried with Thousands of people thousands of servants. All his wives have to be buried because it’s just basically one dynasty one generation So they they get buried alive. they were buried alive Human sacrifice basically it’s just You were buried with the king and then to be buried with the Emperor and at that time it’s nothing sad about it It’s an honor to be buried with the emperor. as far as I know that the Qin Emperor is not really originally from this place and In Chinese tradition, usually you bury where you were born. the reason why the Emperor decide this place To be buried is because this if you’re looking around the area has a very good Feng Shui (风水） has very good feng shui. it’s facing the mountain and then the other way is the river so it’s very very geographically sound On the our tour bus right now. as you can see, it’s pretty crowded It’s 8 in the morning and we are heading to Huan Shan (mountain Hua) we just hopped onto the cable car the West Peak West Peak cable car is one of the most advanced cable car systems in the world It’s about 4 km long roughly about 20 minutes long hope you guys can enjoy that with us check it out! the hike is actually not too bad lots and lots of stairs but it’s about less than 1 km Yeah, it’s not such a long hike it’s more of just a lot of stairs a lot of people wejust have to kind of find your way through the human ocean(人山人海） We only did the half of the whole trip And unfortunately today the weather is not on our side, rainy and we can’t really do much about this You know it still offers so much beauty the view is just breathtaking We are to the plank in the sky so that’s the most dangerous hike in the entire world Samar’s gonna do it. So let’s clap.let’s encourage her to do it. No, I don’t think I’m doing it But I want to take a look and I’m not sure if we actually get to see got to see people doing it. It might be on the other side of the mountain, but we’re just gonna Go there and see what we can really see back to you
