    13:30: Visit a local family living in a Traditional Cave and learn about the local farmer’s lives. It’s hard to picture someone actually living in a cave, but people do indeed. In fact, it was pretty popular back just a few decades ago in Shaanxi Province. Believe or not, the cave dwelling was comfortable. It’s very cool in the hot summer and warm in the winter. Some people in the northern part of Shaanxi province still live in such a way today.

    14:30: Set out to the Hanyangling Museum, also called Jingdi’s tomb. It is located at Zhangjiawan Village, about 25 kilometers north of Xian City. It is the joint tomb of Liu Qi, a notable emperor of the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-220AD), and his empress, Empress Wang. It was built in the year 153 AD, and covers an area of 20 square kilometers. This mausoleum combines modern technology, ancient civilization, historical culture and garden scenery in the largest museum in China.

    17:00: Your day tour comes to an end. Your guide will accompany you back to your hotel.
