Being a historical treasure of China, we made time to visit the Terra Cotta museum. Even though we were in Beijing, we really made time for it, we were even excited. We booked a soft sleeper train, a train where you can sleep (there are...More
I remember seeing this on television in 1974 when it was discovered, and always wanted to visit.
We spent hours here and would recommend an early visit and go out of season. We had visited the factory first so understood the difference between officers and...More

I understand Hong Kong citizens can also enjoy discount at tourist sites like museum if he is 60 or 65 (at different discount rate) and at 70 is usually free. According to my experience the different discount rate varies from province to province from 60 and 65. Hope this helps.
