You may (have) come to Xi'An for the terracotta warriors - but this, historically, is absolutely (more) worthy if History means to you - witness a critical piece of chinese XXe century history - the Xi'An incident.

It is the place where mutinous Nationalist soldiers captured Chiang Kai Shek resulting in the communists living to take over and turn China into a tyrranical government ten years later.
