Based on the feedbacks of customers and the references from the Internet, I went to the following scenic spots, which ranges from great to good.
As the eighth wonder of the world, it just deserves its name. The part we can see nowadays is just three ten thousandth of the whole Mausoleum of Emperor QinShihuang. That’s to say, if we can excavate the entire mausoleum, which will cover an area about the sizes of two Macao. And till then, it will not be the eighth wonder any more, but will be the first wonder of the whole world.

Everlasting Regret is the best real-scene musical extravaganza. Regarding Lishan Mountain as its natural stage background, the performance of it is held in the Huaqing Pool and the main idea is based on the love story between Li Longji (the emperor of Tang Dynasty) and his beloved concubine Yang Yuhuan. The design of the lighting, stage effects and fireworks are designed and manufactured by the top designers from America and Hong Kong. After each show, the cost for the lighting effects would reach fifty thousand yuan. After seeing the poignant story and impressive effects, many tourists were moved to tears. Having engaged in the tourism industry for many years and also seen many theme performances, I think Everlasting Regret is the number one.
