Sleep with the Terracotta warriors

A hotel apartment designed wholly with Terracotta warrior figurines is a hit in Xi'an, China.

Besides the real Terracotta warrior, tourists have stormed the apartment in the city centre since it started operation in 2008.

Its owner Guo Zhihua said the Terracotta warrior figurines are present at every corner of the apartment - the kitchen, the bedrooms and even the bathrooms.



"A lot of people have come to tour the place, but only a handful of them, mostly foreigners, decided to spend their nights here.

"Many are scare of the place," he laughed, adding a baby started crying the moment he entered the premises.



Guo said the apartment has three units that are adorned with 55 human-size Terracotta warriors and numerous figurine replicas.

The Terracotta Army is a form of funerary art buried with the First Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, in 210 - 209 B.C.

They were only discovered in 1974 by a group of farmers digging a water well.
