If you are in Xian it's a must do. This is very special. It is also busy and full of tourists. We went with a tour through our hostel, so we didn't have to wait in line for tickets etc. and that was well worth it.

A wonderfully well managed piece of history. The Chinese government is to be praised for the preservation of this site. Spent an entire day there and would return to China just to see this again. If you can visit only one historic site in China, this is the must one.

This is a scenic area only. There used to be a small museum with a few Terracotta Warriors in, which appears to have been moved to the local city (according to other posts). The scenic area is perfectly nice, but not worth a 50 min drive from Jinan. I went not reading the reviews in detail. Oops. Had a nice... More

This is an amazing place. Having seen same on TV nothing prepares you for the real thing. It's fantastic!!!!!!also the whole site is very well laid out as a museum and very assessable and well organised and managed. Also you can watch the restorers at work. You could spend a lot of time here, so do leave yourself at least... More

If you're in Xi'an, you should definitely head to the Terra Cotta warriors. If you're not in Xi'an already, I probably wouldn't bother unless you've been dreaming of seeing them or you're really into archaeology. It's not that they aren't really cool, they are, but the attractions in China just don't give you as much information as you'd probably like.... More

Amazing experience to see the magnitude of the excavation , the quality of the terracotta warriors, history behind it, and what is being done to reassemble them. Must see when visiting China. Very crowded though at the site.

As my title said, simply stunning. The sheer number of statues and the detail is amazing. Anyone who comes to China and misses this has wasted money.

We searched for the place, asked many local people including the cab driver, none of them could tell us the exact location. The cab driver even didn't hear about this place. Finally the police/guard told us that it was closed.

We had a choice to go to Tibet or the Warriors. So glad we chose the warriors. Although it is sad to see how the warriors were destroyed, it is inspiring to see how meticulously they put them back together. There was just a small group of us and it was not a very busy day. I do wish I... More

Not the easiest place to get to unless with organised trip or as I did hire a driver for the day. 2-3 hours needed to see it all and it is not like a European tourist attraction bit disorganised but still easy to make your way around without having to pay extra for a guide. Love led my visit should... More
