Just came back from Xian, I read the comments from Trip Advisor so hired a local tour + a car with driver to find the "Qing Eastern Tomb". And both of them have never heard about the place but searched on-line to find the breif direction. The "Qing Eastern Tomb" is the burial place of Qing Shih Huang (the first... More

The museum was well presented and interesting and it seems there is a lot more to be found in the future. Somewhere to eat would have been helpful but it was cold and not busy

This site is equal in many ways to the find at the terracotta warrior site. There are smaller statues of non army court people and servants and animals that were dug around the Tang emperor's tomb.

As you climb to the top, just have a think about the wonders that lie within. This Emporer was paronoid about tomb robbers and because of that has supposed to have took some incredible stuff with him. I hope it's within my lifetime that I get to see this tomb opened.

What I liked most was those stunning sandal wood pillars soaring 30 feet high , and not 1or 2 but 20 all of them. I measured the girth, and it took 3 of us holding arms to encircle it. Rest of the things , were of course as majestic as you would expect.

We were short on time so we couldn't climb the hill after the "Spirit Way" walkway, so we took a horse ride up to the East Gate entrance area of the tomb. You can't go in or see anything besides the hill on top of the tomb, but the panoramic view is amazing. It cost us 100 RMB for a... More

The park with ornate animal statues is beautifully groomed and one of the most peaceful and reverent places we've seen in our 8 day visit to China

This site is humongous and is made up of five viewing points. We paid for the first point and had our driver drive us up the hill on which Tang Dynasty Stone statues are located. The site is spotless and well maintained and we also chanced upon a local guide who showed us one of the cave houses located in... More

Our guide, Michael Yang, made our visit to the Terracotta Warrior Museum, and later to downtown Xi'an a very memorable occasion. Michael is very fluent in English and he was able to tell us the not only the history regarding the warriors but also give us an overview of past and present China. We had made the mistake of visiting... More
