The rows of soldiers go on and on and it is hard to explain the vast amounts of space they dominate. Apparently we haven't discovered anywhere near the numbers that exist which makes the attraction all the more interesting to experience and take in. It is well worth the journey and they are so life like a little intimidating.

Negatives: -: Really really busy. -: 120¥! Ridiculously expensive. -: Vague English information boards. -: Needlessly pushy and rude tourists. -: Tour guides speak great English... although they do not seem to understand the commonly used phrase...

there is this huge build-up of expectation of visiting one of the wonders of the world. in that sense, it is a bit of a disappointment. the scale is not what one expects. the pits are all indoors, much smaller than the numbers would indicate, till one realises the numbers are estimates based on the projected size of the site....

Everybody has read or heard about the terracotta warriors but when you walk into the hall it blows you away. Amazing sight and far more than you expect. A real sense of history and awe.

These soldiers are worth seeing . You must remember it is packed in there so you need to take plenty of time to look . They are certainly amazing We were a little disappointed that so many were damaged . Some in a glass case are amazing as they were found intact on excavation. Wonderful site to behold and one...

The museum is stored in a very large building that made me think of an airplane hanger. Yet once you see the sheer number of warriors and other professions lined up for battle, you forget all the surroundings. Like many things that I saw in China, it must have taken thousands of people and a long time to construct this.

I came during spring festival. It was a bit cold but luckily not that many people. We could freely walk around. I didn't expect anything from this sight seeing and i was so impressed after all. Got really good pictures and fantastic time with local chinese friends. A memory of a lifetime

This was the sight I was most looking forward to, and it did not disappoint. Absolutely awesome sight...albeit a little crowded. I would suggest paying the 100 to 200 CY to have the guide, as a lot of the exhibits do not have english signs. Also, our guide knew a lot of trivia and local knowledge about other sites. Honestly,... More

We were lucky enough to see the few warriors that have colour as well as the huge puts full of the warriors which they are still discovering. I highly recommend a visit to this extraordinary site. I really enjoyed the day there and my warrior which I have at home. If your tour takes you to a factory before it... More

Wanted to visit this place since I was 10 years old. Great experience and definitely wowed. Don't go to Xi'an if you're not planning to see Terra-cotta Warriors!
