What an amazing place - the size and scale is enormous - and awesome ... it takes your breath away. Leave plenty of time to walk the full distance around the enclosure and see the thousands of life sized warriors and horsemen - an absolute marvel. SO glad to have visited and so well presented

They call it the eighth wonder of the world, and they're right. If it isn't on your bucket list, add it. What's so special about a few thousand reconstructed life-size clay soldiers? Simply this: you can try to imagine them, but you have to see them to really get it. Think about the most impressive thing you've ever seen -... More

A great experience being immersed in the amazing history of the area and seeing these warriors up close and personal. Very good to tick off the bucket list. Only downside on our visit were the massive local crowds and everyone jostling for photo space. Be prepared to get squashed.

Go on your own. Take the bus from the Eastern Railway Station, and you will have all the time you want to explore all the pits and look at everything in detail. It's worth the trip.

The Terracotta Warriors is one of those places you visit once just because. The thing is we payed 300y for two tickets and realized that no matter how grand the army is, it's not much of an experience. You just snap some photos and then you're done. China has so many other places where you get better value for money... More

I visited the museum in the afternoon, after the Huaqing hot spring in the morning. It was raining when I was there. Good thing is the pits are sheltered, of course. Enterprising locals would sell umbrellas at strategic locations. The main pit housing the terracotta warriors was very crowded, especially at the front viewing gallery. I needed to squeeze my...

The entire area is really worth a visit, especially as everything is pretty spacious. So even in busy times you can have a great look at the warriors and get to know the story about the mausoleum.

By now you know you are going to see Xi'an's most famous sight. Here are some pointers to make the trip even better: -try to watch the NOVA special (rent or buy it) Emperor's Ghost Army before you visit. It will really help you appreciate what you are seeing. The 20 minute video at the museum is of LOUSY quality... More

Fantastic place to visit. A definite must see. It is awe inspiring! If you go as part of a pre-booked tour then you miss all the queues to get in. Beware of the crowds, it is extremely busy and you get pushed about by the chinese tourists.

Worth the trip but recommend doing it individually, Went on the official tour bus - too long. Didn't want to go to a ceramics factory; didn't want an indifferent chinese lunch (do not buy drinks there - incredibly expensive), not enough tour time when I did get there. Left before the tomb tour - had enough and caught taxi back... More
