Seeing the Terra-Cotta Warriors and Horses is a "bucket-list" experience -- something I have wanted to do ever since reading the initial National Geographic article on the excavations. Lots of tour groups (both foreigners and Chinese) visit the museum as do many independent Chinese travelers. The museum contains several large excavation pits as well as a building housing excavated bronze... More

This just gets better each time I come here. Of course there are more and more people too. The main building is crowded, so time your visit accordingly. It is an incredible treasure to see. Also, the on-site restaurant is amazing with 2 types of freshly made noodles. Lastly, you can bargain down the vendors of the small terra-cotta warriors... More

Xian is a bit off the beaten path in China and I've long wished to travel there to see the TC Warriors. We finally made it and we're glad we did. The warriors were down in three pits rather than being at eye level. Some were still buried and others were in various stages of being reassembled by archaeologists. What... More

To sum it up: go with a guide and go early On the recommendations from some colleagues we arranged for a guide for a day (see separate review), and it was definitely worth it - especially here at the Terra-cotta army as otherwise it is just as looking at the pictures here, i.e. not much added value, but the guide...

Must see if you're in Xi'an. It's a bit crowded but it's just amazing to see that this was built thousands of years ago.

Well, I've seen them! Okay, they ARE interesting. But after about an hour and after having walked up the hill to see them, by the third building, I was ready to leave. Are they worth the 150 Yuan($AU25)? That's up to you to decide. Still, how can you come home from Xi'an and say you didn't see them?

Like most people, this has been high on our list of things to do whilst living in China. The scale of the place and the quality of the warriors is amazing but you can't get close and all views are top down. I would have loved an eye level view at some point. I would strongly recommend starting in pit... More

Very interesting and inspiring. The sense of history and the stories filled us with awe. Excavations are still happening and many sights have been left untouched because there is a need to preserve the colours. So there is a feeling of great respect as well.
