That is the mazing thing in my life to see the Warriors in Xi'an. I wish to see more once i back. I do love that and I can stay whole day in the Museum.

An amazing place. One needs to spend at least half a day to really appreciate this wonder. Be prepared for big crowds.

You feel the sheer weight of history when you walk around at this site. Hundreds and hundreds of life-size and life-like statues take you back to the world of 200 BC, which must have been a strange world where people do things like that. The three halls each have a different identity, where the one with the selected statues was... More

We had very mixed feelings towards this site. After reading many reviews on Tripadvisor, we had quite low expectations towards this attraction, however it pleasantly surprised us. Mind you, it is historic site so set expectation to ''museum type'' visit - there is nothing thrilling about it unless you are into history. Terracotta Warriors are located an hour from Xian....

Why else are you in XIAN. I did find it VERY touristy and crowded. The way in is full of shops hawking everything. Dont buy anything from people inside as it is way over priced. The pits are huge and impressive but again the numbers of tourists are huge. Jingee was much better.

We visited this mausoleum as part of the Viking River Cruise’s Imperia Jewels of China Tour in Xi’an, China. We got there around 9:30 in the morning, so the place wasn’t that crowded yet. This mausoleum was very BIG! We visited three pits and an Exhibition Hall. Each pit is housed in its own building. All were within walking distance... More

Incredible but very hot and stuffy inside. Can pay to walk a shorter distance or be driven to the actual pits.

It's not close to the city center. It took 45 minutes to get there. It was well worth it! Like most attractions in China, it was CROWDED but well done. The pathways, plaza and buildings were well designed. Warriors were spectacular!

If you only go to one place in China make it here. It certainly has the wow factor. I thought the genre at wall would be the highlight of this trip but this was.
