Getting there is relatively easy, a 1-hour 8rmb (1-way) bus ride from Xi'an Railway Station gets my friend and myself to this place. Buses are easily noticeable as there are signs plastered on the buses on where it is heading to. I paid a 60rmb entrance fee (low season, student price). I assume they accept any student card so you... More

If you can do only one visit in China you should go to terra cotta, wonderful place and incredible history about 250 years BC, if you are lucky you may meet the farmer who has discovered the site in 70s, choose a late winter day when there is no public holidays and cool weather. No need to think too much... More

The archological area is enormous and incredible. Don't miss the museum with the bronze chariot of the emperor and the one of his general. Same class importance as Mona Lisa or Tuthankamon mask. The souvenir shop arriving on the left well before the exibition area has an excellent expresso coffee.

I visited in December 2014 with my husband. We loved our visit and thought it was easy (and cheap!) to do on our own. We caught the tourism bus 5 (number 306) from just outside the train station and took it for about an hour until the last stop. Get up early and try to catch one of the first... More

Its surprising that they covered the original pit areas and made it into a museum. The fact that further unearthed terra cotta warriors exist in the undug areas of the pits makes it even more intriguing.

What can I say - the museum is amazing: just check out the bronze carriage - but the pits where the 'army' can be seen is even more impressive than you expect it will be.

This was bigger, more interesting and a much better visit than I had even anticipated and I was very excited to be visiting. Get a guide - otherwise there are documentary tapes to use with headphones. Great value for money and 3 hours of incredible facts and sites which will stay with me always. Not convinced about the 'supposed' farmer... More
