A must visit. Excavations still ongoing. Its commendable that such efforts have been made to excavate, restore and preserve the history. Though can be done solo, maybe better to do in tours considering the availability of services of guide, fast ticket availability and access. Need about 3-4 hours to have decent look into the 3 buildings.

The trip to see the terra-cotta warriors and horses was one we were looking forward to with great anticipation. This site did not disappoint. The first building we entered was huge as they built an airplane hanger around the warriors. The dig was continuing as was ongoing repair to those warriors who needed a little TLC. A fantastic site and... More

Simply a must see in China and deservedly so. Well set out, easy to visit and fascinating. The best thing is that it is a work in progress so if you come back in the future it will be different.

Under something that seems an hangar roof the terra cotta army is waitng you with its soldiers, horses, each different from another.. The "museum" extend in several buildings.. Not all has been excavated and you can see university students trying to piece together what has been excavated.. Probably over the years there has been soil shift so many warriors are... More

Love the history and the warriors, took some great pics, two major warnings: #1 be careful of the merchants outside selling their goods, if you decide to buy bargain down the price by at least 80%... Also the "farmer young" signing the books in the souvenir shop is fake! I spotted 3 different Chinese dudes signing the same book in... More

An amazing experience to see. Clearly a busy place and you need to be patient to see the ruins, since a lot of people visit here.

I have to say overall that I am very glad I have seen this attraction. I made a special trip to Xi'an from Beijing for 2 days just so I could see this. I am glad I saw it. I took the 306 bus from the Xi'an railway station which cost me 7 CNY. Very reasonable for a 1 hour... More

Yes, there is a phalanx of vendors you have to negotiate to get to the museums. Not always very clear how to do that. I was alone and not with a group - so I sorta followed others. The experience of the warriors and horses was simply amazing. I still haven't figured out why this site went undiscovered for centuries... More
