I'm so glad we made the extra spot to come here and visit the warriors. You read about them or see on t.v but in person it's mind blowing. The main building is so huge and I just can't get how many warriors there is and also they are still digging them up and putting them back together.

Has to be seen to be believed, even when you already know the story andf have seen the pictures nothing prepares you for the scale of the place and the fine things to see.

As usual, the Chinese have managed to make a huge, very attractive area into a huge attraction - with parklands, shops and lots of paving. The warriors themselves are housed in their own mausoleum - lots of marble for those who enjoy it. I went on a very hot, crowded summers' day and was overwhelmed by the crowds so it... More

Books don't do justice to what you see with your own eyes. Amazing!! Hall one the main building is wow, some of the locals can get a tad pushy, but when in rome do the same and push back, it's seems that's the way of the land. Do expect to get some great photo's Do expect your personal space to... More

Luckily I visited on a week day in October so it was not so crowded. I shared a driver and car with another hotel guest from Xian. This a good way to be able to get there early and avoid any tour groups, that arrive by 10am. This is just amazing that only 10% of what it known to be... More

We had a wonderful guide who explained a lot of Chinese history and the history of this find. It is difficult to believe 700,000 people worked on this tomb so many years ago.

it is awesome that we could stand so close to the qin's after life army. pit 1 is just a tiny part of the warriors buried. totally restored figures in pit 3 and bronze carriage in gallery were impressive. we went there early to avoid crowds, and take the golf cart instead of long walk to the pits.

Xian is a historical place & birthplace of a single ruled China. Emperor QinShihuang's great terracotta warriors & his tomb are located here. It is said that he prepared this huge battalion to guard him for his after life. You can make your way there on your own because there are many guides at the entrance providing services for a...

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip the the Terra Cotta Warrior museum. The grounds, the warriors & the film we watched were very good. My husband has wanted to visit the warriors since the first time he saw them in the film at EPCOT at Walt Disney World. He thought it was one of the best things we visited while living... More

Visiting the site of the Terra-cotta Warriors was a long time dream come true. The city of Xi'an/Chinese government has done an exceptional job in building the site for tourists to view all three areas of the Terra-cotta Warriors. It is well designed and clean. The magnitude of the actual display can only be understood by physically visiting this site.... More
