Arrived at the Warriors ticket office on a Monday @ 4:58pm Sept. 3rd, 2012. Just in time b/c they stop selling tickets at 5:00pm, but don't kick you off property until 6:30-7:00pm. No one was there, but a total about 10 people (including me & my tourguide). The guards had to kick us out LOL. I hired a private tour... More

This has to be seen; it is fantastic. Getting there from Beijing is a bit of a struggle but worth it. I was short on time and really wanted to visit so caught an overnight train from Beijing and then flew back on the evening and didn't feel like I was pressed for time as I had 3 hours around...

The terracotta warriors are one of the wonders of the world. Unfortunately the rest of China knows this and they will be there too!

Nothing prepares you for the Terracotta army. The size of this archeologic site staggers you. Sure, it's becoming commercialized, but the amazing scope of this World Heritage site blows you away. The man signing your guide book is the farmer who found the site, looking for a well in the 1970's. (Not a real pleasant guy, and doesn't want his... More

If you are a human beeing, you have to go there and see them! It is difficult to get there, specially because nobody speaks english in China or even understand what you write. But they are awsome, the place is beautiful and clean.

Truly an amazing experience. The government has done a good job of protecting the warriors and making it easy and comfortable for visitors to see the excavated areas.

Absolutely amazing historical site to visit in Xi'an. The separate pits put on display the improvement of technology for the unearthing of the soldiers over time - hopefully new developments will allow for continued digging. We had our own tour guide who walked us through and gave us great information as we toured the site. Our group of four was... More

A bit dissapointing because of the heat and thousand tourists in August. Must go in winter months and then you will enjoy this extraordinary site. The warriors, archers, horses etc are all protected under a gigantic roof and you can walk around, take pictures (need a zoom) and enjoy this unique place in the world. Remember not in summer!!!
