This site is close to the airport and as I had decided to take a car to the airport, when I was leaving Xian, I got the driver to let me stop here for a couple of hours at no extra cost. The day I went there were hardly any other tourists - just a few Chinese and a small... More

The ticket to Terra-Cotta already include the tomb. It's basically a park as the tomb is unearthen. No need to make a trip here unless you plan to see terra-cotta.

A spectacular site, off the beaten track but is the perfect complement to the Terracotta Warriors, as this is a complete excavation of an imperial tomb site. There are two museums on site, one housing a great selection of artifacts, including beautiful complete sets of terracotta animals and figures from the tombs, largely intact. Signage is very good, lots of... More

Near the airport. A quiet place not many tourist. This place is just not as grand and impressive compared to terracotta warrior. Will finish walking the whole place in 1 hour. The exhibit area is dark and not easy to take a good picture.

A knowledgeable tour guide is important if you don't know the Chinese history, hence, it's great to have a tour guide in order not to waste your time. We enjoyed the trip

Hardly anyone gets to this outstanding archaeological site and museum, It's a pity, because it is beautifully presented and highly informative, and has much more about daily life than the more famous terracotta warriors. A very few organised tours will take you there, or you can do what we did and go under your own steam for a few Renminbi.... More

When the Emperor Jingdi saw what the subjects of Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi of Terra Cotta Warrior fame did to his army – they smashed and burned all the life size statues – I'm sure he thought to himself “Hmm, maybe when I build my mausoleum, because I am the Emperor and NEED one, I shouldn't use so much money...

Just a hill and inside a big hole! To me it was a waste of time! Read about it and you will be ahead of the game and save some yuans...
