One of the most impressive things that I have ever seen. I can't decide between this and the colosseum for the number one spot but if you ever get a chance then make sure you jump at it. Great story behind it as well.

The Area has been turned to a nice and relexing parks with sites and places of interest dotted within. But if you expect the same granduer of those in Xi'an, you will be disappointed. These Xuzhou ones, are very different in size and scale. The presentation of the exhibits are also not very well-run and dis-played. But still worth the... More

Great place to visit, a huge area and you need to plan a full day to enjoy the site. Nice parks and areas to relax and enjoy the many sights.

An absolute wonder ..l amazing. M to walk into the main pit and see these warriors is a gift. The thousands and thousands of man hours taken to unearth and then jigsaw these pieces together is a testament to perseverance and archeology. The history of the Warriors is weird and wonderful. My tip is to start at put three then... More

we recently visited this site as part of an organised tour by bus. We also managed to go there on a public holiday in China, so the crowds were huge. Prepare yourself for a long walk to the site of the 3 pits, or you can pay to go by golf cart. Take an umbrella or hat, the sun can... More

Got so much information and interesting facts about ancient China from this exhibit and our guide. I immediately made a PowerPoint about it for my students. One can not visit Xuzhou without learning about the Han dynasty

The terracotta soldiers and horses and everything an emperor would like in afterlife in the shape of terracotta figurines that were found in the graves can be admired in this museum (and in Xuzhou Museum).They are much smaller and fewer, but much livelier than those in Xi’an.

My son and I visited this site primarily to view the terracotta warriors, but was surprised by the beauty of the park and the extensive tomb of the Chu prince. We arrived at 8am and were allowed into the park area. There were a few persons doing Tai Chi and walking. The museums did not open until 8:30am so we... More

It is simply mind boggling that this amazing construction was create 2,000 years ago and lost for so long. I just could not get over the sheer magnitude of the accomplishment of the workers. We had the good fortune to be there when one of the farmers who had dug the well that led to the discovery of the Warriros.... More

The warriors are everything you expect and more. Like the Grand Canyon you really have to see them for yourself to appreciate the skill of the artisans and the incredible number of statues and size of the attraction.
