You won't regret a visit here but allocate at least half a day. I wasn't expecting the sheer numbers of the Terracotta Warriors and they said only 60% had been excavated. When you enter the No1 hall, the sheer numbers and size will astound you. The hall is huge, and there are two others where they are still excavating, but... More

Absolutely amazing to see these life like works. Certainly worth the trip trip China. Xian is also a very interesting city recommend to spend a couple of days there as well. The City has the original wall still in tact around it.

We had only a very short time in town, but so glad we were able to fit in a quick stop at this site. We were almost the only people there and could have easily enjoyed a half a day or more if we didn't have to catch a plane. It is possible to walk right into the tomb--multiple rooms... More

What a surprise to find this collection of small Terracotta warriors! They are about 18 inches tall and each one is an individual work of art. Don't confuse these with the much larger (and more famous) warriors at Xian, China, but don't miss them either. I'm very impressed to see how the visitors center displays the 3 earthen trenches containing... More

I think I may have messed up my earlier submission by not putting in the correct number of dots for the excellent service we received from Dragon Delight Tours and our guide, Tina, in arranging for us to meet during our day there earlier this month with one of the two surviving farmers who discovered the warriors back in 1974....

We visited the warriors as part of an organised day trip around xuzhou. The exhibit is fantastic and the English speaking guide was very informative. Amazing to see the different stages of recovering the warriors. The attached museum is really interesting. It wasn't very busy, and easy to access all the exhibits. Don't miss it.

This was a very nice little surprise to visit this location. Although not as impressive as the larger and more lifelike Terracotta warriors at Xian, this site is definitely worth a stop if you are in Xuzhou. The museum is very clean and modern and has many interesting exhibits. The only scam was the park had these shuttle drivers who... More

We went to Xuzhou and found this attraction accessbile, interesting, and informative. It's a very nice complex to walk around. We walked up to the temple at the top of the hill and the ticket was well worth it for everything it included. It provided a nice contrast to the exhibit in Xi'an and was definitely less touristy.

I have been waiting 17 years to get to see this amazing 8th wonder of the world and it didn't disappoint. A truly remarkable exhibition. The strange feeling I had was that we were not looking at hundreds of terracotta figures but figures of real people. i suppose in a way that was true as the exhibition is in essence... More
