Go after 1pm to avoid morning coaches. All the building are close to eachother. Museum is excellent. Avoid the hawkers

“fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

Really amazing experience seeing the terra-cotta warriors. Book a tour guide when you arrive at the location and you'll have a nice overview. Beware it's a bit of a walk to the main museums from the parking lot.

“Fascinating - avoid crowds and go in November.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We spent 2 nights in Xi'an to see the warriors. Fantastic experience. If you hate crowds visit in November as we found it very quiet in China terms. There were no other westerners and no big tour groups. We hired a private car with driver and guide which was easy and reasonably priced. That way you learn a great deal about the history of the city on the 1 hour trip there.

“Have a guide otherwise it is VERY boring”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Be prepared to wait for one hour just to get a glimpse of men made of clay. If you are not into history or acient china than go to Mc Donalds instead. If you decide to go anyway than get a guide becuase there are a lot of other things.

“just like you dreamt it would be!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

my only complaint is that i couldn't get closer to the statues. I wish that there were at least one or two sculptures that you could look at up close without the glass, etc. Anyway, some VIPs were getting a tour while we were there and they were able to walk right out to the sculptures in pit one. Advice is to take public bus from downtown or hire a car and driver to save time by being taken to the tourist traps.
