“History on an Epic Scale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Saw the Terracotta Army in June 2012 and was blown away by the sheer scale of it. Nothing quite prepares you for number of warriors or the intricacy of the designs or the vast size of the tomb.

Not wanting to spoil it for those with a hunger to see it...

If you can get to Xi'an, you have to see it!

“Do see it if you have the chance...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

So after unifying China and building it's great wall, the first Emperor of China convinced himself that his wise men had cracked the code to eternal life. Building himself an army to continue to serve him in the underworld, the whole works was burnt down by a peasant rebellion a year after his death.

What you see today is what was identically discovered by a farmer digging a well. The farmer is now the manager of the museum facility and if you're lucky he might be there to sign museum books for you.

Altogether a lovely experience, I gave it a Very Good instead of Excellent because of the crowds you have to work with being there.
