What a fascinating place to visit. Before I went I pictured a few statue-like warriors in formation. I was awed by the scale of three huge digs where there are thousands of figures of men and horse. They are in different stages of restoration, which was very interesting. You can clearly see the progress from a jumbled pile of mixed-up pieces, to partly put together (jigsaw-puzzle style) and held in place by plastic wrap, to fully restored warriors. It was truly impressive and worth the several-day excursion from Shanghai. Also, when you are in Xian, you should also visit the Bell Tower and Drum Tower, which are in the middle of the city, and watch the short, daily presentations there.
