I had low expectations of the Terracota Warriors - how cool can clay figures be? But after seeing the Museum I would say these are the true 8th wonder of the world and are more impressive even than the Great Wall. The sheer number of warriors, their age, the detail of each (each one is unique and signed / dated by the creator) and the restoration process to rebuild is incredible. The fact that the Chinese are still making new discoveries in this area prove that that there is more to find in the coming decades and I cannot wait to go back in 20 years to see what else has been found. This is well worth the trip to Xian. Don't plan on spending any more than 2 days in Xian - seeing the warriors and biking the wall is about all you need to do - and of course the Muslin Quarter at night!! Add this to your bucket list if it is not already on it!
