“Amazing site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2014 NEW

Listen to the story of Qing Shi Wang, and why he built this site, and get to know some of the history is simply amazing. Every soldier is unique, own face, like real people. Found out also their swords were better than what we have in the modern world, the technique of making a sword then was not inherited by anyone. Stories like Qing Shi Wang is lying in a tomb that protected by mercury, Xiang Yu came and burnt part of the site and etc are amazing stories.

“A Must...plan for the day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2014 NEW

This was truly spectacular. Be prepared to walk. The walk is long to get to the museum but it was worth it.

“A Must See Attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2014 NEW

A visit to the Warriors is a must if you visit this part of China. There are 3 pits and exhibition halls where you can learn about how they were found and excavated. There is no need to book an organised trip as it is so easy to get there on public transport. Go to the main railway station and walk to the far right hand side where you will see a bus with the number 5 or 306. These are the official buses and only cost around 7 yuan per person each way. Do not get onto any other bus which local touts will try and entice you onto, you take the bus to its last stop which is a terminus at the Warriors. It is a really worthwhile trip and one which should take you about 3 hours to walk around.
