I cannot adequately describe this extraordinary site, wonderous in its vastness and history. The warriors are so life like in appearance and the hugh number of them and horses too is staggering....... truly amazing. Another wonder of the world. One note, as the area is huge and the crowds are huge so be prepared to walk and push in around... More

The terracotta army should not be listed under Jinan. It is not in Jinan, or even near Jinan, it is very close to Xi'an. I went to Xi'an and Jinan in May and both are interesting but quite different. Yes, go to visit the terracotta army, it is well worth visitng. But if in Xi'an, the most important this to... More

Gotta go if you are visiting China . Better than just seeing it in pictures. They did a great job with creating a pretty garden setting.. Avoid the sellers outside the gates...

We were in China a few years sago...Beijing, Hong Kong, the Great Wall, and further north to the peasant villages. The BEST place we visited was the "museum" that held the TerraCotta soldiers and horses. They are still digging up these treasures. The condition of these artifacts are excellent, seeing that they have been buried for many years. Work is... More

This site is amazing. We spent several hours looking around the 2000 warriors on display and then found out that the other buildings contain thousands of warriors which have not been uncovered yet. The facilities are excellent and the history is fabulous. A "must do" in China

This is a extremely interesting exhibit. The building that houses the warriors is about as big as two football stadiums. Discovered by farmers who were working in their fields, they reported their find to the Chinese government and it became a spectacular tourist destination. If you Google this you can read all about this most unique destination. I highly recommend... More

If you are in Xian it's a must do. This is very special. It is also busy and full of tourists. We went with a tour through our hostel, so we didn't have to wait in line for tickets etc. and that was well worth it.

A wonderfully well managed piece of history. The Chinese government is to be praised for the preservation of this site. Spent an entire day there and would return to China just to see this again. If you can visit only one historic site in China, this is the must one.
