Our visit to the Terra-cotta warriors was amazing. We toured all the different sites of the Warriors. We ate lunch at one of the restaurants which was very good.

Very interesting (and hot in the summer). A must in Xi'an and worth a visit at least once. Although we visited it 15 years ago it was interesting to see all the changes.

Easier to stay in Xian with a range of accommodation types than in the site. It is only a shortish car ride to the pits and then allows access to all the other material around the old quarter
