I have been there during October festival. Try to avoid it during chinese public holidays, as this place will be crowded. It took us 4 hours by car from downtown. And the distance is just 30 km. But anyway i've enjoyed it. We took an audio guide, and i recommend you to do the same.

Xi'an visit can not be fulfilled without visiting terra-cotta warriors. Nice place to see the man made soldiers and know the history behind it.

So much has been written about this. Interest in Chinese ancient history goes back to primary school days, so this is in my must see list. We took a bus from Xi'an bus stop, there are many buses from multiple services coming to this place for 6 Yuan. so you can leave anytime throughout the day, Was told services ends... More

Without any doubt, one of the great wonders of China and the World. A fantastic and recent discovery, very worth to visit. Find a tour to visit as it is far from the Xi'an city itself.

An amazing site. I am still can't believe such a massive site to tell a story from 100s of years back. Absolutely amazing.

Need to visit if in the area but less impressive than I had expected due to most of it still being underground and of course many items are damaged. An incredible thing for someone to have done! It was very hot and quite long walk from the entrance.

You can see the photos but when you actually see them in person, it is just amazing. Massive and they are still uncovering and restoring more. A tick off the bucket list!

We visited the Terra-cotta Warriors in August 2016. The Chinese children were off from school so it was packed. We had to jostle for a spot directly in front of the main pit to have a look and take photos. Despite the crowds, the warriors are an amazing sight to see. It was a little less crowded as we walked... More

I was privileged to be able to bring my children here. I first visited more than 20 years ago, having been enthralled by the story of the discovery and the utterly crazy Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi since I was a child. Much has changed and 3 pits are now available to see, the area has been significantly developed and photographs... More
