The reason we travelled to Xian and we were not disappointed. Be aware that it is a considerable walk from the entrance/exit to the actual site. There is a restaurant on site which served up a tasty lunch. Take sunscreen and a hat if the weather is warm.

Over 2000 years old. They all have different faces, armors. Massive... I read about if to prepare for the visit, but it was just incredible to see this with my own eyes. I highly recommend you take photos in the room with the background picture of warriors. It looks real! Must see. No question.

Of course we went to see the Terracota warriors and really enjoyed the visit. Great museum and display in a huge area. You should plan for at least a 4 hour visit round trip. Its not to far away, I guess it depends on traffic

Put this one on your bucket list! Incredible history and accomplishment of ancient Emperor. Unbelievable detailed work by archeologists. Beautiful, spacious surroundings. Ranks up there with the Great Wall! Go in a small group tour. It is well worth the money.

Having seen the documentary on the TV, we really were looking forward to this visit. It did not disappoint. The layout is terrific and easy to walk around. We were mesmerized by the details of the army spending a couple of hours walking around. We found the bus next to the train station at the northeast corner of the city... More

We were amazed with the number of warriors uncovered but even more amazed to hear about how many pits were still uncovered. there was an opportunity to view excavating at multiple stages. Signage provided great information.

We were blown away at the magnitude of this site. Can't imagine how many people and man/hours have been involved in creating, then restoring this site.

This was amazing and well worth the trip to Xi'an. We had an amazing man driving us for the full day to see as much as possible and with only 600RMB
