A very historical experience, and one which underpins so much of the grandeur of Chinese culture. It's fascinating to see the scale of the works undertaken at the command of the Qin Emperor. This may not be a visit for the thrill seekers but it shouldn't be missed. A pleasant walk through the gardens leads to pits one, two and... More

Put this place on your bucket list. Amazing. Enlist a guide to get the most from your visit and try to visit at a quieter time of year. Mid Feb was not too busy.

So much to see and they are excavating new areas all the time. The area you will visit is large and there is lots of written history in English, but the whole area is vast, and you will learn about all the other things they expect to find. Make sure you have a camera with you and visit our he... More

This is an obvious must go attraction when you visit Xi'an. I went in Winter so it is not crowded. The guide says usually it is so packed you can hardly take any pictures so I think I'm really lucky! It is highly recommended to stay on Site #1 because that's where most of the "fixed" Terracotta Army is located.... More

If there is two things not to be missed in Xian, it has got to the Muslim quarters and this! Come before lunch as it will be less crowded. Take the bus 306 from the train station (西安站) for ¥7.

It was snowing the day we went and it was freezing! It's quite a walk from where we were dropped to the entrance so by the time we got to the pits we were really cold! The pits were ok. They have started trying to restore the warriors so there actually aren't thousands to see in their found state. Pits... More

An impressive must visit while at Xian. There are 3 halls to visit . Hall#1 is the most famous and impressive when you see all the terra cotta warriors lined up. Hall#2 is a small one that isn't so impressive but have some unique worriers and some ruins, the third one has a small museum inside and the emperors carriages.... More

This is a must visit if you go to China. It is breathtaking! Just the history involved with finding the terra-cotta Warriors and the painstaking excavation is incredible. I could literally stand for hours and just look at the faces of the warriors. Truly an amazing visit.
