This is wild. So many. You can not get as close as this picture suggests, but you can see that they all are different from each other. And there are hundreds of them. When you walk into building 1, you approach kinda from the end zone and are looking down the field. That end, against the railing, is the best... More

A unique experience altogether! definitely a must visit place for tourists visiting X'ian. I was amazed at the efforts being taken by the Chinese government to reclaim the broken statues and the way they are being maintained.

The main attraction is worth seeing. Anyone interested in seeing the museum will already have some idea of what it is about so I won't waste time describing the attraction but will say that my rating is more about the Terracota Army itself. The facilities are reasonable but are not engineered to maximize the comfort of the tourist as one... More

I had read that if you haven't visited Xian you haven't visited China. PRICE for entering museum was about 75 with Chinese student card. I went there by bus. On the way back I was glad I was sitting because people payed 16 yuan (same as me)I think and were standing with no space LITERALLY Make sure to visit all... More

This is an amazing exhibit of historical significance. The warriors were part of an Emperor's tomb from thousands of years ago. They estimate over 6,000 of them, but that is only a guess since they haven't unearthed them all. It is absolutely essential to visit if you are in Xi'an. Hints: We went in the Summer and it was brutally... More

Truly amazing! I've been twice and still haven't seen everything. Make sure and read up on the history or hire an English speaking guide to help with stories and interpretations. A day well spent.

This place is really amazing, when you see thousands of terracotta warriors and learn more about it, the purpose and that they were all broken and repaired piece by piece. Unbelievable!! It is the best to visit in the morning, as there are crowds of people later on. The most crowded is exhibition of chariots and horses, it is quite... More

The terra cotta army statues are the masterpiece of Xi'an, you can get here by taking any of the travel buses in the Xi'an bus station. Every bus lead to this place. Please bring umbrella as this place has little to no shades, buy a guided tour as they are very professional and knew a great deal about this place.... More
