It's amazing how many warriors there are. Each warrior seems to have a different facial expression. There are also chariots, horses and weapons. Most of the warriors are in the pits, but a few are in glass enclosures. There's a gift shop. The restroom has squat toilets.

This was an extremely interesting part of our tour of China. The scale and input needed for this project has been and continues to be monumental. We were part of a group so only stayed for a few hours but could easily have stayed for much longer. We purchased an interesting book and a free DVD was enclosed so that... More

About an hours drive out of Xian one of China's most visited attraction is a must see for anyone. The terracotta site is huge and well put together for tourists, as explained many times over there a 3 main pits with pit one being by far the largest, and then a separate museum for the Horses. You could easily spend... More

A bit of a drive, queues and very hot but such an incredible place. Our guide was very informative and knowing the history of the Warriors made the visual impact even more stunning. A must visit destination.

The Terracotta Warriors is undoubtedly a must see though I did not think the site was as impressive as it could be and the crowds really were something! Access to the Terracotta Warriors was good though and there were sufficient opportunities to see them in relatively close proximity. A Xi'an must see but do be prepared for how any people... More

Visited here for a day on a tour. This is a must see in China. The story of how this was found and how has been excavated is truly interesting. The size of it, can only be realized by visiting it in person. I had seen pictures of it, but pictures do not do it justice. There were many people... More

So on a Monday we went on a tour to see the Terracotta Warriors. Apparently fewer than on the weekends, but it felt like all of China was with us on a very warm day. However the warriors or the stone soldiers as the Chinese call them are awe inspiring. So many, so proud and a bit poignant.

This exhibit was one of the main reasons for our trip to China and it did not disappoint. Be prepared for large crowds - we understand there are no slow days here. On site bathrooms are plentiful and clean - mostly squat toilets. Good food facilities on site and nice gift shop

The three areas to visit are very well done and informative. I would recommend visiting in the afternoon as most of the tour groups are there in the morning!

we had seen pictures, but it was nothing compared to seeing them for real, the viewing of them is brilliant, the museum is very very good
