The warriors are housed in purpose built buildings that sit alone in abandoned parkland. On a better day (No smog), they would be a great place to sit under the trees and have a picnic. No one else seemed to be paying any attention to the grass areas, maybe due to their limited time limits. Walking into the main building... More

My daughter compared it to the Acropolis in Athens, but I honestly thought it was way better. The sheer immense size of the whole project was mind boggling. And now with the recently opened and enlarged entrance piazza and better tourist facilities with restaurants and coach parking, the whole experience was really world-class. Suggest you MUST hire one of the... More

The museum is better on print that being there, it's a wonder to see it, sure. And also if u are going on a winter, bring warm clothes, because this museum is actually an open area.

This experience defies easy description. Hundreds of life-size sculptures, with individualized features. People, horses, weapons. Leave enough time to really look around, and soak up the variety and vastness of it all.

Give yourself time to have a good look and if possible, also get a guide. There are so many points to look at, youp'll miss them without an expert. Get there easrly, before the crowds!

It is a place you need to visit once in a lifetime. It's incredible how the warriors are done. Advice, don't take the tour, at Xi'an train station leaves the bus 914 that takes you to the site for 13 yuan.

This is a must see when visiting Xi'an. Although it took us about an hour drive, definitely worth visiting. Consider this as at least half day (if not a whole day) tour. This is a massive display of history of China. Territory is quite big, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes.
