You shouldn't miss it, just the Terracotta Warriors is enough to get you to visit Xi'an. Is easy to get there from bus from Xi'an central train station, the bus is well marked and in english. You should start the visit by the small pit and leave the biggest to last, if not when you arrive to the smallest the... More

The Terracotta Soldiers exemplify dynastic art and rule in China. Teaching you about the Qin dynasty and how Qin Shi Huang ruled China. I took a private tour who explained everything in perfect English and was very helpful. We got inside viewpoints and stories about the soldiers! There are three pits and the largest pit is the most beautiful one.... More

I recommend you to go early in the afternoon, after all the bigs tours have left. We went on a Saturday around 3 pm and we could take a look at all the pits without rushing and with not that many people, something you truly appreciate.

One of the few places in China where you can enjoy antic findings. Lack of aircondition in the pavilons and many visitors are not helping to fully unjoy your visit but overall its is impressive place.

We usually see only pictures from the first pit. It is huge and some camera pictures may not be best because of lighting. My IPhone worked fine. Seeing the area where some soldiers are being repaired was an added surprise. The second and third pits were great surprises to me. Not much has been excavated in the third pit. I... More

There are two major things to see in Xian, this is number one. There are three pits. Each pit is housed in large AC'd buildings. You can walk all the way around each pit taking all the pics you want. Display cases are bilingual, Chinese and English. There is a side room in what I think was pit 3 where... More

The Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, Forbidden City....these are the reasons why we go to China. Included in this iconic group of sites is the Terra-cotta Warriors. This is a truly amazing archaeological find this was the highlight of our unbelievable trip to China. The way they are presented in the three buildings is well thought out. What is hard to... More

When you arrive you'll be swarmed with sellers but once through the ticket check you'll find a very beautifully designed walkway that will lead up to the pits. The whole area is now very modernised and prestine. I'd recommend a guide to explain everything to you in great detail. The pits themselves are fascinating and are still an active archeological...

We visited the Terracotta Army as part of a tour group. The guide was well worth having in order to understand more of the history and to answer questions. There are 3 main pits which all get quite crowded with tourists. You can't really imagine what it is like until you visit.
