One more thing ticked off my bucket list. You would not travel to China and miss out on seeing the Terracotta Warriors in Xi'an. This place is amazing and well worth seeing. It is quite a distance from the city. You will need at least 2-3 hours to go through the three pits. The 1st pit is the best and... More

This is one of the most fascinating historical sites I have ever visited. I had been looking forward to visiting this site for many years so when the opportunity arose I jumped at it. The scale of the site is monumental; that in and of itself is worth the trip. In addition to that, being able to observe up close... More

Terra Cotta Warriors Having first visited the site in 2003 it has changed beyond recognition. It is now a commercial operation on a grand scale. However, that does not take away the magnificence of the site and the warriors. From the car/coach park there is a walk of 4 km but it is possible to take a bus to the... More

This is one of the wonders of the world. Get there early since it gets very crowded. It is better to go on a weekday. Not to miss!

This is a very large site and about 1 hour from the city. We hired a car and english speaking guide - which is recommended. Need at least 3 hours at the museum. Very busy and avoid weekends and public holidays.

A must-see attraction of China, the museum is worth the visit! The sculptures are well preserved and maintained and if you visit during week days you might even see archaeologists work on them. Impressive that every single one of all 6000 sculptures has a different face, like a real life army. We took a tourist bus (no. 306) from Xi'An... More

I did enjoy going to see this. It is a fascinating part of Chinese history. It is amazing to think that the Chinese would make the terra-cotta soldiers to protect the dead. It is definitely a mind blowing museum. Worth the visit. I think our tour group spent about 2 hours there. I think I could've cut the time down... More

Better than I expected. The terra cotta warriors are amazing. I wish all of the work had been completed and we had gotten to see more finished warriors, but it still is a great experience. By far the highlight of our visit to Xi'an.
