A must see site for anyone who makes an effort to go to China. Sure the Great Wall is a must but put this second on your list. It is a great place and amazing to experience.

Easier to stay in Xian with a range of accommodation types than in the site. It is only a shortish car ride to the pits and then allows access to all the other material around the old quarter
