This is one of the things on most travelers' bucket list. An amazing presentation of a fantastic site. Make sure to see all of the museum buildings since the main one has the warriors but the others have an abundance of other sites including some with the roof structures still in evidence.

What I use to watch on the History Channel was amazingly right in front of my eyes! The history behind the terra cotta warriors and the intricate design of each warrior is just amazing! It's truly a must go to attraction when in Xian! Our private tour with China Odyssey Tour had brought us here and Stella our guide was... More

This is probably on the bucket list of any true traveller worth his salt. And it surely doesn't disappoint. Much has been said and written so I won't sound repetitive. Few tips: 1) Read well about the place and the story/history, will appreciate things better then. 2) Take along a private guide, makes navigation easier 3) Go by private car... More

The museum is pretty under-developed and you'll have to find through the hoards of crowds to get a look at the statues which are about 100 feet away. Most of the museum is only partially excavated. You have to come here because it's the most famous attraction in Xi'an but don't expect to be wowed just yet -- I bet... More

The warriors are incredible! We enjoyed walking through the museums and it took us back to time! It gets crowded but we expected the crowds and it did not stop us from enjoying. Outside the museum there are lots of restaurants and cafes to eat something, there is even a Starbucks

The group I was with were first shown the factory where they make the small Terracotta Warriors. Very interesting to see how they were made. It just shows how long it would have taken to make a life size Warrior. When you see them being made and then see the Warriors in the ground you realize how impressive this site... More
