It was extremely crowded as well as super hot when I visited in July but the life size warriors kept me spell bound. A must visit place especially for history and culture lovers.

It is incredible to see this what was in the middle of nowhere and what the area has become in just 40 years since they were found. If I had to recommend one place to anyone to visit in China, this would be it!

The Terra-cotta warriors is a great place to learn all about ancient Chinese history. The history buff will have hours of reading and learning to do when visiting this attraction.
