An amazing day which blew me away with how intricate and beautiful the terracotta warriors were. I went with my girlfriend ( we are British). We went by ourselves and didn’t use a tour guide. Getting in is very simple but right now you CANNOT book tickets online. When you arrive you will be pulled aside to check your passport details as you won’t have a Chinese ID. No problem for me as I’ve been used to this in China for many years. When you get to the ticket office you can pay with WeChat now or cash. For 2 adults we paid ¥240RMB. We arrived at 11am ( not early birds) and there was a queue but nothing major. Your ticket will be checked to get into the park and then again about a few hundred meters later just before the dig sites. There are 3 pits all together, and I URGE people to see pit 1 LAST as this is the most impressive one to see. It is huge and the warriors are outstanding. There is a big walkway all around the warriors so there are infinite chances to take photographs. Bring a good camera for Pit 2 and 3 as they are a little dark. All in all it took us about 2 hours to walk round all 3 will a little break for some snacks. Be prepared there will be many tour groups there the same time as you, and they may be a bit pushy when it comes to the perfect picture angle. An absolutely outstanding day and we enjoyed every minute of it!!

Amazing experience. We explored the Terracotta Army by ourselves, without a guide. We got there early (8:30am) and there weren’t too many people. If you are not a Chinese National or not part of a tour group, you will need CASH to purchase your ticket (120yuan) as there is no weChat pay or Alipay option that are the most common forms of payment in China.

Eddie was a great tour guide! He took us to incredible sights we had been hoping to see. He was very knowledgable and very informative. My brother and I loved learning about the history and seeing the sights. The Terracotta Warriors were the most AMAZING things we have seen.

You can catch a public bus to the Terracotta warrior at 3-5 yuan from Xi'an. Then the fun begins, you get accosted as you get off the bus by people selling everything, restaurants, food and guides. 120 yuan to go in each. The guide is 200 yuan for a guide who speaks English. The walk up to the pits, the guide just talks filler. And the pits talk for themselves.

We had an amazing tour of the Terracotta Warriors. The vastness of the venue will impress you beyond what you might expect. What a unique experience! I was also able to meet the man that found them, as he holds court in a restaurant now and then right outside the venue(my guide knew of his whereabouts) and signs a book about his discovery. Very cool. Incorporate a lunch plan as there are restaurants and a tourist focused area that is a pleasant stroll. The food was good too! I will say the day we were there the actual venue was very crowded as it was preceding a national holiday, so prepare for crowds or plan other times to visit. The earlier part of the day was the most crowded. It began to lighten up late morning. Definitely watch the movie they run. It’s very well done. Amazing site you don’t want to miss.
