Loved to see all the artifacts about daily life in Han dynasty. Nice comparison to Terracotta Warriors -- emphasis is on agricultural lifestyle which followed warlike Qin dynasty

If you've got lots and lots of extra time, you may as well but really much more productive to go have coffee somewhere. Not worth the trip

This is a less well known tomb as compared to the Terracotta warrior. Before entry, we are supposed to put on disposable shoe covers. We walked through the glass floor to see what is buried underneath. This is a underground tomb with miniatures warriors and animals. Interesting to learn how different rulers have their views on the things they bury.

It is interesting but worth visiting only if you have extra time in Xi'an. Terra Cota soldiers and Muslim Market are musts.

The tomb itself was a bit of a letdown, however the work where they are excavating was interesting to see. The area itself is massive and if you wanted you could spend hours walking around enjoying the greenery. However if it's just a sight-seeing stop then you wouldn't need more than an hour to get in see it and then... More

For a museum to be virtually empty during the Chinese school holidays is quite unbelievably refreshing. All other sites of antiquity or beauty are simply overflowing with tidal waves of humans. This is a very interesting underground imperial archeological site, and as such is dark - and therefore the English text descriptions are a little difficult to see. The scene... More

Overcrowded but this is normal in China - easy to explain. This place is a must see but it is extremely repetitive. I am not saying that I didn't admire the history or the architecture but coming from a tourist point of view this place is endless, over crowded but still just beautiful!

When we learned there were no women in Emperor Qin's terracottas but there were in this tomb, we made a detour en route to the airport. The figures are much smaller and were dressed in silk so appear somewhat simplistic compared to the meticulously detailed army. Fascinating to think of the different approaches to the afterlife party. For our top... More
