We visited the Warriors as part of a group trip to China with Gate 1 Travel. This is a must see if you are in China our guide explained so much about the site and surrounding area including the Emperors tomb you drive past on the way which most people wouldn't realise.

These are doll sized and include a whole assortment of characters not just warriors like the Xi'an museum. The museum is located inside the Western Han park. You can walk into the park no problem, but if you want to visit the museum you need to buy a ticket. The only place that sells tickets (as far as I could... More

You will need a English speaking docent to help explain some of the displays as there isn't much English on display. Neat place - definitely a worthwhile stop in Xuzhou. Then visit the Xuzhou museum to tie it all together.

Nice site to visit if you have a stop off in Xuzhou. Allow a few hours to walk around this really wonderful park. It has different museum sites within it and quite a few temples on the hill. The terracotta warriors are worth seeing, those in the uncovered pits are quite small but still impressive. There are lots of steps... More

The site of the terracotta warriors is very impressive, the scale of the pits and the amount of warriors is truly amazing. To think that these were only found just over 40years ago. We did a bus tour with guide to the site of the warriors and it was very informative. We enjoyed viewing the 3 pits and the mausoleum... More

The story and the craftsmanship of the terracotta warriors is not well promoted compared to the Great Wall. Although it is still an architectural site with live digging; it's still an unbelievable site and should not missed off any China itinerary.

The Terracotta Warriors have to be seen in the 'flesh' to be believed. Thousands of men and horses hand made to protect the Emperor in the afterlife. Absolutely breathtaking.

If you have to come to Xuzhou and still have some free time don't hesitate to visit the Western Han Dynasty Terracotta Warriors museum. In 2 hours time you will have a good idea of the museum and the nice parc. Be just aware that the statue founded there are about 10 to 40 cm high.

Beautiful park with the forgotten terracotta army and tomb complex. The Prince of Chu tomb by itself is worth the visit. Mass tourism so common was absent in early May. We had the exhibits and park to ourselves until closing of the former when, the park is opened for local residents to enjoy Very friendly and outgoing staff.

I have seen photos and Tv shows on this place but when you go there nothing prepares you for the enormity of it ! As a lover of Egypt I could not get over how it reminded me of Egypt and the similar ways of having tombs etc. Well worth a visit for sure !
