“When in xi'an you should visit this.”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

It's amazing how many statues there were buried. But when you have seen it, you have seen it. You know this from pictures on the internet and from television. Well... it looks exactly the same.

“Amazing Place”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

I had been the museum of Terracotta Warriors and Horses a week ago. The weather was very nice and there are not a lot of visitors. Before I been there I heard there are always many many foreign visiors but when I went inside the museum it is almost no persons. Maybe because of afternoon. I never think the pit is so big and there are so many woaaiors and horses but it is a pity I cannot see the color of them.

“the 8th wonders in the world”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Xi'an is home of the world renowned Terra Cotta Army, an archeological site of unimaginable size and importance. The Terra Cotta Army was created to guard Emperor Qin Shihuang’s tomb and to protect him in the afterlife. It is estimated that there are over 7,000 life-size terra cotta figures and horses buried here I once led tour group there every client think it is as amazing as Great Wall in Beijing
it is a must you should travel when you spend your vacation in China

“terra cotta army in eyes of a local guide”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

As a local tour guide, i have been to this museum quite a lot of times, because the excavation work is still going on, every time i go is even a "new" trip for me, new findings keep occuring in my eyes, especially the facial appearances of those mighty warriors, some are smileing, some are very solemn, some are even peeping at fellow standing beside him. i always try my best to tell every detailed findings i know to my guests. of course, at the same time some of my guests are very professional and observant, i also learned a lot from them.
hoping every tourist to my hometown have a pleasant and meaningful trip.
