“A must visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

You can go on your own if you can find the bus station. It's pretty easy. This archaelogical dig leaves you with no words. If you are planning to go, plan to see the rooms in this order, Pit 2, Pit 3, and then Pit 1. If you do pit 1 first you will find the rest of the exhibit, underwhelming.

“History on an Epic Scale”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Saw the Terracotta Army in June 2012 and was blown away by the sheer scale of it. Nothing quite prepares you for number of warriors or the intricacy of the designs or the vast size of the tomb.

Not wanting to spoil it for those with a hunger to see it...

If you can get to Xi'an, you have to see it!
