When in China, Terracotta Worriers museum is a must to see, and really to spend time viewing each pitt, each worrier, each horse commissioned by Emperor Qin (2,000 years ago). Sadly, my group walked through a bit too fast...had they known that it took nearly 40 years and several thousands of lives lost from building this tomb of several hundred thousands of life-sized claysolders and horses, they might have dedicated a bit more time to appreciate both the terror (from the tyrant emperor) and the incredible human creativity and ability for such a monumental legacy left behind for us to witness. As of now, more than 7,000 pieces have been unearthed. Do not forget to stop by at the cinema, to watch a free 15-minute documentary in English. The ground, lawns and trees are well kept; take time to stroll around to appreciate how vast this tomb area is, with a mountain in the backgroun. And, there's no need to take the electric cart from the gate unless you can't really walk. Many shops on the way out to the parking lot once you leave the museum area. This is my second time visiting Terracotta museum and I still enjoyed and appreciated what I saw very much.
