This attraction is spectacular. I'm wearing a Xian Warriors T shirt right now as I write this review.
The Chinese people were very smart when they first found this colossal collection of Chinese warriors and horses buried under the earth. To protect all of the pieces they constructed a huge domed enclosure over top of the find. It is several football fields in length which gives you an idea of just how huge the site really is.
It 's educational for children and adults. You'll never see anything else in the World quite like it. The Emperor had his people design thousands of these terracotta soldiers and bury them underground to protect him in the afterlife. One interesting fact is that none of the soldiers has the same looking face. Every head was made separate and placed atop of the terracotta soldiers. All of the faces have different expressions and facial appearances.
This museum site is very well planned out. In some areas they have left the broken pieces of the warriors just as they had been found. They are in many pieces.
In other areas you can see hundreds of warriors standing in rows and they are all full lifelike size figures.
The warriors used to be more colourful but after they are dug up the oxygen and air changes their colours to a more pale clay like quality.
You also get to see the differences in the rank of the soldiers. There are generals who have a certain look and dress while other ranks look different. The horses are very well done and lifelike. They even have some chariots that the hoses could pull.
There is a wonderful tea house on the premises. They sell beverages, some food items, and some interesting gift items. They have washroom facilities, an outdoor viewing pool and beautiful flowers to look at in Season.
This is a great exhibit to see on a rainy day as it is all enclosed. Even better on a sunny day as the grounds look pretty.
This is a spectacular display that you will not soon forget!
