This was one of our favorite sites in China. The whole dig and all the work that is actively going on there is a tribute the preservation of history by the people of China

Sites like this are completely full, mostly with Chinese people but, unlike the forbidden city, people did not push too much. Th exhibits are incredible and it was wonderful see how they are excavating and still discovering trenches. A fabulous experience

Of course the terra-cotta army is a must, when you are in Xian. Very impressive line-up of all those old fighters, and you can see the archeologists at work. When you go, go early to avoid crowds, and go for the big hangar (no. 1,...More

It felt a little bit like Disneyland, but it was really cool to see. We unfortunately had a terrible guide, who knew nothing about any of it, which was extremely frustrating. If I had a better guide, perhaps my rating would have been better. The...More

It is my experience that Chinese are not used to replying to email inquiries or complaints, or even complimentary words...The best way is to call and talk to someone over the phone if you have suggestions/complaints.
