I remember seeing this on television in 1974 when it was discovered, and always wanted to visit. We spent hours here and would recommend an early visit and go out of season. We had visited the factory first so understood the difference between officers and...More

Simply a must see. No picture does it justice. Recommend a guide to explain what and why of the history you see.

This is the most visited site in Xi An. I have to say it is pretty crowded, but still enjoyable. As a not so big fan of archeology I would be better to save time here and enjoy beautiful old city walls in the center...More

Even after seeing countless of pictures before, the enormity of the entire excavation when one sees it, is astounding to experience. The magnitude of the work and the painstaking labor of putting the figures back together is really an awesome experience. It simply did not...More
