A must see on visit to china and will only get better as they continue digging. We had a guide but you could really just so some reading beforehand & read the signs. Visit pit 1 last as it is most spectacular & the other 2 are a little disappointing afterwards.

Bingmayong is located about an hour's bus ride from Xian main railway station. I took bus 306 and was the only non-Chinese in the whole bus. Luckily, the conductor was able to speak English and assured me that I was on the right bus. The bus ride all the way to the museum is 7 yuan. Upon arriving at the... More

Even though we've been here five years ago, we loved seeing this place because it's so amazing! We decided to do buildings three and two first and worked our way backward so we could be totally amazed by building one, where most of the terra cotta warriors are. We did pay the extra money to take the fake picture of... More

The Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses in Xi'an are world class. During our recent visit to China, seeing the Warriors was the highlight of our trip. When we asked other travelers about their highlight, everyone responded "The Terra-cotta Warriors." The artistry, the individualization (down to the fingernails and shoes), the haunting unique faces, the sheer magnitude, and the restoration efforts are... More

This is history unearthed so quite fascinating to see and learn how these terracotta warriors came to be. Not only the warriors, but the tools they used, Be aware of hawkers selling imitation figurines. If you are keen you can bargain with them. Had character starting at RMB100 drop down to RMB10. There is nice restaurant within the compound to... More

We spent a long weekend in Xian and took a private tour from the terracotta warriors private tour recommended by TripAdvisor. Linda our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable. You must take the private tours. She knows all the good spots and where to go etc. thumbs up for this one!
