Incredible! How this this happen? Well, come and find out why. A must when you come to China. Seeing this place and learning about it was so interesting! And Xi'an has so many stunning buildings and monuments, but the Terra-cotta Warriors was one of the best experiences ever.

We visited this as part of a China tour. We were given special treatment as part of a tour and had access before individual visitors. The place is amazing, but really crowded until about 15:30 each day when you can get access to everything without the crowds. We returned to the Pits and took uninterrupted photos of the warriors. All... More

The terracotta warriors are a must see if you go to China. The government has spent a lot of time and effort to make sure that the artifacts are well taken care of. And seeing the warriors who all have different faces by the way is nothing short of astounding. You can see the care that was involved in creating... More

Obviously, the Terra-cotta Warriors is a must do when in China. It's amazing to see the pits and see the culture, history, & skill behind the crafting. I'm not sure why, but I was always under the impression that visiting the warriors would be in a more rural country side area. However, it's a very modern museum style location. Although... More

Just amazing to think the farmer stumbled upon this. They are still finding more types of warriors and in colour. Was about 1 hour from motel. Had to walk for about 15min as the buses couldn't drop you off in front on the place.They have 3 sections to see we were there for 1.30 hours that was plenty of time... More

A bucket list item crossed off and it was most certainly worth it. The "museum" is amazing, thousands of warriors painstakingly pieced back together and replaced in their positions in columns to protect the tomb. When they were discovered the roofs had caved in breaking the warriors up causing carnage. How anyone can work out what goes where is amazing.... More

We've all seen the Terracotta warriors on google and countless documentaries. Nothing can prepare yourself for them in real life. Truly amazing. First, the correct title is Terracotta Warriors and Horses. The craftsmanship of the horses are just as incredible as the warriors They took over 40 years to make and the engineering skill of the chinese is truly amazing.... More

Exactly as I saw it from the magazines and on documentary. Rent a self guided tour and walk slowly to each specific descriptions. 3 building and a short film to watch to complete the full visit. That is why I come to China to see the amazing display of these Terra-Cotta Warriors.

Journey to the beginnings of mighty empire ruled by the first Emperor of China. The amazing thing is each terracotta warrior is uniquely different from others. No one has the similar facial expression. Amazing arts!

We enjoyed this fascinating recent discovery. But our first choice is living cities living cities. We wish we have spent more time of our one day visit in Xian itself. We did purchase some moderate size replicas at a nearby shop. They shipped them to us and they make great decorations at a reasonable price.
