Who does not want to see the famous terra-cotta warriors? It is truly a view to behold. With all its hype it might seem somewhat underwhelming at times, but if you look beyond that it is truly an incredible place.

The impressive, lifesized soldiers and horses are just outstanding. I've never expected it would be such a large scale. After seeing the bronze horses and chariots, I was totally amazed by the ancient Chinese technique and spirit!
