This should be on everyone's bucketlist. Statues, as sized as regular man, very very old, and yet still real looking, the amount of statues makes it almost unbelievable.

You just have to see this to believe it ! All the tv documentaries, National Geographic articles, or anecdotes about this place, and it's history, don't come anywhere near doing it justice. And who knows how much more there is still to be discovered, unearthed, and meticulously put back together. The shear size of the site is the first real... More

This was one of the main reasons for coming to China. I remember reading in the 1970s about the discovery of the Terracotta Warriors and was fascinated by the idea that an emperor had ordered the construction of thousands of "warriors" to protect him in the afterlife. The reality was so much more than I'd expected. Pit 1, the main... More

This was an absolute must for me while in China and it lived up to everything I hoped it would be. Absolutely a must see in Xi'an and you won't be disappointed. The museum is amazing and the detail in the statuses is wow. Plenty of crowds but we always managed to get in to see everything.

The terracotta figures are amazing to look at. However almost 50% don't look like the same in terms of hair styles or clothing - it is weird. They have different hairstyles and there is a suspicion by a few historians that it may be of Empress Dowager Xuan who originally hailed from the State of Chu. Furthermore Qin Shi Huang's... More
