It was snowing the day we went and it was freezing! It's quite a walk from where we were dropped to the entrance so by the time we got to the pits we were really cold! The pits were ok. They have started trying to restore the warriors so there actually aren't thousands to see in their found state. Pits... More

An impressive must visit while at Xian. There are 3 halls to visit . Hall#1 is the most famous and impressive when you see all the terra cotta warriors lined up. Hall#2 is a small one that isn't so impressive but have some unique worriers and some ruins, the third one has a small museum inside and the emperors carriages.... More

This is a must visit if you go to China. It is breathtaking! Just the history involved with finding the terra-cotta Warriors and the painstaking excavation is incredible. I could literally stand for hours and just look at the faces of the warriors. Truly an amazing visit.

An obvious must if you are in XI'an. There are 3 sites to visit but only 1 that has the famous terra-cotta warriors. Other 2 will hold ruins and relics. So take the time to enjoy when you see them and not rush to the other 2 sites.

I will assume that you already know WHAT the Museum of Qin is all about, and try to stick with some good advice. I almost think that giving a "review" to the Terra-cotta Warriors of Xi'an is a bit pointless, because there is nothing I can say that National Geographic or the BBC could not show you a thousand times...

My parents are from China and so even if I was born in England, I'm not really a 'tourist' whenever I visit Beijing or in this case Xi' An. The Terracotta Warriors are really an incredible site to behold, and there are three large tomb sites you can visit, as well as a museum which is quite in depth. It... More

Definitely a must see place to visit once in your life. It gets very crowded like most popular tourist destinations in China, but is a fantastic sight to see, worth taking a pair of binoculars so you can see the individual expressions on the warriors faces.

Pictures do not do this amazing place justice. the amount of care that goes into each statue is amazing. You can take a bus from Xi'an train station to the front of museum, no need for tour guide.

At last we made it to one of the famous Chinese sights after having lived in this country for four years... As touristy as it gets in China (of course) but well worth the visit. Impressive as expected to be eye to eye with the soldiers... We traveled on a weekday and it was busy but manageable to deal with... More
