Main reason for our trip to China was to see the terracotta warriors. We were not disappointed. What a sight to behold. It takes about 1.5 hours to look around the pits. Fantastic.

The day that we visited was on a public holiday so it was extremely busy. However it was worth the wait to get a good view. Very impressive
