One of themes incredible things I have ever seen in all my journeys across the world. Hard to imagine this was ever created and so much more work is ahead of the people to unearth even more warriors. Cant wait to go back in 20 years!!!

This was my second visit to the Terracotta Warrior site and it continued to amaze me. The amount of thought, planning, workmanship and extreme physical effort that went into this historic site is truly inspiring. You really should make an effort to include Xi'an in your China itinerary.

Well organized museum. Get a guide. We've all seen pictures of the warriors, but seeing them in real life is extraordinary! Just an amazing sight. Just as amazing is how this magnificent site was accidentally discovered and so relatively recently. Still in awe

If you only ever go to one place in China, then this must be it. From the stunning sight that greets you when you enter Pit 1 onwards it is hard to find the right words to describe the experience. A once in a life time place.

This place is amazing - buy a little booklet at the official tourist shop inside it is very cheap and gives a good explanation of the history. Be wary of vendors selling you the little boxes of terracotta warriors - I'm not saying don't buy them just haggle! We started off at 300 yuan and bought them for 30?! Some... More

You hear and read about the Terracotta Warriors but seeing it in person is amazing. The museum is beautifully planned out and modern and made for a wonderful experience.

Any photos do not do this World Wonder any justice. It is a must go! site. Arrived by train in the morning and left late at night also by train.
