In China, I have been to about 15 cities and local tourist attractions. This and the Great Wall are my two favourites. Although I read about and saw photos of the Terracotta Warriors in a couple of travel books and online, I still found it amazingly majestic. This army of terracotta sculptures, which depicts the after-life army of Qin Shi... More

Absolutely wonderful to see the warriors, although the main site is very busy. There is a feeling of already having been there as seen so much on TV!The adjoining displaysare very wellpresented and not quite so busy as the main hall.

This has got to be one of the most awesome in-situ archaeological sites and I've been to many. It's one thing to see a few warriors standing in a museum. To see thousands standing in-situ is an amazing sight.

I've always dreamed about seeing this historical site. It was everything and more! Having an English speaking guide was a must...Peter was very knowledgable. Visiting during the off-season had the benefit of few people and so enabled us to see everything easily. I am eager to observe how the archaeologists progress with the area close to the Emporer's tomb...I will... More

You have to be a warrior for this place! The crowds were pretty epic!! If you don't mind being a bit crowded, than this place is worth the effort!!

Come here! See everything! Buy the mini sets from the guys outside and bargain with them! Plan to spend a couple of hours and visit all the warrior areas and the museum.

This "museum" is much, much more. It was very impressive to see all the warriors and to learn that they had to be pieced together after having been destroyed. You can also view unfinished warriors and horses that haven't been reassembled. It was eye-opening, a true wonder!

I was so looking forward to visiting, and was not disappointed. This is an absolute must see. Restoring these warriors after being destroyed by the Mongolians is such a time consuming and amazing thing. To hear about how they were made and to be so up close enough too see the detail that made each of them individual is unbelievable.... More
