This is something special, of course. But meanwhile, the special is maybe rather the organisation of the masses - bring the tourists to the edges of the soldiers's graves, let the tourists take selfies and make the tourists pay much for little things. If you...More

I can see why the terra-cotta warriors are the biggest tourist attraction in Xi’an. They are simply magnificent! And to imagine that they are only a fraction of gargantuan mausoleum unearthed, is so jaw-dropping. What can I say which has not already been said in...More

Visiting Terracotta Army Museum was the highlight of my visit in Xi'an. It was just unbelievable to see all the "life-like" statues under several roofs. I probably took more pictures of this place than anywhere else on my recent trip to China.

Student discount only for chinese. Not for foreigners. Racist and rude about it. They looked pretty miserable behind the counter. Karma?

We were lucky and went with a private tour guide. We spent over 3 hours at the Terra Cotta army site and would have spent much more time here!

Although we have all seen photographs of the terracotta warriors, nothing quite prepares you for the first glimpse of all the warriors, it was breathtaking and I found it very emotional too. The vastness of the pits where the warriors were found is amazing. Very...More
