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

We were vacationing in Hong Kong & Beijing in the 1st week of January. We were having a blast and had not yet made it to the Terra-cotta Warriors. So my son & I did a day trip from Beijing. Caught a 7 am flight from Beijing, scored a private van at the Xi'an Airport Transportation Desk and headed to... More

A must visit place in Xi'an. Worth every minute you stay there. Better to visit oneself than to join in a guided tour. Take to your own time to move around. Weekends are crowded. Best to visit on weekdays.
