As a history lover, this place is definitely in my wishlist. I had teary eyes when I saw those soldiers and horses. I value the story behind all the precious relics. Before visiting, do read about the story of Emperor Qin Shi Huang, his reigns,...More

The Terracotta Warriors are a must see when in Xi'an, or China for that matter. We took the number 5 (306) tourist bus from Xi'an Station. Make sure you get on the WHITE bus which the locals get on - this is the real bus....More

In the winter, low season, it’s -5 degC, but quiet. Summer it’s +40 and very very busy! It is quite wonderful, the scale: trenches 100M long with warriors 4 or 4 abreast the full length! Magnificent

We booked a tour at the hotel and the quality of the tour was appallingly bad. The terracotta warriors once inside, was good. With a bit of pushing, was able to see everything.

It may be easier to travel by plane as I think the Bullet Trains are daily and they will take 6 hours. In terms of our trip the detour to the Terracottas took 2 days. We stayed overnight in Xi-an after travelling by the... More
