What people are saying:

Absolutely incredible! The photos you see online don’t do justice to this incredible slice of ancient China. The place is huge, and being so close to the Warriors is a wonderful experience. Given that it is currently a pandemic, I was expecting it to be difficult as a foreigner to get a ticket to visit - this could not be further from the truth. We took a Didi from Xi’an City Wall (about ¥120 one way... pricey yes. I hear there’s also a tourist bus you can take), and after some security checks - Green Xi’an Health Code; passport - we were able to buy a ticket with cash or WeChat easily. We took about 2 hours to visit the three pits and the exhibition hall - you can then take a connecting bus to visit Qin Shi Huang’s mausoleum. I recommend visiting Pits 2 & 3 and THEN Pit 1 for maximum effect!Well worth the trip and an absolute must-see if you’re visiting Xi’an!

Additional Information


The Museum of Qin Terracotta Warriors and Horses, also known as the Terracotta Army, is located about 1.5 kilometers east of the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor and forms part of the extensive necropolis. There were more than a thousand terracotta soldiers unearthed here, each with a different facial expression. Standing before the massive underground army, you will feel the extraordinary might of the Qin Emperor that enabled him to unify six warring states two thousand years ago. The Qin Emperor Ying Zheng began building the mausoleum for himself at the age of 13. Nearly 720000 men and 38 years were required to complete this vast project.

Helpful Information

1.At the gate of this scenic spot, there are many scammers whom will induce tourists towards the ‘fake’ terra-cotta warriors’ pits and therefore do take note that you are not being deceived. 2. There are many ‘fake’ guides in the east square of Xian Train Station and therefore it is advisable to approach the designated guides (with armbands) for touring or other arrangements.
