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.
Buck List Experience Getting to see this is amazing, and definitely worth the visit. The explanation around this whole experience is definitely worth it. Its a whole day affair and so pack snacks or just eat from the many stores they have once you exit. Taxi trip is around 150¥ for a single trip. You can also buy your tickets online which saves you from the queue. They have an awesome photography section so make sure u go get your picture done. Its about 100¥ or 150¥ and you can get your face done in a little cube which is also amazing.
A must-see for any history buff! The three excavation pits and relics buildings are worth the crowds and waiting to get a good view. Still under excavation, it provides insight into China's preservation of heritage and culture. We did not have a guide, since signs had explanations in English.
easily reachable with the bus n 306 (7 RMB one way to buy on the bus). audio guides in Engl are bad (I think 40 RMB + 100 deposit). Most of the prebooked tickets are useless because you need to change it there. the place is amazing, and I recommend to start from Pit 3, then Pit 2 and finally Pit 1.
I took my grandfather out to see the Terracotta Warriors yesterday, he never thought he would get to see it in his lifetime. He kept saying how spectacular it was to see the warrior statues in person.
This amazing site is a must when visiting Xian. Pictures dont justify the feeling you get when you seeing this amazing hitsory. i would def. recommend getting a tour guide before entering they will give you a private tour and all the info about this site. The English is great also.
UNESCO world heritage site, discovered by a group of farmer who were building a well, and discovered the site with those burial warriors.The museum is about an hour ride on the bus from Xi’An city, give yourself about 2 hours for the visit, as you do have to walk a little from the coach alighting park.
Being one of the UNESCO 8 wonders of the world puts this place at the top of my bucket list. Once I got there I can feel the deep history and how the Chinese government preserved it so well. It's an amazing site and full of historical artifacts from where they dig up the terracottas.
loved it! although i recommend doing only to the warrior's part. the mauseloum is kinda boring because it hasn't been completely excavated. but if you like gardens then do go to the mauseloum. it gets real hot. take an umbrella
Xi’an City is claimed to be on of the world’s great ancient cities, being famous for its role as a starting point for the Silk Road. This Unesco site is most likely on everyone’s bucket list. Situated only a few km outside of the city center, one can easily plan a day trip by making use of public transport for only 7¥. The park can get a little bit crowded so you might want to go early and capture beautiful photos before the crowds arrive. Tour guides are optional should you want to hear more about the history of this Unesco city.
The Terracotta Warriors and Horses of Qin Shihuang rank first among many scenic spots in Xi'an. They are also the scenic spots for children to go by name. Terracotta Warriors and Horses are known as the eighth wonder of the world and one of the great discoveries in the archaeological history of the twentieth century. UNESCO has listed Qinshihuang Mausoleum (including Terracotta Warriors and Horses pit) on the World Heritage List. In summer, the temperature in Xi'an is too high. With the humidity in the terracotta warriors and horses exhibition hall, there are many visitors, which makes the visitors feel like steamed sauna.
