(4.6/5 based on 10,000+ reviews on the web)
The Museum of Qin Terra-cotta Warriors and Horses boasts a collection of over 8,000 carved soldiers and horses. The figures in this World Heritage Site were buried in the 3rd century BCE with the first emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang, to protect him in the afterlife. The thousands of life-size soldiers stand at attention as an imperial army would in real life. Look for remains of the paint that originally lacquered each statue.

  • A "must" If you in XI' on is. The story speaks for itself, you have to let it work only on! Us in advance on this visit well prepared, so that we are well come out without a guide. 306 (Xian railway station) station took the white bus and 7 RMB paid about 1 euro one way per person for 70 minutes. The bus leaves from there every 5 minutes. Worked excellent. The entrance fee to the terracotta - army is currently 150 RMB per person and if you want an English Guide, to be paid locally also 150 RMB. It was a very impressive experience!
