Less well-known than the terracotta army this is anotherimperial burial site with a lot of terracotta figures. A little out of the way, I would recommend taking a tour with a guide combined with a visit to the Terracotta Army.
We were expecting crowds like at the Terracota Warriors, but instead we got a quiet lesson in archaeology. The mini warriors are amazing, but the animal statues might be even more incredible. You actually walk on glass over top of the archaeological site, which gives...More

We got an English-speaking guide which was a good thing to do. I'd recommend this place to...More
