There would be a-plenty said on this topic, but being there, the scope, artistry, and immense capital of the ancient project still completely blows your mind.

It is a unique archeological site, pit 1 is most impressive in terms of sheer number of life sized soldiers displayed. However site could be much improved adding fully coloured soldiers, the way they were discovered before the paint peeled off due to the atmosphere. Also to be honest I don't think a guide is needed (unless you are really interested in historic detail) as even not speaking Chinese we could easily find our way around the site and see everything we wanted to see. Within 2 kilometers from this archeological dig is the Qin Mausoleum, it is included in the same ticket price and is part of the same site however there is nothing to see there, a lot of walking to get to the mountain (underneath presumably is the Qin Emperor tomb, but you can't see anything, not even a model of what the tomb looks like, just a mountain.

This was easily a highlight of all the places I have been fortunate to experience in my life. Yes it was crowded, but you have to expect that when visiting such a historical site in a country where over 1 billion people live, so accept it! From the moment we walked in to the covered site of “pit 1” I was left speechless. These thousands of terracotta warriors are eerily silent and yet leave a powerful impression. Once you start to walk around you can appreciate the effort it must have taken to create these figures such a long time ago. The entire site is extremely well set out. Don’t be put off by the crowds, they have come to see exactly the same thing that you have. I am not usually a fan of Chinese tourists, but I appreciated them in a different light, as this time it was me coming to their country to share this amazing experience. Well worth the visit!

We visited as part of a Wendy Wu tour, so were lucky enough to have skip the line tickets. The warriors are amazing. The one thing we did not know was that all but one were smashed, so this has been the worlds largest jigsaw puzzle, to put them back together. An incredible task. There are 3 pits to view, and the museum, so it is advisable to allow at least 3 to 4 hours to fully appreciate the mammoth task of restoration. Make sure you have your camera ready.
