This was incredible, not to mention huge. The crowds can be intense, so be aware of what's going on culturally in the country before you decide to go. It's also worth going with a tour guide. They'll be able to get you around in the most efficient way, and it'll even let you skip some of the lines!

Though these terracotta warriors are smaller in scale than the lifesize Xian ones, they are just as impressive and beguiling to see.

I loved seeing the terracotta warriors. It's amazing to think they survived for over 2000 years in the mud and that they were only discovered in the 1980s. The Chinese government has done a great job of preserving and presenting them in the exact location in which they were found. One row of warriors has been completely excavated, another is... More

Spent around half a day strolling through the beautiful gardens with the highlight being the Terracotta Warriors displays. If you are going to Xuzhou have a look, it is certainly worth while.

We visited the Warriors as part of a group trip to China with Gate 1 Travel. This is a must see if you are in China our guide explained so much about the site and surrounding area including the Emperors tomb you drive past on the way which most people wouldn't realise.

These are doll sized and include a whole assortment of characters not just warriors like the Xi'an museum. The museum is located inside the Western Han park. You can walk into the park no problem, but if you want to visit the museum you need to buy a ticket. The only place that sells tickets (as far as I could... More

You will need a English speaking docent to help explain some of the displays as there isn't much English on display. Neat place - definitely a worthwhile stop in Xuzhou. Then visit the Xuzhou museum to tie it all together.

Nice site to visit if you have a stop off in Xuzhou. Allow a few hours to walk around this really wonderful park. It has different museum sites within it and quite a few temples on the hill. The terracotta warriors are worth seeing, those in the uncovered pits are quite small but still impressive. There are lots of steps... More

The site of the terracotta warriors is very impressive, the scale of the pits and the amount of warriors is truly amazing. To think that these were only found just over 40years ago. We did a bus tour with guide to the site of the warriors and it was very informative. We enjoyed viewing the 3 pits and the mausoleum... More

The story and the craftsmanship of the terracotta warriors is not well promoted compared to the Great Wall. Although it is still an architectural site with live digging; it's still an unbelievable site and should not missed off any China itinerary.
