It's an immense place with tons of Neolithic artifacts. Well-designed, and also includes an actual archaeological dig site out back. A must-visit.

It's amazing they can preserve something 6000 years old at it's original site.A good guide is needed,otherwise you'll only be seeing holes in the ground and some pottery

This site has been preserved and investigated well but you do need a really good guide to get the most from this extraordinary attraction. The fact that as a Neolithic village, it was a matriarchal society was most interesting. The analysis of the different eras and building uses was also fascinating. When looking at the size of this settlement and the size of the moat dug around it and given the tools of the day is truly amazing. The fact they were also using water storage was also interesting. A not to be missed site.

If your not on the clock when visiting Xi'an, add Banpo Museum to your Terra-cotta Warriors trip. It's on the way and takes 1,5 top to visit. It's a nice start, as it shows how old is the civilization of the region (village is dated over 6000 years old) and puts other historic sites in context. I particularly enjoyed learning about clever architectural solutions used in Neolithic housing. It's also interesting to see, how China promotes its culture and educates its people on the country's eras-old significance.
As mentioned in other reviews, it's very amusing to see this archeological site surrounded by modern high-rise apartment buildings. I believe it is an excellent representation of the longevity of Chinese civilization.

part of day tour in Xi'an. ok if you like Neolithic sites. The most striking thing is that it is enclosed by concrete tower blocks, as Xi'an is a rapidly growing industrial city
