"Terracotta Army Warrior Factory" Terracotta Army Tip by Willettsworld

Terracotta Army, Xi'an: 162 reviews and 358 photos

Part of my Eastern Tour to the Terracotta Army Warriors included this visit to a Terracotta Army Warrior Factory where they have a license to make souvenir Terracotta Army Warrior figures. They are made from clay by hand and dried for 10 days before being fired in a kiln and we got to visit the kiln plus watched people making them. You can then buy them from the factory shop along with other items such as lacquer furniture (which we also saw being made), paintings, ceramics and carpets (see my shopping tips). Be warned that prices here are a lot higher than the markets and souvenir shops in Xian. I actually bought a set of 5 Terracotta Army Warriors from a stall at the Huaqing Hot Springs.

Directions: The factory is close to the Banpo Neolithic Village.
