"see the Imax movie at the..." Terracotta Army Tip by coloughlin

Terracotta Army, Xi'an: 12 reviews and 13 photos


Favorite thing: see the Imax movie at the Terra Cotta Army site. We went there last. I recommend that you go there first; then tour the pits and excavations. Do not miss the bronze chariots and riders.
Did you know that the terra cotta soldiers are dug up in broken pieces and shards, then reconstructed in a workshop and returned to the pits after being pieced together?? A real Chinese puzzle.

Fondest memory: I loved it all. Wished I had more time there.
The pregnant buddist nun, the sleeping buddist monk, the hotel garden, they have only just begun to excavate the terra cotta army..........it will be different everytime that you return.
