I had seen programmes about the terra cotta army on tv, but to stand and stare and admire these soldiers, each with a different facial expression and hair style is stunning. On some you can see some of the colour pigments used when these soldiers were formed. A highlight of any trip to China

This Mausoleum was great and full of fantastic history and relics. Even though it is 2nd behind The Terracotta Warriors it remains a great place to visit.

great gardens to walk in but nothing really to see. Could have spent time seeing other places, but if you want a relaxing walk then it is nice, also fills in the history of the Warriors.

This is a lovely area near the Terracotta Warriors and is included with admission. It's nice to take a stroll around and snap a few photos but wouldn't be worth a visit on its own. It seems like some active work is being done here so I'm not sure if it might be more interesting in the future.
