Arrive 30 minutes before the ticket counter opens. Buy tickets then get in line, make a b-line for the electric cart tickets once you enter. That way you get to Pit 1 before the crowds. We hired one if the official guides who gave a tour in English using headsets. The guide has pros and cons. The good is that she knew how to navigate and get us around quickly, staying ahead of the crowds andlearning about the history as we went. The down side is that the guides get commission at several of the souviner shops, so you are going to do some window shopping. That being said, if you buy some of the terra-cotta miniatures, they will take tou up stairs for a tea service. If you havent had a tea service, this is a great way to experience several types of tea. This did delay us from pit 3 where you can actually see a few pieces up close. By the time we fot there it was wall-to-wall people, uncomfotable, and we just hurries through. Adter the tour you come out in a large shopping district with lots more sovieners, including more terra-cotta miniatures. These are supposedly not kiln fired and more probe to breakage, but who knows. Also, we went to a jade shop, but the prices seemed too low, probably color enhanced jade and the pink jade was quartz. Finally, we went to a shop that had the farmer who discovered the first pit (other folks have said that he is he son of the farmer) though the book was nice and he uses an impressive stamp in addition to his autograph. All in all though an impressive experience if you get there early.
The accompanying burial pit found in Weishan is the largest one in Shandong area for the first time, and it is an important archaeological discovery in Han Dynasty. Relevant experts announced that among the terracotta warriors and horses unearthed throughout the country, the size, structure and significance of these terracotta warriors and horses are second only to those of Qin Huang and Yangjiawa in Xianyang, Shaanxi Province, and they are the third largest terracotta warriors and horses in the country. It's worth recommending.
Everyone has heard of the terracotta warriors and horses in Xi'an. Few people have heard of the terracotta warriors and horses in the dangerous mountains. They are lifelike in shape and have few tourists. They can be appreciated slowly. They are also quite large in scale and inexpensive in admission tickets.
The terracotta warriors and horses excavated here are located in the western part of Zhangqiu City. Although they are not very large in scale, they are of great cultural value. They are also excavated with painted pottery products, which are colorful and vivid and exquisite.
Pretty good!!! Long knowledge, very soldier ah. The people here are good.
Terracotta Warriors and Horses, not only Qinshihuang's mausoleum, can also be seen here!
