Smaller in statue and lesser known in fame 身材矮小, 名气不大, Xuzhou’s terracotta warriors from Western Han dynasty, 206BC-220AD. (zh wiki) attract little attention, after Xi’an Qin’s (211-206 BC). The site was excavated in 1984.

The warriors live in Han dynasty cultural zone, which is in the east of the city, 9 km to East train station, at the corner of Heping Lu 和平路 and Sanhuan Dong Lu 三环东路. The admission  ¥90  covers a sizable ground. Parking is ¥10. The main attractions are:

  1. Shizishan Chu King’s Mausoleum 狮子山 西汉楚王陵
  2. Chu Queen’s Mausoleum 王后陵
  3. Han Dynasty Terracotta Warrior Museum 汉兵马俑博物馆
  4. Aquatic Terracotta Warrior Museum 水下兵马俑馆

The park is clean and enjoyable. We went early in the morning on Thursday. The parking lot is empty. The bathrooms are clean but, no surprise, without tissues. I asked the man in blue uniform, he replied “We don’t have …” The city has the budget for cleaners who keep the leaves off the ground meticulously but no budget for bathroom tissue.
