This is an old wall that goes around the city. We were told that one could go up but we could not find the place to go up in spite of asking several people.

Having been to many 'forts' around the world, this wall, the fortress to the inner part of the Qin' dynasty's inner-city is yet another on of those. The Moat that runs around it and the colossal-ness of the structure makes it a site to visit. Visit this place if u are in Xian for its historical importance and for a... More

Cycling the city wall was one of the highlights of our trip to xi'an, hiring a bike and riding around the city gives an idea of how large the city is and how well controlled development has been in this city. It's is obvious from any point on the wall unlike any other cities I have visited in china that... More

Guide told us it was the oldest walled city in China. We're fortunate enough to have a beautiful day on our visit. Rented bicycles and rode along the wall. Next trip will ride the whole thing!

The wall was built circular, and there is bike or tandem bike and other vehicle (that need someone to pull it for you... I dunno what the name ^^!) for rent up there so you can bike on the wall and enjoy the city landscape from a jammed traffic to relax natural scenery, or from magnificent well built city, to... More

Walked around half the fortress walls then tried to rush back and found our the fortress had shut down and I was locked in! Probably a good idea to check when it closes. Amazing fortress!

I went with my two teenage boys on a cold and windy Saturday morning and we decided to go all the way round on bikes. The ramps and cobbled stones made for a fun and interesting ride. It took us about 1 and 20 minutes - but I went quite slowly and finished after the others! They were preparing for... More

It was worthwhile getting up to the top of the wall and walking around a bit. We saw several people riding bikes up there having a great time. The views were great.

Visited the wall from South gate and walked until North gate. It was misty and the wind was quite cold. Many spots that were so nice to capture city view from above. Stay at the wall until past 6 PM, the lights will be turned on and the wall looked very nice! Dont forget to bring water and some snacks... More

We visited the wall from the Eastern gate. Amazingly restored and well maintained. We visited during off peak season so hardly anyone there. Can imagine it would be busy during peak season. You can hire bikes and ride the wall but the cobbled service would make for a rough ride and sore bottom after a while. You can walk the... More
