Very impressive and interesting. Very long takes some hours to go around but there are bicycles and small vans on the wall to transfer you around. In summer go afternoon hours. Inside the wall area many interesting shops and nice site seeing. Go deeper and you will end to night market with many foods from west areas of China. Delicious... More

I'd suggest biking along the wall. Nice views of the city and great exercise when the weather is right, which was the case for us.

We only had 30-45 minutes or so to walk the wall since we had a flight to catch, you would need at least 2 hours to enjoy the wall fully. It's more or less a road on the wall, where you can walk or rent a bike (available on the wall for a small fee) and enjoy the view. But,... More

We enjoyed a late afternoon stroll on the wall. It is an amazing construction which surrounds the old city.

We didn't pay to enter but this is a great sight from outside. Can enjoy this splendid work of ancient architecture without entering its gates.

My husband, our friends and I visited the wall for sunset. This means that by 7 pm in summer we were buying our tickets. I really recommend to go at this time since the heat goes down a little. The wall is beautiful and there are many sights I didnt expect. As soon as the sun goes away the lights... More

I personally thing this is the best attraction in Xi'An. Renting a bike and riding along the wall is very nice. The lighting at dark is amazing and should not be missed!

So much to see in historical Xi'an! This was pretty cool and I enjoyed looking around from the top of the wall. I didn't have the time, but I know you can rent a bicycle and ride the perimeter of the wall.

One of the best preserved walls we ever saw - some 40 km around. I would have liked to hire a bike but as I'm 67 (and fit enough to cycle that distance) I didn't meet the under 60 criteria to hire a bike or more importantly a tandem. A pity. We had a personal guide hired by Insider journeys... More
