The city wall is so well preserved and can therefore be enjoyed and admired for the workmanship and planning involved in it's building.

Xian City Wall is great trail to walk around the city. Beforeyou climb the wall visit surrounding area full of greenery and water. From walls you can see almost whole ancient city, including Towers of Drums and Bells, colourful Muslim Quarter and City Gates. It cost around 50CNY. I highly reccommend renting a bike. You pay for two hours which... More

Go ride about 5:30-6 at south gate it open until late. You can ride to see the sunset and its not too hot during the summer. Be careful when you ride. I saw a lot of girls fell down and got wounded. The bike is 40 RMB for two hours.

To be honest i didnt think going here was going to be all that interesting, but i was mistaken.We hired bikes and although i hadnt ridden one for a long time i thoroughly enjoyed it, the bikes were easy to ride and the wall is wide enough for cyclists and pedestrians. At one point i got a bit behind the... More

Also called as the fortified wall of the city. Has many towers and gatehouses. Unique Chinese architecture. We did not do the day tour but went around in the night which has the entire wall lit up and makes a beautiful sight. Its a nice walk around the area.

This attraction is one I would recommend to anyone who likes to walk and wants great views of the Xian landscape. The Wall itself is 40 feet tall and about 50 feet wide and separates the new concrete jungle Xi'an from the more quaint older sections. It was a fascinating contrast. By accident, we came across a very cool exhibit... More

I took Line 2 of the Subway to YongingMen ( South Gate) and enjoyed the cleanest toilets in all of China at the subway station. Anyway, back to the walls. They are tall, deep, adorned with watch towers and gatehouses and simply unique in China. Not many cities in China can boast a remaining wall like this one. There is... More

U can rent bicycles when u walk to the top of the wall. It was a nice relaxing thing to do and u can see different parts of the city. Unfortunately my bike broke down half way thru and I had to get my friends to pull me along with their bikes. Still a cool thing to do as a... More

Many of China's cities have lost their walls: e.g. Beijing only has a few vestiges left in some of the towers. But this is complete and it dominates the inner city in so many ways. You are always dealing with it as you get around the city. It is a warm and sunny place - so be ready for that.... More
