One of the things we seem to miss out on is a bit of exercise when we are travelling. Xi'an has an inbuilt circuit...the city wall. Do it the quick way on a bicycle or if you have some spare time walk around the wall but remember it is 14K!

This is another restored site, but given the battles it has seen, there wouldn't be much left to see absent the restoration. Its a bit of an odd juxtaposition to see an ancient wall with the background of skyscrapers, but it was interesting. You can hire a bicycle to ride around, which is fun.

Our hotel, the Hilton, was a short walk to the City Wall. Magical at night when the Towers & ramparts are lite up.

We were lucky to stay in Xian during the lantern festival on the city wall. Very nice structures made of paper, lights and grouped by themes. There were a lot of people, mostly locals, very nice vibe.

We biked at a solid clip other than our photo stops and it took us an hour and a half. We were there when the New Years decoration were still up along the south side of the wall-- if we had known we would have taken more time (the bikes had to be returned by 6:00) among the decor. The... More

One enters the wall ( in days gone by, the city) through a very imposing gate. Once on top of the wall its sheer size is staggering. It is perhaps wider that the great wall of China, about 14 meters wide at the bottom and around 11 to 12 meters wide at the top – in effect a two lane... More

Outside bicycle are not allowed on the Xi'An City Wall. You have to rent it from the authorised rental company. It will takes you around 2 hours to finish the four doors.

The walk on the city wall was lovely. I especially loved the attractive park between the wall and the moat. Observing the old city inside the wall was not as charming as I had hoped but the walk was still worth it. One could rent a bike or take a golf cart ride about the wall. When we were there... More

The wall is cool but if you come from a European country you won't be really impressed . The activities are more interesting
