Very good preserved.

The prices have changed from the internet, but the wall is walking distance from the city centre and you can hire a bicycle and ride along the top of it. Great views of the city.

Firstly I'd like to say I hate cycling and got roped into cycling around the wall. But after going around and see the view in and around the wall were awesome. It's well worth the effort. You be best going around the time the sun will set that way will get to see the city in the day and also... More

There is a fee to enter the top of city walls, which can easily be avoided because the person checking tickets is not always there. There are many places on top where you can rent a bike to bike around the walls. You can return the bike at a different stall than the one you rented from, so you won't... More

Like many Chinese historical spots, this is huge & still strong. I was doubt for my historical knowledge, how could a Country had been destroyed with this kinds of strong & huge wall... Worthy to see.

Renting one of the bikes or tandems and going around the ancient wall was just relaxing. you forget the busseling city and can enjoy a nice view on the city during sunset in the evening.

We rented bikes and completed the entire wall loop. Riding at a medium pace and taking photo stops we still completed it in about an hour or so. The scenery isn't necessarily spectacular but biking on an ancient wall isn't something you can do everywhere!

Did not spend enough time there. If you get the chance do the whole of the wall by bike. It's amazing and a one he'll of a feat of engineering.

A great way to get a 'historic' perspective of the inner city by cycling atop the wall. Good workout as well, for a total of 14km for the entire circumference, in just 2hrs. That includes photo taking and reading the historical write ups of significant events involving the city wall during the different dynasties. Best to do it in late... More

We saw the wall from a number of locations. The best view is at night time when the wall is illuminated. The watch towers built in Chinese Pagoda style looked great.
