It is the best preserved city wall I have ever seen. It is long and wild, worth visiting, cycling on it is such great thing.

I thought this was going to be a waste of time, but at the end of the day we had a fun few hours cycling around the wall. You get to see some interesting parts if the city you wouldn't always see too. It's actually a little pricey to get on the wall itself, but probably worthwhile. Any students should... More

This attraction seems really overrated. While it is quite nice to walk/bike along the wall, there's really not much to see there. The wall itself is interesting, but you don't really need to go far away on it to see that. And the sights from the wall are quite boring, except maybe for the Lama temple on northwest corner. There's... More

If it is not too hot, rent a bike and ride around the city wall.. a nice ride with good views of the historical city inside the walls.. then after parking, walk around some of the side streets but keep your money safe. Generally it is very safe and people are nice, with lots of stalls where locals shop. Grab... More

I went on a tour with my 13 year old daughter. At Xian we rented bikes and made the nine mile ride around the top of the Ancient Wall. Actually, most of the wall is not ancient at all and is mostly smooth riding, though there are a few spots which still have old paving blocks and is quite bumpy.... More

Like most others we also rented a bike each and went around the City Wall once. It was hot, and we went around it pretty quickly so we were happy that we had some water with us. And you have to return the bikes from the same location that you rented them from (at least so we were told). The... More

My wife and I rented bikes (and helmets) and rode the walls around historic Xi'an. This is a great way to spend a couple of hours and to see the city from above. The bikes are well maintained and there are rental shops at each of the main gates (east, west, north, and south) if you should need service which... More

My boyfriend and I rented bikes and rode around the entire wall. It was great because we took amazing pictures of the city. make sure you take 3 or 4 bottles of water, it takes a couple of hours to ride the whole wall, and we went when it was hot! A must do if you like to exercise!
