13 kilometers or 8 miles long, it is illuminated every night added with red lanterns. Don't miss the tour ON the wall by electrical car, great view on the city intra muros.

The 14 km bike ride was awesome. Spectacular city view from the 40 feet wall. Cold though, minus 4 degrees while we were there.

The City Wall is fantastic and expansive, riding a bike around the top of the Wall is the way to go, you can stop and go as you please. A beautiful way of seeing part of the city. Great photo opportunities in all directions, we only got half way around as we were part of a tour and had to... More

The wall as a left over from the past Emperors and a reminder of the history that Xi'an possess. An interesting sight for any visitor.

We hired some bikes and set off along the wall. The bikes were in good condition and reasonably priced. All the city gates were a sight to behold as well as the many different buildings and temples located near the city wall. Overall a great experience. Highly recommended.

Cycling can take 40 minutes along the wall. Taking the tram cars requires you to get down a couple of times.

The wall has been recently restored, and is a pleasant stroll on a nice day. Xi'an is an attractive city, and it's good to view it from eh vantage point of the City Wall.

I may be being mean here, but we didn't bother trekking to this wall as we had passed it several times by car and couldn't see the attraction - apart from the fact that it is incredibly old and you can cycle around the top. I think cycling around the Muslim quarter was more enjoyable and all the wall would... More

visiting the city wall is more worthy than the drum tower, both of which are icons of Xi'an. You may arrive the southern gate--the entrance by an underground walkway. On the top of the wall, you may feel the history and the modern city blending. The bird-view is especially charming during the sunset and the night with lights and lanterns... More
