I recommend starting at the head of the park and walking up to the South Gate from outside the city. It's beautiful! There's a moat and a park that runs along the entire wall. There is a small fee to go to the top of the wall from here but well worth it. Rent a bike at the top (again,... More

the wall has surrounded the central city. Entry fee is there. But, with that money, they have maintained the wall very neat and clean. Public toilets are available. You can hire a cycle or take a electric car to have a round around the wall.

Although there isnt much to see at the actual site, the City Wall is a must see when you are in Xi'an. You are able to rent bicycles or hire a "taxi" to bring you to different places along the wall. Its an excellent place to see how the city has grown throughout the centuries.

This is a great way to spend a few hours in the morning while visiting XiAn. The walls are enormous and cover over 14Km around the old city. Once on the wall you can rent bikes and burn around for a few hours and really get an appreciation of the architecture and the scale. The wall is ancient and thus,... More

It's most definately worth going to the top of the this wall, you get great views of Xi'an, and can get good views of the buildings on th wall. There is an opportunity to hire bikes to move around the wall. A good experience all round.

My husband was here 6 years ago and told me I had to walk the city wall. Well, we were really disappointed that it now cost $11 Australian dollars to simply do for a walk whereas it used to be free. However we paid it because we were there. It is a magnificent place to walk or cycle and we... More

the wall is worth renting a bike and riding around it. It is reconstructed but it is a nice afternoon.

I hired a bike on top of the walls and rode around the 14km walls, doing about half in daylight and half when the walls are lit up in lights. The city has expanded beyond the walls, which is interesting to see the walls remain whilst the city has grown. Really enjoyed the ride, the wall lit up by lights... More
