Great history behind the city walls, containing a city within and a city out with. Included as part of our tour , this was a great highlight after flying our kites and visiting the Big wild goose Pagoda. We cycled our bikes round the walls taking in all the cites. I would love to return one day and walk round.

Included as part of our tour, this was a definite highlight. Would definitely recommend it if you have any free time in Xian. They have tandem bikes as well which added to the fun.

It is definitely worth going to see the wall, if only to marvel at its sheer scale and the way it has been so well preserved. But once you are up there, there is not a massive amount to do, other than hire a bike and cycle round it to soak up the views.

On top of the City Wall you can rent a bicycle for a couple of hours and look down on the rooftops inside the Wall. Very pretty to walk on the outside the Wall during the night with lights and all.

Amazed at the size the wall is as well as the length around. You can rent a bike if the weather is right ( not in winter) to ride around the wall. Tray not to go in winter we had snow and very cold far colder than Canada lol but would not miss it would go back again

Must do on bikes around the walls of Xi'an. You can hire bikes on the wall although you need deposit for either tandem or single bikes. It takes around 1 1/2 hours to get around but it gives you a spectacular view of the city. Stay until nightfall and watch the fabulous lights bring the walls to life. Surreal place... More

We walked up the south tower and walked around for a while. Unfortunately, we did not have enough time to ride bikes which we now regret badly. It was so beautiful up there.
