If you have ttime to cycle the wall that is ideal. At night, it is such an evocative sight. The bell and drum towers in particular give you a real sense of where you are, bang in the cent of this vast and populous nation, in its ancient capital. Traffic jams are pretty standard. Lorries breaking down regularly block roads... More

A great way to see the city is to walk or ride a bike along the top of the wall. Bicycles are available for hire. There's shrines and old battlements along the wall with information boards. Even the rubbish bins look cool and its a great way to spend a few hours. I recommend walking to the exit that leads... More

this is a beautiful well preserved wall enclosing the old city. Is it worth biking the 14 kms? yes, if you feel like exercising and the weather is nice. the view from the wall is not that great. so if you are in a hurry, just go to one of the gates (the south gate is the most convenient as...

This was the most exiting experience in Xian. (Terracotta army was educational). You can walk or ride a bicycle along this almost 13.6 km long wall. Contrasting with the wall, stay modern buildings. Sunset or sunrise time are the best for taking pictures.

Visited this as part of a Wendy Wu tour and found it very impressive and interesting. I believe it is the only complete city wall still totally intact in China and it is in good condition, worth a visit.

You can walk round take a mini bus or cycle but it does go on for a long way. Some great views of the city though be warned there aren't many exits so if walking allow plenty of time

Our guide with China Odysey Tours arranged for the bicycle rental. What a reat way for the family to ride along the wall. We were able to stop and look at the displays. We also stopped to look at a fruit and veg market next to the wall and got some great video footage. This wall is very well preserved... More

The city wall is best viewed from the water so take the junk ride if you can. We thought the wall was worth seeing but is not a 'must see' (whereas the terracotta warriors are).
