A Worthwhile Hour Spent

It was a hazy day and we walked rather than take a bike around the wall. It should be very nice on a clear day, if there is ever a clear day.

Worth a walk or cycle to get a good view of Xi'an. We were there during the Chinese national holiday and while it was crowded there was some amazing entertainment laid on which we would most likely not have seen had it not been the holidays.

I mean its a fun place to take a bike ride and see the city from above but otherwise its just a wall and its HUGE. If the sun is out, I am sure its good for photos as well. My experience was that it was one place in China where they were not maximizing what they had. They could... More

The Xi'an City wall is the only city wall that is still in tact, and definitely worth a visit. Our cycle around the wall was one of the highlights of our trip.

In mid town, a small gem of an ancient, walled city. No effort to see it if you're staying in Xian, a short distance from city center.

Picture a wall on which you could drive a car comfortably, completely surrounding the old city. Incredible well preserved, it is truly a sight to behold. There's a great antiquities gift shop atop the wall at one of the main gates.

It may cost a few dollars but the 1 hour long ride gives you an insight into the distance around the wall. Otherwise if you are capable ride a bike. Quite incredible to think that its one of the few intact walls that surround the city still left standing in China. This is the second time I have been here... More

Riding a bike around the Xian City Wall is one of the highlights of any visit to China. but make sure you allow more than enough time to stop and enjoy the experience. Unfortunately the new bicycles that they rent out on the wall no longer have the baskets of the old ones, so therenis nowhere to put a water... More
