Worth a walk around before doing the big wall.

Amazing view of Xian from the baby wall. Only visited during the day but would love to see at night. Visit early can get very crowded it is China after all.

We saw it from both the east and the south gates, in the morning and evening, and it's lovely. The wall and watch towers are lit up in the evening, which gives it a really pretty look. There are 70 steps in the stairs to the top and the view is great, could spot no elevators so one should be... More

It's amazing that Xi'an's wall is such a scenic focus when there are many walls in cities in China that are just as interesting. Night lighting adds interest as well. Gardens along the wall and moat are a likely site for families, musicians, and the sports-minded. A walk about this city wall is doable and entering the 2 gates leads... More

If your in Xian and have a couple of hours do the bike ride around the well preserved Xian city wall, also be sue to drive past the wall during the night as the lighting on the wall is done really well and adds to the overall presence of the wall. Compared to the the city walls you'll see in... More

Spend some hours to go around the city wall. By walk, cart or cycle, you will enjoy the discovery of the many faces of this city within as well as outside the walls. At night, lights illuminate the surroundings with colored lights.

We arrived in Xian in the late afternoon and were shocked by the cloud of pollution hanging over the city. We left for the city wall in the late afternoon and arrived just in time for the drum show which was very different. We then walked along the wall as the lanterns were coming on. We then went down into... More

Best time is to go in the evening and see the drum show at the base of the north gate....LOVELY EXPERIENCE. The wall looks lovely with all the lanterns and small watch towers lit up. The cycle hire is fun and easiest way to see most of the wall and the city.A experience not to be missed...but try and go... More

Best historic attraction in Xiangyang, especially at night! There are pool tables along with river front, right in front of the temple/wall.
