Really nice walk

Nice view, though it was compromised by heavy air pollution. They have bike rentals, though the cobbled wall looked like it was difficult for some riders. Great to walk, though.

Now you can rent a bike on the top of the wall and go around it. It's 14 km all around and a great thing to do if you like that sort of thing.

The wall was great and in excellent condition. You can see good views of the city, that is if the pollution wasn't bad. They have booths that you can rent bicycles, which was an awesome way to exercise and see the entire 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.
