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.

I recently rented a bicycle and rode around the city wall and I absolutely loved it. The wall itself provides a unique historical experience, imagining what it must have been like back in time long ago. Riding the bike around was great fun and you are able to easily see the entire place. I imagine many people start off walking... More

Although the wall is impressive, it was obvious that most of what we saw was a re-creation. Scaffolding was up during our visit, preventing access to some areas. There is a gift shop on top of the wall. We walked along for a few hundred yards but weren't willing to commit to several hours of walking or biking to go... More

it is well worth spending some time walking or biking around the wall. It is a magnificent slice of history, massive is size and provides extensive views of the city and beyond (depending on what the smogs like of course). We rode around on a bike, which gave our backsides a good work out. It is a readily achievable ride... More
