Wall

How do you get up on the wall as I have heard it is difficult to get to because of the traffic is there an underpass anywhere.

You mean the entrance through South Gate.

They have more than 10 entrances around the wall. Just avoid the entrance of South Gate, no underpass there, you need to cross in heavy traffic. You just walk along the wall root eastwards from South Gate and find a entrance to get on.

Hi Lyn,

Accessing the city wall at Xi'An is easy. You will need to climb some steps to get up/down but that's about it. There are many entry points. It is well worth the effort.

have a fun trip

We will be staying at Mercure Renmin Square so I think our nearest gate would be East Gate but as OrientalRed said there are ten entrances perhaps there is one nearer to us. Glad to hear there are underpasses, will avoid South Gate. So where would our nearest entry be from Mucure Renmin Square.

I made a mistake we are staying at Soiftel but think it is still in the same complex as Mercure. Thank you vonhist for the directions.

Hello:

there are two entrances you can climb up the ancient wall ( South gate)of xian( you can walk to it from your hotel), what you mentioned is the entrance located inner of the wall, you have to walk across the heavy traffic main street to do it, but external entrance around the Arrow tower ( 箭楼) from it , you can clomb the wall easily.

Enjoy you stay in

Walk eastwards to Stele Forest. The entrance nearby is absolutely safe. By either enter point of South Gate you need to cross the traffic.

Hello:

If you use the taxi, you can ask the taxi driver drop off to the arrow tower ,you don't have walk cross the street. But you will walk to it, you need cross the street either inside or outside the gate.

Enjoy you stay in
