“Unknown bonus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Never knew it existed until I booked our trip. Do yourself a favor and visit this place, unreal and so well preserved. Tip try to get ther in the morning and you could have the wall to yourself. Don't forget to hire a bike and ride around the city on the wall. What a blast.

“Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012 via mobile

We rented bikes and cycled around the whole city wall. It's quite a ride if you planning to go around the whole wall however so it should be noted. It's an approximate 13km round trip, but excellent fun! The views over the city are great.

“Super!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

We rented bikes and cycled around the wall. It was beautiful, nice views of the old city on one side and the new city on the other. To be honest, better than the warriors! Little expensive like all the sights in China.

“Great Job on the restoration...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

The city wall was restored to its original glory, which is quite impressive. A nine mile parameter surrounding the city, one can walk 12 abreast upon it!. Bicycle rentals are available (about 80 yuan for 90 minutes...). Shops are located within the complex. Interestingly enough, they have foot and bicycle races on the wall!

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Worth the effort. Find the time to cycle. Perhaps half a day or more to take photos, enjoy the food and so much more.
