“Loved the bicycle ride around the elevated perimeter!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

It was really fun to 'rent' a Tandem bike and zoom around..taking about an hour to finish the ride. Lots of Interesting scenery outside and inside the walled area. Please Try It. I am Not Young...but found it quite Easy on the Tandem...smile.

“Wonderful to wander the entire wall distance, great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

The ancient city wall of Xian is huge! We walked for a bit, then rented pushbikes to travel another half of the distance, then walked the final quarter again. There are several towers and other historic buildings dotted along the wall, and with views down into the city, there was always something to see. Being able to rent bikes was a great idea, and added a novelty to the day. It is so huge, that crowds of visitors were spread out. We were there to see a group of 'soldiers' in their historic costumes come up the stairs, march for a section, then head back down the stairs. Great to see. We went back at night time to look at the wall and towers lit up - beautiful!
A must see and do while in Xian!

“Worth a brief visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

It is worth climbing the stairs, but not really too much to see. Soak up the atmosphere and stroll along...

“A nice bike ride”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

It's a cool 90 minutes biking on the city walls. There's a lot of smog so the view isn't always perfect.
