“Great Architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Not as big as the Great Wall of course but every bit as magnificent. The architecture and long living structure is incredible to see.

“20 minutes worth”

Got to the top of the wall and spent most of our time watching the traffic nothing else to really say about the place.

“worth a short side trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

It's well-preserved, pretty and historic. You can rent a bike a go around the whole wall. Definitely worth a short visit if you're in the area but I wouldn't call it a major attraction.

“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!
