“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

The city walls were impressive - granted not on the same scale as the Great Wall, but still fascinating. It was interesting to see the old vs. modern homes next to each other from the wall's vantage point.

“An Easy 13 Kilometre Bike Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

This was an unexpected addition to our trip. The day was overcast and cold, but it was perfect weather for bike riding. All flat, cobblestone foundation path, with the opportunity to look down into the real world of a chinese city. The bikes were easy to handle and you just follow the wall. Lots of photo opportunities.....you are given one hour and forty minutes to ride the circuit. Very do-able

it was rebuilt in ming dynasty which is about 600 years ago .it is now the only intact city wall left in china .it is about 16to 18meters wide from bottom .and 12 to 14 meters wide from top .whole city wall is 13.7 km long .
it is amazing wall .especially cycling on the wall is one of top ten interesting things to do in china .
you can rent a single or bouble bike or wall .it cost 40 yuan per person .can be finished about one hours .also can see the beautiful moat from top .many watch towers still left on the wall .
there are three towers for each gate .like gate tower .arrow tower .and main tower .
people can do different types exercise on the wall .like walking .cycling .or explore the whole wall by golf car .the night view of the wall even more better .the whole city wall will light up .looks very shinging and beautiful .

“Great for a bike ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Get to the top of the Xi'an City wall and rent a bike for the 20 kilometer (13 mile) ride. Flat except for a few slight inclines. Stay out of the bums and avoid the stairs. It is great during the day but an evening ride is fantastic.

“Well kept historical structure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Taken there while on a tour. This is massive, don't know how long. When up there you can see over the city, from its different angles. Unlike the Great wall of China, you can walk about easily as it is quite wide, but watch out for the cyclists. Very quiet area to stroll in and take in the surroundings.
