“Impressive bike riding on the wall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

One of the best activities you can do in Xi'an is riding a bike on the wall. You can make the round trip in maximum 1h and it is really enjoyable. You can also choose a tandem bike, if you want to share this experience with someone else. During the riding you can see a merging between old and new Xi'an.

“Wall to wall impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

The Xian city wall is a marvel to engineering. Built to barricade citizens against aggressors - but no-one ever came to Xian to do battle ! You can walk, jog, cycle around the whole wall which is still in its entirety and about 20 feet wide and fairly flat. A really pleasant walk day and early evening, though beware of hawkers on warm evenings. A splendid attraction.

“Xi'an City Wall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

Very impressive. Even though it rained the day we visited. I would recommend a visit. The view on top of the walls is worth the trip to the City Walls were in old times armies guarded the City.
