“worth visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

The walls have physically encircling the whole city. You can get up to the wall from different gates (I think there are more than 10 gates) situated at the 4 different side. If you want too, you can rent a bicycle and ride round the walls; should also check what are the times for the change of Guards, worth seeing.

“Best place for a run in Xi'an and I can see my favourite bar!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

Best place for a run in Xi'an and I can see my favourite bar (The Belgian Bar) on the east section of the wall. You can also ride a bike on it! Highly recommended.

“The Wall.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Nice walk and you get to see the city from higher up. Bring lots of water if you are going on a hot day.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

The Xi'an City Wall is massive, encircling the old town with 13 km of beautifully restored wall. Numerous notice boards described various parts and functions of the wall, along its length.
There were no bikes to hire on the day we were there however the wall is broad enough to enjoy a leisurely walk around it. An added bonus was the museum located inside the restored wall itself. The museum had the original remains of the wall preserved along with numerous artifacts found within the area. We visited in winter so visitor numbers were low. I had a very enjoyable couple of hours roaming the wall and enjoying the view of Xi'an.

“Tang Dinasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

These are the largest and best-preserved ancient fortress in the world. There is a gate in each of the four sides, the gate towers over each gate look lofty and magnificent and form a tight defense engineering system. The best and coolest way to explore it is by rending a bike! You can pay for an hour and get to cycle calmly to two of the four main gates at the top. Below you can see the ancient city on one side and the modern part on the other. Enjoy the view and have fun!
