This is where we gained access to the Xi'an City Wall. Very impressive structure with a massive interior square, over looked by the large Archery Tower. Well worth the visit. One can also rent bicycles to travel around the circumference of the City Wall. We were temped, but the poor air quality minimized our visit.

On the South gate is where you enter the wall to travel on top of it. It was a hall and different displays, but the price here is to be able to walk around downtown xi'an on the wall. At night there are lights all over the gate,

You could see for miles. You can hire a pushbike to ride along the top of the wall if you like, beats walking! The city now has expanded out past the wall but you can imagine what it would have been like way back then. We bought some gifts at a shop on the wall. There was a couple getting... More

It is possible to hire a bike and just simply go around on top of the wall. It takes around 1 hour to do and it is very interesting experience.

We were here twice, once on our tour and once on our own. We were really impressed with the site, so we decided to come back and rent bikes. It's about an 8.5 mile bike ride. The bikes were inexpensive. It took us just under two hours to complete the trail (with stops). I would recommend starting at the East... More

Interesting to see the historical wall around Xi'an, and the moat which protected the city. Only need a short visit.

My trip to this city was with nearly empty mind. I had only heard and seen documentation about the terra cotta warriors. But after been walking around in the city and took the bicycle ride around on top of the city wall, I was so impressed by the things I saw. From the wall I looked in to the city... More

Go inside the building to get great views from the side windows. Spend about an hour here and move on
