Renting a bicycle to ride the wall is a fun way to get an impression of the city. Bring a back pack or cross body bag as the bicycles don't have a basket to put in personal belongings.

It was fun to ride round the nine miles of city wall and to realise the extent to which the people defended themselves. But you don't actually see much of the city itself.

Had a ball bicycle riding on the ancient wall. Great way to see this ancient site. It was easy to hire the bike & it was in decent condition. You pay a bond but get it back & the actual fee isn't much.

This place is very cool and we really wanted to go for a bike ride around the whole thing. The way the ancient wall has been restored and maintained is amazing. There are great views that you can walk around.

We love cycling and wanted a change from walking but have to say that the bikes were not very comfortable. Would not want to cycle much further on them.

Great by night dull by day - like many places this looks fabulous floodlit. By day it's a teensy boring. There are a lot of steep stairs.

We did a tour of the city wall by bike once we arrived in Xian. It is a great way to get around the 14km wall. The contrast between the building heights inside and outside the wall is unusual due to height restrictions within the city walls. Great way to see the city.

The City Wall in Xi'an is amazing. Lovely walks with beautiful Tao Xun blow out music. 7,000 years of history at the stone age. It is not that easy to play but need lots of practice. Just as ornament and hopefully to master it one day.

We only had about 1.5 hours and so spent our time on the wall. We did not get to the Bell Tower or Drum tower on this visit. I think a very minimum 2 full days needed in Xi'an.
