The wall itself has been rebuilt quite a lot, however that doesn't take away from the ambience and beauty. Rent a bike, take a golf cart shuttle or walk (although if you're walking I suggest doing it early or later in the day out of the heat). The entire wall is 14km. Cycling takes about 2 hours, walking about 4-5... More

We visited the city wall twice during the day and in the evening. The city wall is as magnificent during the day and at night I recommend you visit it both times. At night it's just so vibrant with all the lights it felt like Christmas .

If you are feeling fit you can hire a bicycle and do the 13.7 round trip or just take a walk along the wall and absorb the view. You can also hire a trip around by golf cart if you wish

The city wall is a huge structure with a moat around it. You can walk or cycle along the wall but when we visited it was too hot for either.

Nice to see the wall not being rebuilt as in Datong. A nice city wall where you can hire bikes and cycle around if you wish. Would recommend the cycle around

I hired a bike at night, when the sun was going down. And this was beautiful, really good light, and not too crowded.

Xi'an's city walls are notable for being one of the best and most well preserved set of walls in China, and they're a very impressive sight. If you're biking them in the summer, be sure to wait until late afternoon in order to avoid the worst of the heat. Single and tandem bicycles are available once on the walls (access... More

It took us about an hour to cycle round the remarkable, huge city walls in Xi'an. It's cheap to rent bikes for a couple of hours and the views are great but the most fun is just zoning along the wide, flat walls which run uninterrupted for 3 or 4 km on each side. An amazing experience.

Rent a bike and cycle around the wall! It's cheap and it's a perfect way to see the whole wall, the old town and the new town. The trip around takes about two hours.
