Once you climb to the top the views back down looking at the gardens and the traditional Chinese temples are nice. It’s 13kms if you walk right around or you can take a little train ( which is ridiculously expensive). You don’t need to walk...More

We enjoyed walking on this huge wall and seeing a different view of the city of Xian. There were several couples having wedding pictures taken which were very striking in their red outfits.

It may be a good work around the walls. But I am not very sure if it is worth the time and ticket price given that the view are almost similar.

The top of "wide-walled Troy" was supposed to be wide enough for two chariots to pass. They could easily do that on this wall, with room to spare.

Excellent chance to see a historic part of the city wall - a reminder of centuries ago - you can practically feel the history being there

Once you leave you cannot renter. It’s very inexpensive to get in around 8 US dollars. I would recommend renting the bikes it’s a lot of fun and you can ride at your own pace. Stopping and viewing the city it’s beautiful.

I'd make some adjustments and split the Xi'an sights up differently for logistical reasons and to vary the types of things you experience each day. 3 days in Xi'an is plenty of time to do all this without being rushed--and you can and should add some things to your list. Two days possible but you would be rushing. The Huashan daytrip will be a long one--use bullet train back and forth unless you are heading further east to Luoyang after Huashan. If you have an evening flight out of Xi'an on...More
