This was a large wall built around the city for protection from their enemies. Some of the wall remains and you can walk along the top for nice views of the city.

This wall is huge and allows for a comfortable bike ride on a large stone walled road with parapets high enough to give you confidence that you are not going over. The old moat area is used for recreation such as tai-chi, whip cracking and badminton at least that was what we managed to see. On the inside we viewed... More

This wall is about 10 miles around a central part of the city. You can see its really impressive from pictures, it looks like a gigantic castle wall. The only problem is the views from the entire 10 miles are practically identical. There's a very nice park at the base of the outside of the wall and a view of... More

Take the buggy ride. Pay the yen price as the walk is verrrrry long. You can also take the bikes if you feel like being fit. The place is really cool to see and high up that over looks the old town from the new. The old town area is full of funky coffee shops and restaurents.

Enjoyed walking around the walls of the old city. You can hire a bike and cycle on them too which is fun. There's a bit of information once you are up on the wall - not a lot though so I didn't get to learn that much about when and how it was built. There are some snack vendors up... More

Had we known we would have spent an extra day and come back and hied one of the bicycles to ride around the wall. Having been to the Great Wall the size... More

If you are in Xi'an then go to the wall. But go early, it gets very crowded, and hot in summer. Part of the amazing cultural heritage of China.
