Great place for a stroll.

Well preserved old city wall and a great place for a stroll or bike ride along it with great views over Xian.

I love how Wall looks so great still. We climbed up top and walked around. They rent bikes so you can ride around the top. So cool. We didn't do it but I would have if it wasn't so cold out.

It is hard to imagine times when people used walls to protect cities and people. But it is good to imagine it. Inside there is lots to see and to purchase. The walls are ultra-thick. Ultra! Another fascinating place.

An interesting experience walking along the Xian city wall, where you can even hire bicycles to travel along the whole wall.

The city wall is so huge! It is cool to be on a wall that stood through time. Absolutely loved the walk and the views from up there.

We love the city wall and it's spectacular at night when the Lantern Festival is on for Chinese New Year. The wall itself is about 13-15Km long and very well preserved. The lantern festival covers a long area and has all sorts of lanterns and characters lit up. Some are huge, such as the Rooster (for this year), Dragons and... More

I visited the Wall during Chinese New Year and during the Lantern Festival. There were lanterns all around the wall and on top. It was beautiful, especially at night.

Our trip to Xi'An was during winter but we didn't let the frosty snowy weather stop us from hitting the streets to check out what it had to offer. You have to pay to walk the city wall but it is worth it. The views of the city are wonderful. It's about 14kms around the whole wall. We only did... More

If you have the time, walk or bike (bike rental can be found at a few stops along the wall) around the top of the ancient wall. The juxtaposition between the ancient wall and modern day skyscrapers is quite impressive. There are also points of information and historical anecdotes around the top of the wall which are interesting to read.

I was here alone in the hot day. It wasn't comfortable, that's why I spent here only one hour. You can take bicycle for a rent, because the distance is very long for walking by legs. Here are always beautiful sunsets. I think, this place is perfect for friends' or family's walking. And it's romantic too. Also you can buy... More
