A very impressive structure in apparently excellent condition. It seemed to be everyone's first stop of the day so it was starting to get busy even at 8:30 AM. It would have been nice to have more time to rent a bike and circle the city on the top of the wall. They have feng shui exhibit in the old... More

Allow about 1/1/2 hours to do this if doing by cart will cost about 80 yen,if fit and agile try the bicycles about 1/2 the price.Very enjoyable

We each hired a bike and went halfway around the wall, which was great fun. You can just drop off the bikes at any of the stations a long the way, and we were happy after an hour of biking. What NOT to miss though, is that just underneath the wall on the outside, there's this lovely park. We walked... More

We had very little time on this wall, but what we did see was amazing, the history is very interesting and there was a real good view of the area below us. I would have rented a bike if we had more time.

My wife and I visited in october 2014. The entrance fee is $9.60 USD per person to enter. The wall is long 8.4 miles and elevated. It is very wide so it is nice to either walk around or rent a bike and ride around. We were going to walk around it to get some exercise. Of course the pollution... More

We hired bikes and cycled the 14Km perimeter in about an hour and a half. Recommend you do it early when there are no crowds.

Visitors to Xi'an should take time to visit the city wall. The climb up the many stairs is well worth the effort. Once up there you can bicycle around the top or take a small shuttle around to see the old city. Either way, you can't go wrong.

A good place to see the city. The wall is very wide so it's easy to even cycle on it. The wall is similar all the way so no reason really to walk the whole circle like we did, except for maybe to get some exercise.

Amazing how thick the wall is and how far you can walk along the top of the wall. There are also bicycles that you can rent and ride for miles. Hilton Xi'an isn't too far away. Take your cameras.
