Having never been to China before this visit, I was eager to soak up as much history as possible. The walls are certainly an impressive sight, even from the other side of the river but more so up close. I didn't have the time or energy in the sweltering heat to go up on to the top of the walls,... More

Now that the missing piece of the wall, destroyed for the railway station, has been restored, it is complete again. Worth a visit to wonder how they did it at the time. The watch towers that are missing I understand are slowly being rebuilt. A bit pricy but one of the few examples of a complete city wall in the... More

This is about the only thing in Xian. It circles the city - recommend to either golf cart around it or cycle around. The wall is complete, it looks good in the day and is really attractive at night. China are trying to tidy up their act - the scruffy areas are being tidied and "removed". The approach to Xian... More

Well, disappointed with Xiangyang. We should not have stayed 2 nites. We wanted to leave after just one nite. There almost nothing interesting. The only place we sort of enjoyed was one Buddhist temple. The ancient wall was a let down. If you have seen Great Wall in Beijing or any other place, you definitely will not enjoy this. The...

This is a must see. One of the only cities left in China that has the whole city wall still up. You can walk around it or you can rent a bike. We saw families eating a picnic lunch on the wall. It's a great place to go for a few hours plus it has beautiful song views.

This is the ancient wall which was built century ago in order to protect the city and protect their soldier without exposing theirselves. This wall encircle Xi'an city. If im not miscalculate there are 74 stair to get on to the wall. The wall is a landmark of the city so you must visit whenever you come to Xi'an. The... More

Old City with huge doors, now has fashion shops and food stores inside. Very busy in the weekends as you would expect.

Nice view, though it was compromised by heavy air pollution. They have bike rentals, though the cobbled wall looked like it was difficult for some riders. Great to walk, though.

Now you can rent a bike on the top of the wall and go around it. It's 14 km all around and a great thing to do if you like that sort of thing.
