Very well preserved ancient historical site. Definitely worth checking out, especially at night. Can be busy.

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, which I believe you can do. It's also lovely to walk around the old streets, which have been preserved quite well, if you look past the modern shop fronts. I was staying at the Celebrity City hotel and caught #6 bus from down the road, which drops you near the walls and then came back on the ferry which regularly crosses the river.

We saw it from both the east and the south gates, in the morning and evening, and it's lovely. The wall and watch towers are lit up in the evening, which gives it a really pretty look. There are 70 steps in the stairs to the top and the view is great, could spot no elevators so one should be able to climb the stairs. At the top bicycle are available for hire and it's fun to cycle on top of the wall- it's really wide. One must climb up the stairs of the main General's watchtower as the vantage view is even better. Teenagers will love the experience

Spent a couple of hours on this wall. You can walk, go on a cart or cycle around the top of this wall. Was only going to stay at the spout where you go up but then decided to cycle. So pleased we did.as when we had stops and looked over the sides saw lots of different parts of the city. We went during the day and loved it. In the evening we wandered around part of the base and joined in with locals who come out and dance to music and have fun. The wall is lit up and looks majestic

We arrived in Xian in the late afternoon and were shocked by the cloud of pollution hanging over the city. We left for the city wall in the late afternoon and arrived just in time for the drum show which was very different. We then walked along the wall as the lanterns were coming on. We then went down into Calligraphy Street and walked along to the Muslim Street Market. The whole area is very atmospheric and deserves a few hours of just strolling aroung. The street market is very lively with loads of lovely food stalls. Great atmosphere.

I recently rented a bicycle and rode around the city wall and I absolutely loved it. The wall itself provides a unique historical experience, imagining what it must have been like back in time long ago. Riding the bike around was great fun and you are able to easily see the entire place. I imagine many people start off walking around, only to wish they had rented a bike, and ending up stopping only partially completed. It would be a very long walk. The 100 minute renal period gives you just enough time to easily make it around and stop (briefly) at the may sites along the way. If you take a very leisurely approach with many extended stops it would be easy to go beyond the time. I would also recommend trying to receive one of the newer bikes, I was given what was clearly one of the older model's and the bike was very heavy, difficult to pedal, and the chain came off during the ride. One more thing, I recommend starting at the south gate, the bike rentals ( and the gate itself) are open the latest around the wall, so there is no rush on time if you go later in the day or around sunset.

We entered and parked at the east gate. But arriving 420pm and biking the whole wall in an hour is not a good idea,14.28 kilometers, the bike shops close at 530. We were so tired from doing that and the bad part is that you couldn't appreciate the wall itself from biking fast (It is a good workout though). And we didn't have any nice photos. It was fun and ill do it again but in 2 hours. Hahaha

The wall was great and awesome. Just imagine living there during that time. Just think of the power the Emperor has.

This place is definitely a must!

This is not a bad little wall in Xiangyang but please do not get excited from many of the pictures and explanations in other reviews. Some people have reviewed Xi'an city wall and put pictures from there in their review so pay attention.
This is nothing like Xi'an wall, it is just a small-ish Ming Dynasty city wall in a small city of Hubei province. Nice but nothing to get excited about.

Don’t expect that much. I was in this city visiting a friend and wouldn’t go here just to see it. But if you are already there it is nice to walk around.

An ancient majestic wall overlooking the Han river, it currently encloses a walking street and could thus be crowded during holidays. One of my favorite places to be in Xiangyang.
