I would recommend planning some hours to walk on it or rent a bike. It's huge and unique in the world.

“Not as big but still a Great Wall”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We went up on the wall at the South and East gates. Easy to walk on as its nice and flat. Toilets, snacks and souvenirs (of course) up there. We hired bikes and rode from East to South gates which most fortunately is a slight downhill run anyway. There is a huge Chinese Year of the (whatever) animal up there. 2013 is a snake year. There are a couple placed between each gate. South gate has a very nice coffee shop (Queen Coffee) and there is a drum show with guys dressed as warriors at 4.30pm but not sure if it is always there. I really recommend it - would be awesome if you could be up there as it gets dark as the gates are lit up and from the South gate you can see the Bell tower which looks fantastic at night

“Great way to appreciate the city”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Like: It's been restored and its now possible to do an entire circumference of the city, and it's a lot wider and flatter than you would expect from such a historic fortification.
Dislike: Not really the walls fault, but traversing it by bike or electric car is (allegedly) very bumpy. Not good if you're there with a pregnant wife!

It is a very special experience - stand on the ancient wall, and watch the old city gates, the moats, and in the background ar high rise buildings.

“In the heart of the City”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

The big acient wall is a nice place to visit and have a relaxing time walking and see the city from above. Every place you go in Xian has a place in history.
