“Fantastic cycle at sunset”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

This is the top to do in Xi'an city! The city walls are bigger and more well maintained than you'd expect.

It was fantastic cycling at sunset, with beautiful colours in the sky and the temperature being a lot cooler than if we had done it earlier during the day.

“Worth a quick trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

We decided to check out the wall purely because it is the oldest of its kind, which drew me in. We didn't go to top however as it was very expensive, and due to the high pollution levels in the city, the view would definitely not be worth the price.

“You can drop your cycle at any cycle point”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Cycling the Wall is a fun thing to do however the rules are you have to do it in 100 minutes or you forfeit your deposit which means that you have to cycle pretty quickly and don't have a relaxing trip. We dropped our cycles at the cycle point before the one where we picked it up and wasn't a problem to get our deposit back. We were also told that we couldn't hire a bike because we were too old 60yrs+, however on explaining we cycle all the time in NZ they did allow us to hire a bike after all.

“A must do!”

We rent a bike and did the tour of the city walls by bike. It was wonderful! You have good view points from there.

“Hire a bike!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Quite a pleasant way to spend a morning or an afternoon wandering round the walls, I definitely recommend hiring bikes to cycle round. I'd also recommend doing it on a cooler day as we did it in the rain and our friends did it in scorching sun and by the sounds of things we had a far less draining experience.
