“Hot as hell but worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

Cheap admission - but then there isn't much on the other side of the barrier. It is impressive though - you can walk (or hire a bike and cycle) around the entire wall. There are watch towers every so often and refreshment stalls.

“Beautiful City Wall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013

This is a secret of Xi'an...there should be more said of this attraction. It is wonderfully restored and beautiful when lit up at night. A must have photo op.

Go early to beat the heat, rent some bicycles and bike the wall. Lots of fun for a few hours. We really enjoyed it !!!

“Tourist trap”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Watch out for your wallets, very busy and crowded area where you can get pick pocketed or fleeced by one vendor or another. The marketplace is interesting, but our tour company ushered us quickly off to "their" arranged restaurants every meal so we never had time to sample other offerings.

“Xian City Wall”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

What an incredible feat of architecture, it is huge. I think my guide said that it is 14klm by slightly less on the sides. The top is very wide, probably.as wide as a street. The whole thing has been really well maintained and the city walls were breached to allow traffic. You can see the mat and where the drawbridge was placed. The interior is able to sustain a small town
Many people were taking the opportunity to cycle round the whole structure, I believe you can leave the bike at certain points on the wall.
