“Worth a brief visit”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

It is worth climbing the stairs, but not really too much to see. Soak up the atmosphere and stroll along...

“A nice bike ride”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

It's a cool 90 minutes biking on the city walls. There's a lot of smog so the view isn't always perfect.

“Worth it”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

It was a scorcher of a day when we visited but we hired a double bike ( 100 yuan I think) and set of around the wall it's a 15km bike ride all paved no cars or if your lazy take an electric golf cart bus. You can just ride between corner towers and enjoy regular ice cream breaks at the kiosks along the way. Allow 3 hrs to enjoy but if you just want to get up take a photo and have a shorter stroll an hour would be ok - but you would kick your self later as it's a really interesting walk. There was an entrance fee but it was so cheap I forgot was it was - maybe $5 aus????? Anyway it's worth it

“This is the East Gate of the city wall”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Ignore the tripadvisor map, this is the east gate of the city wall. Not as restored as the south gate, but nevertheless still an impressive citadel atop the walls. Don't make a special trip here, take the opportunity to hire a bicycle, or tandem and complete the circuit of the city walls. This way you can see every gate and only pay once. For those that don't think cycling is fun there are electric shuttle cars between gates too! The city wall is a must see attraction in Xi'aN.
