“Xi'an City Wall: South Gate Bike Ride”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Morning bike ride along the wall - nice peaceful ride is an escape from hectic streetscape. Buy ticket to get on top at South Gate, walk to the top of stairs and go right for 25 meters to bike rental. Have to leave a deposit of 200 RMB per bike which is returned provided that you bring back to same station.

“8 miles of Fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Got a 203 bus into the old town and walked back to the South gate of the City wall entrance fee 54REM per person. Climbed the steps up-to the top of the South Gate with the intension of hiring a bike but the queue was massive...good tip here walk to the East gate which I suspect was quicker than waiting in the queue! Hired a tandem from there 80 Rem for 100 mins and cycled the remainder of the wall (even with photo stops only took 75mins) back to the South gate great fun and well worth the effort, another great experience.

“Great Architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Not as big as the Great Wall of course but every bit as magnificent. The architecture and long living structure is incredible to see.

“20 minutes worth”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Got to the top of the wall and spent most of our time watching the traffic nothing else to really say about the place.

“worth a short side trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

It's well-preserved, pretty and historic. You can rent a bike a go around the whole wall. Definitely worth a short visit if you're in the area but I wouldn't call it a major attraction.
