We biked the whole wall, which was over-kill. I think the wall looks cooler from below, and after the first few minutes you're thinking more about how bumpy the wall is and how crappy the bike is than about the view. A stroll along the moat at night when the wall is all lit up would have been better.

Travelled here as part of tour with my family. The walls and the history surrounding them are impressive. You can walk, cycle or get an electric car to take you around. For me I always feel you see far more by walking and taking in the amazing sights. A must while in Xi'an

Enter through the South Gate. This is the most restored and near the Muslim Street market. The Muslim Street is famous for its food stalls and market place.

The city wall is a very unique part of Xi'an, and even China. The fact that is still stands is amazing. Visiting the wall gives you some real perspective of the city and makes you think about what it would have been like, and used for, in the past. The wall is pretty long and can take a while to...

Easy to find and worth a visit. Well organized tour if required in most languages if you want for 150¥ which seems the standard rate everywhere you go? Information overload.

We enjoyed riding bikes that you can either choose to ride individually or as a double. The wall is so clean and it provides an opportunity to see the city with both the old and new buildings. There are places to purchase small souvenirs and there are eastern and western bathrooms located on the wall that were pretty clean. It... More

We took a taxi from Westin hotel (20cny) and spent an afternoon inside the walled area. We went up to the top of the wall from the south gate and it was all very easy and not crowded. We hired a bike each. You have 2 hours for 20cny and we only just made the 12-13kms in that time. There... More

The City Wall was quite impressive to see. We did not walk too far because we were on a time limit, but we did get an idea of how this separates the old city from the new part of Xi'an.
