We went as part of Wendy Wu tours The walls surround the old city. The outer wall is lower than the inner wall, so the archers could shoot their arrows. It is possible to walk along the walls. There are steps up. All the buildings...More

Take your time, hired the bikes at the top of the wall from the north gate and paid for longer than what was needed. Reasonably priced gift shop up top. Easy ride, safe for beginners. Couple of bumps but it's a wide path and very...More

Rent a bike and cycle the top of the wall for best views of the city. It makes for a lovely couple of hours, and beats walking!

So loved walking around the wall. Go early or late as it does get hot up there. We walked half the distance and rode the rest. Wow is a long way around. Well worth the 90 CNY for the bike hire.

The city wall was great. Can run around the 13 or so km or hire bikes (including Tandem). Make sure you visit. Even better than my previous favourite city wall Londenderry.

Definitely worth exploring this area on foot, bicycle or take an Eco-Car. At 12 meters high and 15 meters wide, the 14-kilometer-long Xi'an City Wall is the most complete ancient city wall in China. It's also the most dramatic place to view one of China's...More

A pleasant stroll around the city wall is a must do if only for the views, you can hire a bike or just enjoy the walk.

Visited here on a very hot and humid day but enjoyed a leisurely walk along this wonderful wall seperating the old and new city. Many people took advantage of hiring a bike or cart. Great little souvenir shop on the wall was open to bargaining...More

Yeah it wasn't too expensive ~ 45 Yuan each. We got two tandem bikes and we had them as long as we wanted. At the gate we went to we bypassed the closest bike rental and walked maybe 200 yds to a second one. The bikes... More
