I couldn't believe until I climbed up on the ancient gate wall, I was in awe how beautiful and how wide the space is. There are bikes that one could be rented to ride along the entire city wall. I think that would be a wonderful experience to circle the entire ancient wall. The wall was absolutely well built.

It's almost impossible to know where the entrance is if you visit the north gate. The traffic is crazy and crossing the road is a little dangerous. Once you know where you are going it's an amazing wall and worth a visit.

In very good condition and it gives you a very good overview of Xian as you walk round the wall. WE visited early in the morning and it was great to look down on the busy street market and the numerous open air exercise classes taking place in the various parks. We suspect there must have been a large number... More

I rented a bike on the wall. The bike rental is up there. First I had a bike with low gear. I am Dutch and 6 feet so trying to get my peddle three times as fast as I am used to is not my thing. Traded it in halfway for one with a higher gear. Tip: check if the... More

This wall is amazingly well preserved for being over 600 years old. I have visited many old city walls in Europe, and this one has definitely stood the test of time. A great place to view the city from and take a nice walk. When in Xi'an, this is a must see destination.

We visited at the end of a long day, and if I return I will want to allow time to rent a bicycle and pedal around the perimeter of the wall. Historic architectural wall, very well maintained by the Chinese people.

We hired bikes and rode around. Great views. Well worth it and the food is Xian is scrumptious. It's always good to have your own water as it is pretty expensive on the wall.

You have to pay to go on the wall but it is a great way to get a sense of the inner city. The wall is wider on the top than I expected. We didn't hire a bike but were able to walk around from one point to another.

Really impressive, best preserved city wall in the world. Gives the city a really nice sense of space if you're travelling there - given so much of China to the foreigner seems so vast.

You can hire a bike and circle round the wall,you can't go a complete circus as they are mending some of it at present.
