The full bike ride round the wall takes about two hours at a reasonable pace, and this is coming from someone who doesn't cycle daily for commuting. You can hire a regular bike or tandems for a certain number of hours, and you can drop them off at any of the four cycle points if you don't fancy doing the... More

It was snowing he day we went so we Couldn't ride bikes! The walk was really lovely with lots to see over the edges of the wall and also the buildings. It's only one of three city walls left in China, so definitely worth a look

Bring a face mask the air quality isn't that great and wear comfortable shoes it's a lot of walking. If you have a student ID bring it for the 27CNY admission versus 54CNY full price admission. Also highly recommend getting basic Chinese phrases translated and noted because it's hard to find many English speakers. Bring bottled water stay hydrated.

On the outside of the historic Xi'an City Wall is a pathway that will take through parks, cobble stone pathways and a surrounding waterway. I walked the whole 14 km in 4hours 40 minutes. It was really enjoyable to see locals out exercising, play badminton and ping-pong, dancing and playing musical instruments. At every midpoint in the 4 sides of... More

I visited there closely after the spring holiday was finished. You should buy a ticket before you enter into the walls area and go up. I started at the South Gate and strolled through the wall .. nice walk through the many colorful figures built for the children. During night it is full of many lights and even more beautiful....

I love how Wall looks so great still. We climbed up top and walked around. They rent bikes so you can ride around the top. So cool. We didn't do it but I would have if it wasn't so cold out.

It is hard to imagine times when people used walls to protect cities and people. But it is good to imagine it. Inside there is lots to see and to purchase. The walls are ultra-thick. Ultra! Another fascinating place.

An interesting experience walking along the Xian city wall, where you can even hire bicycles to travel along the whole wall.
