Interesting to see the old city surrounded by the new. Our tour group stopped here and we were welcomed with a very touristy "welcome ceremony" with costumes and music. Immediately following, they take a picture of the tour group and try to sell it for $16U.S. per person, which is a bit cheesy. Enjoyed seeing the wall and learning about the history, though. It is lit up at night with beautiful lights. Worth seeing, but the "welcoming ceremony" is not needed.

They did a great job of renovating this wall. A fun trip (about 12 km) with nice views of the city.
Make sure you verify the bike saddle height. I am 1.8m high and couldn't get the saddle to stay at a reasonable position.

We went to Xi'an to visit the famous Terracotta Warriors but were impressed by the City Wall and its history, You can walk, bike or take a golf cart around the wall which has been impressively restored. The lights of the Wall and the Bell Tower at night are a must see.

Entrance fee for 54 rmb, I arrived there around 4:30pm, just perfect for the sunset. You will take beautiful photos for sure around this time. I wanted to rent a bike to ride around like many others but the line up was too long. I decided to walk instead from the South Gate to the North Gate, a good 3/4 hours of slow walk if you wanna enjoy the view and take nice photos. Unforgettable moments! I highly recommend it, so special!

If you enjoy looking at older than medieval walls, then this rammed earth wall at least more than 600 years with a filled in moat covered with wide streets is the one for you. You can bike on top of the wall for miles. Watching the kamikaze type driving by Xian drivers below from the top of the wall was so entertaining. No accidents, but they sure do not follow normal traffic rules like in the West.
