My wife and I spent a day exploring the city wall. Paid the small admission fee and climbed the stairs.
The wall itself is huge! Very wide and well maintained. There are places to rent bicycles, and you can ride the full distance around.
We rented bikes and rode them halfway around on the top of the wall. I believe normally you can go all the way around but there was some construction that prevented this. It is pretty flat with some very small inclines. We visited on a...More
There was a portion of the wall under renovation so we were limited to riding around half way, and then returning to the origin. This was included wthin our multi day tour of China with China Highlights, Not a great deal to see along the...More
The wall is so well preserved and affords wonderful views...on the inside is the ancient city, on the outside the cityscapes of the new city. We rented bikes and did the entire 15 km. Ramparts are located all around the perimeter with historic watchtowers too....More

Great place to see history and culture. You can rent a bike and bike around too. We walked a leisurely pace and saw the moat and many gorgeous buildings. A good piece of history not to be missed in Xi’an.
It’s another Chinese city wall, pretty but not worth paying to see as you can see all of it when walking around the city. It’s nice and gives a good view on top but there’s more to see and do in the city itself.
Once you leave you cannot renter. It’s very inexpensive to get in around 8 US dollars. I would recommend renting the bikes it’s a lot of fun and you can ride at your own pace. Stopping and viewing the city it’s beautiful.
