The City Wall in Xi'an is amazing. Lovely walks with beautiful Tao Xun blow out music. 7,000 years of history at the stone age. It is not that easy to play but need lots of practice. Just as ornament and hopefully to master it one day.

We only had about 1.5 hours and so spent our time on the wall. We did not get to the Bell Tower or Drum tower on this visit. I think a very minimum 2 full days needed in Xi'an.

The city wall is amazing from up close, far away, on it, under and around it, the bikes on top of the wall to rent however the seats are quite hard on your bottom so be warned unless they have recovered them since January. A great experience and was very glad we stayed inside the wall near the south gate... More

An interesting attraction of Xi'An, worth the visit if you have the time. It is the oldest remaining city wall of China.

Still worth a visit. As is true of the Great Wall, the city walls did not keep out invaders, something an American president should learn.

Impressive walls - there was a cycle race going on. With more time we might have walked round further. Some hire bikes. Would be good on a clear day to get better views.

Although the air was quite gray, left over from the sandstorm, it still was beautiful to bike along the massive wall. And seeing it lit up at night is so beautiful.

Enjoyable walk around this amazing structure with very nice views. Our tour guide was very good with information but due to limited time we were only there for a short time, unfortunately.

Interesting old city wall with 4 double gates. Great to walk on or for riding a bike. Almost level once you climb the stairs to the top, but somewhat uneven paving stones in places.

I'll let the other reviews speak to the walls themselves, which are quite grand and well looked after. Instead I'll focus on the bikes that you can rent. We were really looking forward to riding the full circuit around the old city walls (14km), expecting a relaxing and scenic experience. Unfortunately we regretted our choice almost immediately. Firstly, the company... More
