Very cool. Bike riding is fun but the bikes can be pretty beat up. Nice views all around the city with little museums and information signs all over, which are all nicely done with good English translations.
Beautiful! If you are in Xian, don't pass up an opportunity to see it. The subway is very convenient, fast, and easy to use. It and has stops near the entrances.
Absolutely worth to visit. You can go around the whole inner city. The wall is 16km long and you can rent a bike and ride on the wall. At night everything is in beautiful lights.
A well preserved and complete ancient city wall surrounding the modern Xian City. One can rent a bicycle and cycle the entire loop.
Rent either a bike to drive on the wall or simply walk, multiple entrances and exits if you get tired by walking. Absolute must-do if you visit Xi'an
This is a great afternoon if you get a bike. Be aware that many sections are quite bumpy so you may be a bit sore afterwards. Well-worth it though. During the tour, there are several highlights such as viewing the madness outside of the train station, the golden-roofed temple in one of the corners, and generally the wall itself. Built of the same stone and in the same style as the Great Wall (same emperor), but without the crazy amounts of tourists. No crazy sellers are on the wall and there are plenty of spaces to stop and eat or grab a coffee. A decent, ride on the wall will take maybe two hours without stops depending on your pace and number of photo ops you take advantage of.
Highly recommend renting a bike and going around the city wall. It's been 11 years since I went & the city has developed quite a bit.
Great place. Well managed and helpful staff / volunteers. English direction and instructions available. Many shopping and snacks available on the walkway. Must ride the bicycle. The wall is very big covering huge area. Very nice place. Have a nice time enjoying the beauty of Xian from various sections of wall. Take the hybrid electric car to visit the various sections of walls. Some or other festival / event is going on most of the times. I visited at time of lantern festival,it was awesome experience. I will always love to visit this place again and again. Thanks for services.
Xi'an City Wall is a big wall that surrounds the city. You can walk or bike the wall if you like. I did the bike and it was rough. Since the wall is so old there are many bumps and my body was feeling it later on. However, when we were there they were making lots of renovations to the wall so hopefully they can get it fixed so there are not as many bumps so you have a smooth path to cross. It was fun though biking around, but be aware of the time since you can rent the bikes on a limited time. It is also nice to see the city at night when it lights up so maybe try visiting around sundown so you can experience during the day and at night.
Definitely come if you enjoy checking out city landscapes. Rent a bike. You won’t regret it. Priced by 3 hours. Riding the whole wall, stopping for pictures for 2/3 of the wall, and rushing the rest of the way back to catch a train took 2.5 hours. And youll enjoy the breeze.
Must visit attraction. Awesome view from the city wall. Rent a bike and cycle around the wall. Won't regret on doing this!
The Xi'an great city wall, its great as it encircle the town, a ride on the bike take you at least 2 hour (with pit stop and exchange bike at North Gate area) and about 4 to 6 hours by walking. Please don't returned your bike once it looks about to finish, unless you are tired; as you can continue on the other side. The cobble stone is uneven, the seat cushion of your bike might not be helpful.
I enjoyed my stay at this hostel, they have very nice private rooms, dormitory, nice restaurant and good location... there many nearby things to do just walking distance....
One of the best places to visit in the city. I did a long run of 13.7 kilometers on the wall -- a full circle. You could also rent a bike or ride a electric shuttle.
I could rent bicycle. when the night, night watch was great. But street was toooooo long so i was easily exhausted.
