The ancient city wall cannot be missed as you explore Xi'an. You only realise the enormity of the wall when you climb the stairs up to the top. An ancient masterpiece where you can walk the entire wall around 14 kilometers. Views are good too.
You can just imagine yourself defending the city! Very wide and spacious! Plenty of room to walk, ride bikes or take a large covered golf cart to the different openings.
Bike, golf cart service rentals, souvenir shops and refreshments stands are located along the way....More
13.7 km long The Upper City Wall of Xi'an; most probably built in 14th century. It's a must visit place because of it's mesmerizing beautiful structure and also superb view of sunset. I took 200 minutes to cross the whole upper City Wall by walking....More
My friend and I enjoyed biking around the city wall. We took time to stop at the gates and corners to see the different watch towers and buildings. They are so colorful! Note that the wall is a bit rough in some places.
As you enter you do not realise the enormity of the city wall. As you climb the stairs you realise how big it is. We were going to walk but decided to hire a bike and ride around. Glad we did. You get a different...More

Yes, you can rent helmets when you rent your bike. You need a cash deposit to rent the helmets and bikes. I didn’t rent a helmet and it was ok. The wall can get busy with all the bikes but it is a fairly smooth ride.
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.
