Beautiful place specially by night, Chinese people are very creative and all jobs there are fabulous, really recommended place to know and walk over the wall, it’s much better if you visit wall with your couple, family or friends!

The city wall allows views of the whole city and the bicycles (although not inexpensive) make for a truly unique attraction. Where else can one ride a bicycle atop fortifications 1000+ years old?

Easy to get to, up 100 steep steps, but quite beautiful with towers and archers houses. It is very big and strong, refurbished 20-30 years ago.

It's amazing that the cities are rebuilding their inner walls of times gone by. They will however be a draw for tourism. So I guess it will be a win win for the cities.

Rented bicycles to ride around the wall. Excellent way to see the city within the wall. Bicycles were not very comfortable but it beats walking. Be warned! It is nearly 14km around the entire wall. The ground isn't all smooth. Quite a bit of uneven...More

Our visit started from the South Gate on foot but later hired bicycles on the top of the wall and cycled the whole way around which took an hour and a half. It is thoroughly recommended if you want to get a sense of the...More

Agree with John P. Bike rentals are right where you come up the stairs. I think all the bike rental places on the wall are all the same company. You can rent from one and drop off at another. I did have to trade bikes at... More

Flying from Shanghai was short, but it was a hassle. My flight was supposed to land at 10:30pm and it landed about 3am. Thankfully my guide waited for me at the airport all night.
