Wonderful bicycle ride around the city walls

We rented bicycles at the entrance gate, and rode slowly around the walls. The ride is a little bumpy, but lovely and scenic, and takes about 2 hours.

Beside the biggest the city world in the world, this the best place to have brief look of the surrounding. I would recommend to go there before sun dawn and experience the light at the night. The lighting at the night definitely another must do list . If you really want to finish the whole wall, I recommend to rent... More

Would recommend to take bike tour available on the city wall (you can rent a bike on top of the wall, close to the entrance to the wall). Walk around the wall is also good exercise and great way to see the city. But be ready :) wall is about 13.4 km.

A good place to visit to get an idea of the history of the old Xi'an city and the old city itself. Though the buildings inside are now all modern buildings with offices and shopping centres, from the wall you can get an idea of what the city would have looked in historic times. The wall top is very wide... More

Rent the bikes and go around the Wall. You can see the whole thing in about 2 hours, it's fun for kids and adults.

We hired ( a bit expensive) a bicycle to explore the top of the wall which helped a lot unless you want to hire a guide and 'golf cart' type tour.

Cycling on this wall would certainly be the best option. The wall is huge and long. It took us around 2 hours to cycle round the wall.

One of the only cities in China with a complete wall around it still intact. What's great is if you have the time you can cycle around the top. Note - young children are not allowed to rent a bike.

This is the largest and best preserved wall in China! The wall dates back 1400 years . Having been in China a couple of weeks we are already spoiled by having seen so many ancient reminders ...so we are not surprised by this. You can choose to bicycle around the 9 mile loop on top of the wall or just... More

We rented a double bike for 90 Yuan (+200 yuan deposit) and in about 80 minutes we did the entire tour of the city. It was funny and it offered the view of the city from all angles
