My wife and 11 y/o son made the 9 mile revolution on bikes without too much of an issue. Wind picked up on one of the legs but made it through. Stopped for ice cream which helped. I would say this is a must-do if...More

We learned a tremendous amount about China’s and Xi’an’s histories, as well as something about our family tree. She provided numerous personalized dining and tour options,...More

It's a high long wall with occasional old closed Chinese houses built into the wall - reasonable views of modern city around the wall. Good if you can bike along it but a lot of steep steps to get on and off the wall. Worth...More

The sheer scale of the old city’s walls, all 14 kms of them is almost unbelievable. Generally 40 feet high and 40+ feet wide at the top and 50+ feet wide at the bottom. It’s amazing that the city has managed to protect them to...More

It was an interesting sight to see and the facts about the history are interesting if you can get them in English. We visited with a travel guide and benefited from her expertise.

A Walk on the Zian City wall offers a wonderful and unique few of the city and the wall. We highly recommend this visit.

I would highly recommend that you bike this. Super easy, you pick the bike up at the South Gate. The wall is flat, and fun to ride. All the way around is 10 miles. It is very cool to contrast the old and the new...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.

Open all the time! You now have to pay to go there. Not expensive like 10 US dollars. You can even rent bike to ride around. It is about 15 km around. Very nice!
