Few world cities have such a beautifully preserved wall that you can use to circumnavigate the city. The view from atop is spectacular and at night it's even better. A must see and do.

The wall is very atmospheric, especially in the dark when it is wonderfully lit. It is a huge wall and extends around the old city. Various roads come through the gates of the old walls - when you travel through you see how thick they...More

The old city wall has been restored beautifully. All the turrets are amazing as are the views out towards the new part of town. The river and the moat look great and it's beautiful at night when it's all lit up . During the day...More

There is not a baggage storage.

Yeah it wasn't too expensive ~ 45 Yuan each. We got two tandem bikes and we had them as long as we wanted. At the gate we went to we bypassed the closest bike rental and walked maybe 200 yds to a second one. The bikes... More
