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.

This place is huge at approx 14km to do the complete circuit. We walked halfway before opting to hire a tandem bike for the rest of our journey. The tandem bike was so much fun. Your tour around the 14 square kilometres of the old city gives you a great perspective and view of all its features. A visit to Xi'an is not complete without an outing on one of China's oldest, largest and best preserved ancient city walls.

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 stoned ground which makes riding rather strenuous. That said, it is an excellent workout. Bike rental time limit = 2hours. Starting from the South gate, We realised 45minutes had passed when we reached the West gate. So, riding like crazy we managed to return the bikes with 10 minutes to spare. BUT you can always return the bike at any of the other stations at the gates and walk the rest of the way. Or alternatively, just pay for a buggy ride back. :o)
