  • The Xian Wall is a nice and beautiful walk. The wall is so wide that even if there are people you feel spacious and the views of the city are beautiful. Xian is a city that has a lot to offer, worth staying for a couple of days.

  • Xi'an city Wall is likely to be visited in the month It's a great evening. But the time is limited, the only short walk on the top has a café and sells little sweets, but the price is quite high. There is also a sightseeing car and bike tour service, but not sure about the price. When the dark is open, the light is very beautiful.

  • The city wall is such a cool experience. My friend and I biked along the wall and had a great time. The architecture in Xi'an is beautiful. You can purchase a tour throughout the day in which you can ride in a trolley car or do a self guided tour and rent a bike. Surrounding the wall are cool restaurants and things to do so you'll definitely be entertained.
  • Great story to beautiful views. Riding on a bike on top of the wall gives you amazing views of the city. A bit bumpy at times but still fun. Good way to learn more about the city and having fun at the same time. Great place for tourists or travelers to go to if visiting in Xi’an.
