  • In a city was so many relics of the past the City Wall stand out. Pur night visit was most impressive.  more »
  • In Xi'an you have to walk on the city wall and than you add the Muslim Street! It's very busy and there are a lot of different scents.  more »

  • 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.
