What travelers say:

Fantastic way to walk about and see a glimpse of the old city from above. We walked for a while the decided to jump on one of the buggy’s for a fairly decent price of around 25 yuan. As Xi’an is quite small this made for a great evening activity just as the sun was setting

Additional Information


Xi'an City Wall is a landmark of this ancient city. The city walls that we see now were built in the early years of the Ming dynasty and they are now more than 600 years old. The walls were built on the foundations of the imperial city of the Tang Dynasty and they are formed together with a series of defensive installments such as moats and turrets. At present, Xi’an City Wall can be accessed by many city gates. Visitors can choose the nearest one to them. The South Gate is the visitor entrance of Xi’an City and is also the city gate with more tourists. Cycling on the ancient walls is a good experience. Riding on the wall overlooking the ancient capital of the thirteenth dynasty, you will have a feeling of travelling through time.
