What people are saying:

Very very very very, I am from the city wall on the south gate of Yongning Gate in the evening, and I went to Yongxing Square. The whole journey is more than 20,000 steps, but the wind blowing this evening, feeling the ancient city breath. Instead, the more the mood is more pleasant, a person slowly walking, watching the sun slowly falling, really enjoy.

Additional Information

Introduction

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.
