What people are saying:

Beautiful place to take a wake or ride a bike. I would have done the whole round of 13,74km if I hadn’t had my kids with me. Great place to see the old town and enjoy a walk.

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.

Helpful Information

There are bicycle rental services at each of the 4 gates; North, South, East and West, for you to rent and to return. The best way to tour this ancient city is by bicycle as it is even allowed on top of the circumvallation. After that you can always hop into the sightseeing electric cars to loop through the rest of the city of which the entire journey will take about 50 minutes.
