"Walk on top of the City Wall" City Wall Tip by nattybabe

City Wall, Xi'an: 64 reviews and 157 photos


Xi-an is one of the few Chinese cities were ancient city walls are still visible. The original Tang dynasty walls are long gone, however a rectangular circumference of 14kms of Ming walls surround the city.

Bikes can be hired at the South Gate and you can access the wall from the South Gate (Nanmen) for around Y30.

Walking the entire city wall takes around 2 hours but you get to see a side of Xi'an that's not visable from the ground so give it a go!!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
