Enjoy the wall...... Aug 31, 2011
The wall goes around the entire city. Once you get out of the main gate areas, you get the wall mostly to yourself. I did this in August, so it was HOT. The south gate seems to be the best restored, so you might want to start there. If you have good walking shoes and up for a hike, walk the wall at least to one gate or try the 13.5km all the way around. Renting a bike (yep - really) is a good way to go if you don't want to spend the whole day. There is also a shuttle which has 17 stops and will take you all the way around for about $50rmb (or $5rmb per stop). There are drink and small food stations near the gates.

The views of the city will take you back. That is if you can see through the smog.

Relaxing Stroll "On and along" the perimeter of the ancient City Wall Dec 28, 2008
As most people might be aware, Xi'an is one of the 4 ancient cities in China. So what comes to mind, is the ancient city wall. It may not be comparable to the majestic Great Wall of China, but it's a city wall with its own beauty.

What is special is that Xi'an city is small enough that you can conquer the ancient wall by walking the whole perimeter and yes, the entire city view presented right in front of you. You definitely won't find that in Beijing.

The government has also made efforts in conservation - green parks are married side-by-side with the city wall.

Don't miss taking a time off your hectic travel schedule to stroll, over ever ride on the city wall. It's a good spot to catch sunset & sunrise too.

South Gate seems to be the most prominent gates. And my last note, do not underestimate this city wall stroll. It took me ~ 1.5hr to walk from East Gate to South Gate, including those shot breaks & my idllyic stroll of course.

Well, I would have gone on a morning cycle,if I had been given the chance again hah.
