Xi'an City Wall is one of the best-kept defensive constructions in all of China. Discover its legendary secrets with this guided bike tour.
Xi'an City Wall Bike Tour
From the central Hotel Bell Tower, we'll walk down to the South Gate of the wall. This walk will only take 15 minutes, and once we arrive we'll climb on our bikes and for two hours you'll enjoy a fun, informative tour of this incredible structure.
Built during the Ming Dynasty in the 14th century, the Xi'an City Wall (also known as the Fortifications of Xi'an) is almost 9 miles long (14 km). On our bike tour, we'll stop at the different gates (East Gate, Changle; South Gate, Yongning; North Gate, Anyuan; and West Gate, Anding) to understand why this wall was built. Who were Xi'an's enemies? How was this wall built in just four years? We'll reveal this and much more during the tour!
The wall is on the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, with the name "City Walls of the Ming and Qing Dynasties", and as you cycle, our expert guide will explain more about these dynasties and you'll also discover interesting legends about the history of China, some are surprisingly based on true events.
At the end of the tour, you'll be able to explore the wall on foot at your own leisure.
