Travelling Tips

Encircling the city center of Xi’An, the City Wall has totally 18 city gates, but they are not all open to tourists. Although you may walk for a whole circle on the wall, you can only ascend the City Wall from the South Gate, Small South Gate, East Gate, West Gate, North Gate, Heping Gate, Wenchang Gate and Hanguang Gate. You may choose one according to your hotel's location.

The best way to travel on the City Wall is probably to rent a bicycle at the South Gate, the most popular gate for tourists. Cycling on the Wall will sure be an enjoyable and interesting experience.
