Our last day in Xi’an we took a walk on the city wall. he first landmark visitors will encounter in Xi’an is the ancient city wall, which stretches round the old city. It is approximately 6 miles. The northern side runs parallel to the railway. Xi’an was originally a walled city, and even today the wall is considered a landmark dividing the city into the inner part and the outer part. The city wall is massive – tall, long and thick. The South Gate and North Gate are the two main entrances to the inner city. The city itself is neatly arranged along the city wall.
Lance and I wanted to ride a bike around it but by the time we got up to the top of the wall it was so hot. We decided to take a walk on it and we never did see where you rent the bikes. But it was a interesting walk and give you an idea of how large the city is.
