Cycle the Ancient City Wall

Ride round the amazing wall fr £99pp

On this fun tour, you not only walk around Xian's ancient City Walls, you can ride a bike around them too. These huge city walls are one of the best preserved in all of China. This huge impregnable structure, which has experienced 600 years of history, is an amazing sight. And after walking around them you have a chance to enjoy a gentle cycle around the wall for around 90 minutes, one of the must do things in the city.

When the first emperor of the Ming Dynasty captured the city, a hermit told him that he should build high walls, store abundant food supplies so that he could fortify the city and unify the other states. So he took this advice to heart and built the Xian City Wall which survives as one of the largest ancient military defensive systems in the world. To walk, or cycle, around the entire wall today is a trip of eight and a half miles.

Admit it, this is what you have travelled so far to see.

Sightseeing here, which includes an excellent museum, involves approximately two and a half hours of walking and after lunch you are taken back to your city hotel.
