Where to stay near Xi'an City Walls

Exploring Xi'an City Walls

Xi’an’s main landmark is pretty unmissable, encircling as it does the city for about eight miles. In addition, it is about 40 feet high—wider still—and you can walk or cycle it without coming down to street level. The Ming Dynasty wall is as strong as ever and includes watchtowers and a drawbridge, along with a park and moat around it. Bikes can be rented from up here. Two of the top hotel options within the wall are the five-star Grand Noble and Sofitel Xi’an on Renmin Square.

Sightseeing near Xi'an City Walls

- Terracotta Army

The main site in all of Shaanxi—the ‘Army of Terracotta Warriors and Horses’—is off to the northeast of town, not far from the Qinshihuang Mausoleum. These thousands of terracotta warriors and horses, spread across three gigantic chambers, were only uncovered in the 1970s and yet hail from the third century BC. There’s a museum on site with further information on the warriors and Emperor Qin Shi Huang. You can get in by bus or tour.

- Shaanxi History Museum

Located outside the wall is this fascinating museum, which has exhibits going as far back as the Neolithic period up to the period of the rich and most recent Qing dynasty. The Banpo Neolithic pottery and Shang dynasty bronzes are highlights, and there are some fascinating articles on the Tang dynasty. Get here early to receive free entry.

Transportation near Xi'an City Walls

Most sights are within the walls and the narrow roads are often best negotiated by bicycle, which can be rented cheaply—cycling the wall is a must. A metro line goes right under the middle of the city (north-south), while bus #610 is recommended for tourists, taking in the train station, Bell Tower and Shaanxi Historic Museum, among other attractions. Taxis are unregulated and best avoided.
