Xi'an City Wall (Chengqiang), Xi'an
(4.5/5 based on 4,600+ reviews on the web)
Built in the 14th century during the reign of the first Ming emperor, Xi'an City Wall (Chengqiang) has survived bombings, fires, and erosion and remained an important landmark. Surrounded by a deep moat, this section of the wall spans 13.7 km (8.5 mi). Constructed to optimize protection against invasion, the structure therefore includes a complicated system of gates and 98 ramparts. Today, visitors can walk, bike, or ride in a battery car across the gate. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Xi'an City Wall (Chengqiang) and many more Xi'an attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Xi'an vacation builder.
