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 can be a tourist trap if no prior research was done to visiting. South gate is the most scenic by far, with obvious view of the Bell tower. Recommended to head over at 5pm as ticket is only a one time entry, place transform at night with the lights on which gives the whole area a different look
