Xi’an City Moat

December 10, 2012

I’m visiting Xi’an, the ancient capital of China, in May 2013, and I guess I’ll be taken to the Terracotta Warriors. But I’m more interested in the world’s largest walled city. You can cycle or walk the 8.5 mile circuit along the top, or run three laps for the Xi’an marathon (click here).

A moat runs alongside the wall – I wonder if I dare try to canoe it.

Or perhaps a wild swim?
