Xi’an city moat – 2

May 26, 2013

Probably not canoeable

A few weeks ago (click here) I speculated about canoeing or swimming this. Xi’an is the largest completely walled city in China and for a few pounds it is possible to walk around the top.  The moat outside the wall looks inviting, and I saw one boat. But my courage failed me.

Signs forbid access, parts are presently dry and it seems to be blind ended where it passes under major roads. Oh well.

But still worth a wild swim for braver souls than me.
