This was a very senses stimulating atmosphere. We ate at one of the restaurants and did some shopping. I loved watching them make sweets by pulling this silver coloured elastic sugary confectionery in an elaborate display.

This very busy part of time is probably the nicest part of Xi'an to just wander around. Gives some flavour of what Xi'an must've been like when it was the starting point of the silk road.

Packed shoulder to shoulder with locals strolling, shopping and eating. Very few tourists are there because the crowds are so large it would be nearly impossible to keep a tour group together. We found very few independent travelers in Xi'an. One of the entrances is just behind the Drum Tower. You will know it by the tree lined street full... More

This location was amazing, the colours, the locals, the food, all a wonder to see. Walking down the street with food vendors surrounding you with delicious looking food. I ever actually had any because it was all covered in snow and I'm not sure my body would have thanked me for eating it.

This was an interesting part of the city, with markets and different street food on display, as well as the Mosque built in Chinese style. It was a current day reminder that Xi'an was the beginning of the Silk Road 2000 years ago.

I've hopscotched all over China for the last ten years and Xi'an holds many special memories. I rented an apartment steps from the Muslim Quarter so I was constantly going through it. It has many shops for you to bring home goodies and certainly provides an atmosphere to hone your bargaining muscles. The shop I liked the most was one... More

Walking down with so much going on, the special architecture and the Muslim people shouting out was pretty awesome. For us there were two parts: the covered area leading to the mosque is just a tourist trap selling overpriced fake goods you can get anywhere. The main uncovered road and alleys are the ones that are worth visiting with all... More

Due to the small size of our group our guide took us to areas that groups don't usually visit. The historical part of the tour was very interesting, some sights were confronting to western people.

The Muslim Quarter (also known as Muslim Street), is a collection of many streets, starting from the Beiyuanman Street located just north of the Drum Tower. This area is known as the Muslim Quarter because majority of the businesses are run by the ethnic Hui people. Since the establishment of the ancient Silk Road, many of the Islamic traders and...
