“Very busy, exciting street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

A very busy but exciting street. Food stalls everywhere. Trinkets and small items for sale. Well worth the visit. Trying to find somewhere to sit down can be challenging. I would do this again.

“Fascinating... but exhausting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

There's all kinds of local food to try, there are a lot of souvenirs to buy. It's a little overwhelming because there are a lot of people shouting, little mopeds honking and even cars trying to get through. Nonetheless a trip well worth it, a must when visiting Xi'an. But you will need some rest afterwards.

“Nothing great.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Wondered around, found a few gifts & souvenirs, did not want to try the food as we are vegetarians, you have to be careful when you go shopping as unless you know the art of bargaining, one can get cheated. The same item will have different prices in different shops. Some shopkeepers are very good, but some can turn out to be real nasty. As tourists it was a new experience.

“Great Place to eat and go shopping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

This street is in the Muslim Quarter which has street vendors who sell food and souvenirs. The food is local Chinese with a several Middle Eastern and Muslim restaurants. At night the place comes alive as locals and tourists wander through the streets meeting friends, having dinner or buying gifts. The smells are intoxicating and the flavor of the food is spectacular.

“Fascinating local culture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Visit the Muslim Street in Xian. A place to overdose the senses if not particularly shop. Again a great place to capture some pictures of the 'locals' at work and play.
