This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Yongxingfang, Xinjie St, Zhong Lou Shang Quan, Xincheng Qu, Xian Shi, Shaanxi Sheng, China

Take in all of the culinary highlights of Xi’an in this fun-filled evening foodie tour. Meet at the light-filled, lantern-dotted Yongxingfang Food Street and experience the sights and sounds of this pulsating market. Packed to the rafters with authentic gastronomic fare, visitors will also take in rich and intriguing artefacts such as old farm ploughs, wonderfully vivid bunches of dried chillies and huge mask paintings.

Once the eyes are satisfied, attend an unforgettable Shuaiwanjiu experience. This unusual ceremony (the name of which literally translates to “smashing bowls”) is thought to bring safety to the participant and involves drinking a bowl of rice wine and then enthusiastically throwing said bowl at a target on the wall.

Continue the foodie fun by sampling a variety of traditional dishes; from mushroom skewers, tofu, and sticky rice pies to Rou Jia Mo (a Chinese version of the burger) and cold skin noodles, there’s a huge array of local eats to choose from! Stroll through the bustling marketplace and gaze in through warmly lit windows to witnesses the energetic chefs preparing each dish with unrelenting passion. Stop off at a sesame oil workshop, witness vinegar fermenting, see tofu being made and so much more besides. And, once the appetite has been suitably worked up, enjoy dinner at one of the finest restaurants in the market.

Walk off the delicious meal by taking a short stroll to witness Square Dancing, a fascinating performative exercise performed by the region’s retired women before heading back to the hotel for some much deserved rest.
