Lots of knick knacks and lots to bargain for. Yes, bargain and don't buy from the first place you see sine they will sell the same thing at the next row. Get an idea of how much things cost then buy! There was a lady doing calligraphy with pictures and scriptures. We loved her work and got several pieces of... More

I really enjoyed this area. The lamb stew is amazing. The pagoda is cool at night.bi walked through fine with no guide. One day I did have a guide. Just myself and him. He knew the good places for food which I think is a good idea as there are many. But you could be fine just playing it by... More

Its a MUST to see in Xian. The food is extremely good. It is jammed pack with locals- not many tourists- fun entertaining to eat and people watch.

Loved it here. Spent around 3 hours wandering around. A lot of the food stalls are the same but it has a real atmosphere. We went in the afternoon which was much quieter than the evening.

Amazing place! Bustling with people, sights, sounds and smells. I've no idea what some of the food items are, especially the deepfried ones on sticks. Huge bubbling pots with hoofs and toes emerging from the steam, carcases hanging from trees with young boys skilfully boning them for kebabs, men pounding cakes with big wooden mallets, spices, steamers - you name...

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.
