We visited on May 3rd with our tour group (China Spree). It was a very lively interesting market with many food stalls and people cooking, butchers cutting meat, and people just mingling. It was raining a little and it made more dramatic lighting for pictures....More

The Muslim quarter is only a short street near the ancient city walls which is mainly filled with vendors selling foods of many varieties. It was colourful and picturesque. I would not go far out of my way to see it, but since we came...More

This is the place to go to get a feel for the local flavor...in more ways than one. One whole street is dedicated to food, and there are more varieties than one can imagine. Another street is dedicated to souvenirs. Some bargains can be found,...More

Loved the energy and food displayed on this street. Lots of fresh lamb. The Chinese Hamburgers are a must try. We found it busy most of the day.

Muslim Quarter is just behind the Drum Tower and a must visit place while in Xi'an. It's a great place just to walk around and watch all that is happening. You can visit during daytime but it's best after dark. Highly recommended and unique area!...More

Here you will find the best prices for touristy items in China. Better prices than in Beijing or Shanghai

A vibrant spot, worth the visit if you want to experience big crowds, but tasty and interesting food. I would suggest not going inside the restaurants as the service is poor and they don't speak English.

It's a short walk, but so much to see. Make time to visit all the shops. I wished I was brave enough to try the many foods available, but common sense prevailed. In my opinion it is a must see experience.

It was the only Muslim Quarter we visited during 20 days in China. Very commercialized, but almost all Chinese tourist sites are. We happened to be there right when it was time for one of the five daily prayers, and got to see the men...More
