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.

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.

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.

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.

As a Chinese I understand that it's hard being a street vender in china but when they start swearing because your cant exept the bidding price (almost to the limit of wanting to hit me, a 160cm Asian girl) then I really get pissed off. So DON'T go there if your not looking for a bad attitude, swearing and aggressive behaviour with food that is fried in what it seems like second-hand oil and almost getting struck down by a moped. (Saying this with all my love to my motherland but this is one of the worse market I have seen in china!!!)
