“Very busy, exciting street”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 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.

“Amazing , not to be missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

Amazing colourful Muslim Street is actually several street where you can wander for two or three hours soaking up the atmosphere. So many delicious foods on sale it is hard to choose. Sweet, savoury all looking tasty. The Mosque is worth a visit, a calming oasis in a busy busy area.
So many great photo opportunities!!!!!
Behind the Drum Tower is the start.

“Fascinating... but exhausting.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
