Xi'an Muslim Quarter Night Market Foodie Walking Tour

10. Xi'an Muslim Quarter Night Market Foodie Walking Tour

The Muslim Quarter’s narrow lanes are full of butcher shops, sesame oil factories, smaller mosques hidden behind enormous wooden doors, men in white skullcaps and women with their heads covered in colored scarves. Steeped in history, the neighborhood has housed a largely Muslim population since the 7th century. Many of the dishes served have changed little since that time. Follow our private tour will offer incredible smells and tastes. Chefs stir-fry lamb and spices in hot woks set over blazing hot coal ovens. Nearby, hawkers roast walnuts or sell prunes of varying prices and degrees of quality. Stacks of bamboo baskets filled with mutton and beef dumplings steam away next to fresh fruit vendors and old ladies stir-frying potatoes. In addition to tasting the exquisite local cuisine, you can also have two options to visit to Great Mosque or Gaojia Courtyard. Great Mosque is the largest and best-preserved of the early mosques of China, which was built primarily in the Ming Dynasty when Chinese architectural elements were synthesized into mosque architecture. Gaojia Courtyard also is a well-preserved Ming and Qing architecture.(Entrance fee is on your own) After walking through the main street, your tour guide will lead you to the small lane in the quarter to the Sajinqiao area, where the real delicacies are.

What a perfect day! I was nicely picked up at my Hotel by Rosa and the driver. First stop was the terracotta army. On the way Rosa told me many interesting things about the history of China and the various capitals and dynasties. Then back to Xi‘an for super nice streefood and the mosque. I also vould take pictures of the drum and bell towers. I spontaneously took a footbath in a fishbassin where the fish nibbled at my feet. After that a funny bicycle ride on the city wall. Then a tasty dinner with a huge variety of dumplings and a nice dance show. Rosa was very well organised and would explain all the nice background information. The driver was always on time and brought us safely everywhere we went. What a perfect day!

Tourguide Eddie took really, really good care of us - he was prompt, made sure we get the best out of our day, was very informative and attentive. Tour was superb and very personal! Driver was safe driver and always there. We did the Terracotta Army, the wild goose pagoda and Muslim street with very good food! Thank you!!!
