What to Expect
After pick-up from your hotel in the morning, your guide will accompany you to the ancient city wall - a major landmark of Xi’an. Next, visit the Bell Tower, a wooden tower which is the largest and best-preserved of its kind in China. Admire the grey bricks on the square base, the dark-green glazed tiles on the eaves, gold-plating on the roof and gilded paint. These all make the tower a colorful and dramatic masterpiece of Ming architecture.
Continue to the Great Mosque and explore the Muslim Quarter. All of the shops and restaurants here are operated by Muslims. Food and souvenir stalls line the narrow alleys. The guide will recommend local restaurants according to your preference, which serve cuisine including noodles and dumplings.
Later, visit the Giant Wild Goose Pagoda, which is one of the most famous Buddhist pagodas in China, built to store precious Buddhist scriptures. The temple at its foot is also worth exploring. You will be guided around the gardens and the biggest square. Finally, you will be dropped back at your hotel.
