A wonderful place to visit. Go there after sunset and enjoy the beautiful architecture covered in colorful lights. The street is full with hundreds of vendors selling local street food and artistic products. The food is genuinely tasty. Everything is so colorful and lively. A must visit spot on Xi'an.
We then continued to the Muslim quarter, starting at the market, one of my favourite parts because it offers a wide range of colourful street food, for all budgets and tastes. We got a bit “lost” and perplexed …of all the movement around here, so many people walking by, vendors offering their products, what a vibrant and full-of-life street. !. We also learned about the history of how the Muslims arrived here and Silk Road route and merchants, a walk past in time..We then arrived at the Great Mosque.
