  • not sure what is the nickname for Xian, but surely the lighting at the drum tower really stunning. stop by the coffee shop and enjoy the view. 
  • We had to go and visit this place on our way to the Muslim square. Very easy to get there! It is such an amazing and huge place in the middle of the town .
