Jostle your way through the crowd while enjoying the pungent aromas at Muslim market, a street packed with shops and food stalls. Paved with dark blue-grey flagstone, the 500 m (1,640 ft) long street offers local must-try specialties such as roujiamo (spicy marinated beef) and yangrou paomo (Uyghur pita bread soaked in thick lamb soup). Extending north from a landmark tower, the street marks the gastronomical hub for the area, its market serving the 20,000-plus Muslim community here. Watch craftsmen make ornamented bread or candy, which you can take as a souvenir.

Where to stay in Xi'an

As in most Chinese cities, the least expensive places to stay in Xi'an concentrate around the main train station. To stay in a quieter and safer area, look for rooms in or near the city center, where you can choose between mid-range hotels and affordable youth hostels catering to backpackers and other travelers on a budget. Tourists with bargaining experience can usually get deeply discounted rooms through agents working the shuttle bus station at the airport. If you'd rather avoid dealing with touts, book your accommodations ahead.
