  • The area is a experience hard to find outside of the souks of morocco. Sights, sounds and smells are unique.  more »
  • It is amazing. You could find all the local food in this quarter. Worth a lot of tried. Tip is DO NOT EAT before you go to this quarter.  more »
  • A few years ago and may change. "Road trash bucket" "mutton skewers are more expensive" was the "Lamb skewers covered with food stalls". Several years ago, "road trash bucket" is, there I was walking may recycle, but very clean, local people have cleaned up. "Rise in lamb skewers", is stuck in the Red spit 10 Yuan / book! Great high-, this small shop located in lamb skewers 3 Yuan / book it was. Will be popular everywhere is "full of stalls of mutton skewers", Muslim stall was several years ago. You could see the skull of sheep at night.

  • Nice place to hang around after sunset. Many branches of the walkway leads to another enclave. Fantastic.
  • Street food paradise! One of the most lively and colorful districts of Xi'an. The Chinese Muslim influence is really visible.
  • Very crowded and touristy. Also a bit pricey. It is basically a big food market. No historic value.
  • An excellent place to be to experience the Muslim township in the middle of Xi'an. Great muslim food of all sorts and flavours. Prices are good, eating places are clean although at the street level, you may find things that are disorganised. There are over 160 million Muslim in China and Xi'an city has about 30% Muslim populations.
  • Great shops, wonderful food, and some very creative pickpockets.
