Arrival in Xi'an

When you arrive in Xi’an you’ll be transferred to your comfortable central hotel. The city is a big business hub and the accommodation reflects this but it’s central location makes up for it’s lack of small scale charm. The rest of the day is yours for the taking. Wander around the Muslim district, thick with the scented smoke of barbecued meats and spices or browse through one of the huge mega-malls.

Xi’an – Evening Gourmet Walking Tour

During your stay in Xi’an you’re not going to want to miss out on exploring the Muslim Quarter. The area comes alive at night with food stalls, various street acts and music and what could be better than to be guided through the narrow alleyways tasting all sorts of local delights and cuisine as you go. You’re exploring on foot so be sure to wear some comfy shoes.

"I was lucky enough to travel across China for two months and the more I explored, the more I loved; from its ancient towns to its futuristic cities. My top highlight has to be the mountainous scenery of Yunnan."
