About this activity
Meet at the Bell Tower Hotel at 5.pm for this 3-hour tour of Xi'an's Muslim Quarter, and get ready to be immersed in the food culture and history of the area. 

Follow your guide as you work your way through street stalls that are cooking up some of the best street food in the city. Learn about — and get to snack on — specialties from five stalls that locals love. The stalls you end up at are normally hard to find, tucked away in the backstreets of the Muslim Quarter, so you know you’ll be getting a truly local experience with every bite.

Amidst all the snacking, go back in time with a stop at Gao’s Grand Courtyard, which in the evening is decorated with traditional red Chinese lanterns. The 400-year-old mansion is a good example of architecture from both the Ming and Qing Dynasties and provides a good overview of the history of the time. 

Once you've have your fill, it’s time for a drink (or two) near the city walls along Defuxiang bar street, which as the name suggests, is lined with bars. While not long, the street offers a peek into the local nightlife of Xi’an and you can feel free to either stay out, or make your way back to your hotel. This tour ends at about 8 p.m.
