1. Xi'an Muslim Quarter Night Market Foodie Walking Tour
The Muslim Quarter’s narrow lanes are full of butcher shops, sesame oil factories, smaller mosques hidden behind enormous wooden doors, men in white skullcaps and women with their heads covered in colored scarves. Steeped in history, the neighborhood has housed a largely Muslim population since the 7th century. Many of the dishes served have changed little since that time. Follow our private tour will offer incredible smells and tastes. Chefs stir-fry lamb and spices in hot woks set over blazing hot coal ovens. Nearby, hawkers roast walnuts or sell prunes of varying prices and degrees of quality. Stacks of bamboo baskets filled with mutton and beef dumplings steam away next to fresh fruit vendors and old ladies stir-frying potatoes. In addition to tasting the exquisite local cuisine, you can also have two options to visit to Great Mosque or Gaojia Courtyard. Great Mosque is the largest and best-preserved of the early mosques of China, which was built primarily in the Ming Dynasty when Chinese architectural elements were synthesized into mosque architecture. Gaojia Courtyard also is a well-preserved Ming and Qing architecture.(Entrance fee is on your own) After walking through the main street, your tour guide will lead you to the small lane in the quarter to the Sajinqiao area, where the real delicacies are.
