Hungry? We hope so. Immerse yourself in the culture, history and, most importantly, the food of Xi’an on this tour that puts diving into local street snacks front and centre. But not just any street snacks. You’ll be getting a firsthand look (and taste) of what locals love, and the stalls you’ll be stopping at aren’t likely be found in the pages of your guidebook. What you encounter as you wind your way through the colourful back alleys of Xi’an’s food-filled Muslim Quarter will be a tasty, unique, and fun trip through foodie heaven.
You’ll work your way to (and through) the tangle of stalls cooking up some of the best street food in the city. In the process, you’ll learn about, and get to snack on, specialities 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 Gau’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. The serene courtyard is somewhat hard to spot, but it’s well worth exploring and a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the busy Muslim Quarter.
Once you 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 after a busy day of exploring and eating.
