Discover an interesting side of China on a walking tour through Xi’an’s Muslim Quarter. After you meet your local guide at the Drum Tower, walk to the Muslim Quarter and wander around the busy market area, filled with street vendors selling delicious regional snacks. Try the cold noodles with sweet and tangy sauce, steamed lamb soup dumplings, persimmon pancakes or eight-treasure rose cakes. Browse the souvenir stalls and pick up Islamic-inspired gifts.
 
Then visit  the Great Mosque, one of the oldest and most renowned mosques in China, founded in 742 AD. Unlike most mosques in Middle Eastern countries, the Great Mosque of Xi’an is completely Chinese in its architectural style, except for some Arabic lettering. Learn about the origin of the Hui people and hear the tales of how Islam came to China centuries ago. Wander around the mosque,enjoying the tranquil atmosphere and beautiful scenery. Then visit a smaller mosque to gain further insight into local worship of the Chinese Muslims.
  
Continue your walk through the quarter, and pass bakeries and shops to reach a local restaurant where you’ll feast on a banquet-style Halal dinner or barbeque. Try the yangroupaomo (a crumbled fried pancake soaked in lamb stew), beef kabobs and hand-pulled noodles with spiced lamb. The tour concludes after dinner, and you will then be free to explore Xi’an’s lively night market. If you need suggestions of where to go, your guide will share tips of the best places to shop, eat and people-watch!
