I lived in a hostel by the city wall in Xi’an. It was a perfect location in the centre and I could reach subway in a few minutes. The staff of the hostel was really nice, when I arrived they invited me for a special dish for Xi’an which is cold rice noodles with a spicy sauce. I liked it very much.
For a foodie like me Xi’an is the place to be. In the centre there are several markets, the biggest is the muslim market. There are small booths selling various kinds of food like Chinese Hamburger, seafood, different types of skewers, fruits, freshly prepared passion fruit juice, various kinds of teas. You can smell this try that – it was like a wonderland for me.
And Xi’an has an ancient city wall, where you can walk on. But most of the city is rather modern. In Xi’an you find as well small shops and big shopping malls.
A bit outside of town is the site where the terracotta army was found. It is really an impressive museum and you can see that there is still a lot of work on-going.
