Bell tower & Drum Tower Square:
The Bell Tower, a remarkable symbol of Xian, is located in the center of city where the four main streets intersect. The Bell Tower is the largest and also the best preserved one among the existing bell towers in China.
At that time, the Bell Tower was located a block west of its current position where was opposite to the Drum Tower. To the northwest of the Bell Tower is the Drum tower, another symbol of ancient Xian, which stands on the diagonal of the Bell Tower and Drum Tower Square. A huge drum was housed in the tower and struck every evening. The enormous drum was used to mark time, and in times of war, to warn citizens of impending attack. Both the Bell and Drum Tower are illuminated at night, and the Drum Tower offers attractive evening views over the plaza below and on to the Bell Tower. The tunnel through the center of the tower’s base leads to the Muslim quarter.

Dumpling Banquet:
Dumplings, or Jiao Zi as they are known in Chinese, are among the most representative foods in China. Perhaps the most famous dumplings served are in Xi'an of northwest China's Shaanxi Province. The Xi'an Dumpling Banquet is well known for its rich assortment of dumplings with different tastes and styles.
Usually dumplings for the Xi'an Dumpling Banquet need to go through six procedures before they can be served. The filling consists of various meats, chopped vegetables and seasonings, resulting in the flavors such as salty, sweet, hot and sour. And there's almost as much variety in the cooking methods used. They can be steamed, boiled, pan-fried or roasted.
People who taste Xi'an Dumpling Banquet have had a deep happy memory. This is not only because its beautiful styles and delicious taste, but also because it includes plentiful cultural intension.
