It is the center of the considerable Chinese-Muslim community in Xi’an. The stalls flanking the narrow alleys sell almost everything you can imagine. There are even a number of stalls selling parts of aircraft. If you prepared to bargain you will be amazed at the final prices. A variety of Muslim food and snacks can be tried here, tasty and very cheap, including the locals’ favorites, roasted beef, roasted fish, and pancakes. The title of “a street of gourmet” is deserved.
P.S. Consider trying “Yang Rou Pao Mo 羊肉泡馍”, a well-known local dish which is essentially crumble pita bits in mutton noodle soup.
 
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. There are daily drum beatings at 9, 10 and 11am and 2, 4 and 6pm.

Folk Shadow Show:
Have you ever watched “Once Upon A Time In America” acted by Robert De Niro or the movie “The Karate Kid” by Jackie Chen. If you do, then you must know or maybe have an impressive image of Folk Shadow Show.
The shadow show or leather silhouette play is a type of drama which has its roots in China.
Legend has it that Emperor Wudi (156-87 B.C.) of the Western Han was depressed with the death of his favorite concubine Lady Li. To help him get over the sadness, an occultist sculptured a wooden figure in the likeness of the lady and projected its shadow on a curtain for the emperor to see, bring him consolation with the belief that the shadow was her spirit. This has been thought to be the beginning of the shadow.
Today’s shadow puppets are made of leather instead of wood for the simple reason that much lighter, easier to manipulate and carry round. The process for making the puppets is as follows: Sheep or donkey skin with hair removed is cleaned and treated chemically to become thin enough to be translucent. Coated with tung oil and dried, it is carved into various parts of dramatic figured.
