For dinner we eat at a famous dumpling banquet. We sample over 16 different kinds of dumplings, some shaped like their contents.
After dinner we walk to the Bell Tower, which marks the geographical center of Xi’an. From this important landmark extend streets connecting the tower to the north, south, east and west gates of the City Wall we biked earlier in the day.
We end our evening with a stroll through the Muslim Quarter. When night falls, the Muslim Quarter is one of the busiest places in Xi’an. It’s a fascinating area where you can find interesting people, exotic food, and great souvenirs. Historically, the Muslim Quarter marks the starting point of the famous Silk Road. During the 8th century AD, Xi’an was the largest city in the world.
