The Muslim Quarter in Xian

It’s such a fascinating city that not only holds the very birthplace of the Chinese civilization and having a continuous history of over 3000 years, it also holds a long-running co-existence of Hui Muslim culture and Han Chinese culture. It was the first city in China to be introduced to Islam in 651.

 

   

 

The Muslim Quarter is perhaps one of my favorite places in the city, vibrant and full of life. Traders line the streets with the stalls hawking super fresh and high-quality fruits and vegetables.

 

 

And do not miss the food here!
