Full description
Take in incredible views of the city of X’ian from its magnificent Bell Tower and Drum Tower, and learn all about its intriguing history from your local guide. Depending on the option you choose, you will either meet the guide yourself at the Bell Tower Hotel or get transferred from your hotel to the meeting point by a premium car. Head to the Bell Tower along with your guide and marvel at the ancient wonder located right at the heart of the bustling city of Xi’an. This 14th-century wooden monument from the Ming dynasty, standing at the height of 36 meters, was used to tell time during ancient times. Enter the tower and walk up the wooden stairs to the top of the building as you listen to your guide share fascinating stories about its legendary past. Behold the panoramic views of the city from the top and take time to let that sink in. Continue towards the Drum Tower, a smaller building at 7.7 meters in height that marks the entrance towards the city’s Muslim Quarter. Learn about the historical role of this tower from your guide before making your way into the Muslim Quarter. Walk past an unending line of vibrant food stalls selling cakes, dried fruits, bread, and barbequed meat before you arrive at your final stop — Jia San Soup Dumpling Restaurant — a must-try restaurant in the Muslim Quarter. After a delicious meal at the restaurant, in case you’re left wanting more, feel free to get recommendations from your guide for the best street food you could try.
