Xi'an Afternoon City Wall Tour Including Chinese Paper Cutting Class

2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your downtown hotel, and travel by public transport (own expense) to the South Gate of the City Wall.

    On route, hear about the wall’s history and construction. Built in around 1370 and measuring 8.5 miles (14 kilometers) long and 40 feet (12 meters) high, this massive structure is the oldest, biggest, and best preserved city wall in China.

    Enter the beautiful South Gate and ascend to the top. Here, absorb the far-reaching city views, and opt to walk or ride a rental bike (additional cost) along the walkway.

    Next, head into old Xian’s Muslim Quarter, home to the Hui peoples, whose Persian ancestors came here in ancient times. Stroll by the food stalls of Muslim Street, and visit the Gao Grand Courtyard, an ornate 400-year-old residential house converted into an arts and cultural venue.

    Admire the carved building and enjoy a paper cutting class, learning the ancient Chinese folk art of ‘jianzhi:’ the tradition of cutting intricate paper designs for decoration and good fortune.

    Your tour ends near Xian’s City Wall, with your guide happily offering tips on further sightseeing or restaurants for dinner (own expense), as well as directions back to your hotel.
