Arrival in Xi'an

Category: Martin @ 09:15

Today I flew right in the middle of China to the ancient capital city of Xi'an (formerly Chang'an). Xi'an is a bustling city with several millions of inhabitants and lots of construction going on in the outskirts. Inside the surrounding city walls the city kept its unique flair of mixing ancient with modern buildings. Depicted above is the Bell Tower in the very center of Xi'an.

View from the bell tower towards the south gate.

Xian contains a big muslim quarter. Although it doesn't look anything like it, but this here is inside the big mosque of Xi'an.
