Hi :) I've been in Xi'an for around a month now and I'm really enjoying it. However, of an evening I'm looking for some fun activities to do other than going to Parkqin and the Belgium Bar. Nothing…Continue
I'm really liking Xi'an! We don't live there unfortunately because we're teaching in a town outside of Xi'an (1h by bus) in a high school. But we've been there over weekends a few times and we both really enjoy it, and eager to learn more about it and find our way around! So far the muslim quarter and things nearby our favorite hostel (Xiangximen youth hostel, near the south gate). What's your take on it? Any good places to advise?
Oh Right, hope your journey goes well! Yeah it seems to be a popular place for foreigners, it's on a pretty quiet street, good place to relax! I'm not sure what the place is like to be honest, just being sent to teach in some high school for a bit. Cool, I'll let you know when I'm back around then, hope you settle in alright!
Hey! How you finding Xi'an? I still dunno about good restaurants, there's some nice ones in Gaoxin where I live. As for bars, there's a big bar street slightly to the west inside the big South Gate (I can't remember the name) There's a few on the east side of the south gate too, on the road right next to the wall. "The Belgian" and some others there, friendly people. I'm away for a couple of weeks from monday, but maybe when I'm back I could show you if you still haven't found anywhere then!
Thanks for your request! Whereabouts in the UK are you from? So, I've been here about 10 days but it feels like ages! I already know a few things. Get in touch and I'll try give you some tips and show you a couple of places to go. I've met some cool people (also teachers) and am more than happy to show you around a bit! It's massive btw....like...huge!!! It's amazing though and there's plenty to do! Get in touch!
