Culture and entertainment

Xi'an is an El Dorado for historically interested people, and doesn't have much entertainment apart from the historical sights, of which there are plenty in the city. The liveliest area is around the Great Mosque, but at night the entire city is crawling with people.

Taxi

There are plenty of taxis in the streets of Xi'an and all you have to do to get one, is stretch your arm. Drivers who speak English, however, are few, so remember to write down your destination in Chinese.

The city bus system is good, but difficult to find your way around in, as all the signs are written in Chinese.
