Trip to Bell Tower, Great Mosque and Big Goose PagodaApril 07, 2008. Today we had an easy day with only half day' city tour since people felt a little bit tired and also wanted to go shopping at the famous Islamic Market. We visited the central landmark of Xian - Bell Tower. Then proceeded to the Great Mosque. Lastly we drove to Big Goose Pagoda. The buffet lunch on the second floor of Xian Tangcheng Hotel was very nice with a rich choice of both western and Chinese food. The dinner - Hot-pot mutton at the century-old Donglaishun Restautant was a kind of experience to our guests from Romania.
