We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Xian Shuyuan Gate

Xian Shuyuan Gate

If you have a visit to Xi’an, Shuyuan Gate is a must-see highlight. Here you will taste the most truthful Xi’an life and perceive the refulgence view of a parting regnal back.

Shuyuan, the Chinese mean is Academy of Classical Learning. Located on the eastern side of South Gate, Shuyuan Gate is a cultural street factually restored in the style of the ancient architectures of Ming and Qing Dynasties with a length of 570 meters (623 yards) and a width of 10 meters (11 yards). Guangzhong Shuyuan, one of the leading academies in ancient China and the highest institution of Shaanxi Province in Ming and Qing Dynast, was established here, so Shuyuan Gate won its name now.

Xian Shuyuan GateEntering the torii of the Shuyuan Gate on the east side of road, a green flagstone street extends and you will see a 2-story stores in ancient style along both sides and smell the aroma of Chinese ink. As far as the stalls are concerned, Xun is a especial merchandise must to be refered. Xun is an original musical instrument in the ancient China. It was excavated in the Banpo Site 6,000 years ago. Rambling down the Shuyuan Gate, you may hear the sounds of the Xun and the bamboo flute played by storekeepers now and again to drum up trade, which is not quite a melody but more the symbol of Xi’an.

These stores mostly deal in the four treasures of study, curios, jade, gold and sliver ornaments, calligraphies and paintings of celebrities, copybooks and handcrafted keepsakes. There are authentic works by some famed artists, such as Liuwenxi, the artist who drew the images in the RMB 100 note.

Shadow play figures, paper-cuts and face painting are typical folk handcrafts of Xi’an that are appealing to tourists. Shadow play figures are made of animal skin, used for shadow play shows in ancient. The technique of making it is so difficult that fewer and fewer are for sales.
