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

The "Shuyuan Gate" commonly referred to by local people in Xi'an refers to Shuyuanmen pedestrian street. Shuyuanmen Pedestrian Street is located on the east side of the South Gate of the ancient city (Yongning Gate), adjacent to South Street to the west, and near the Forest of Stone Steles Museum to the east. The highest academic institution in Shaanxi during the Ming and Qing dynasties, the Guanzhong Academy, was located on this street. Along the antique streets, there are calligraphy and painting shops and small shops selling the four treasures of study everywhere.

When you turn from South Street to this street, you will suddenly feel a quietness. On both sides of the street are green and antique buildings, with green stone slabs paving the road below, and tall locust trees everywhere. On a street only over 500 meters away, there are hundreds of shops selling "souvenirs" that are sold in major tourist attractions across the country.

Compared with other commercial pedestrian streets in China, there are particularly many shops selling calligraphy and painting here. There are not only many works of folk calligraphy and painting enthusiasts, but also many famous works (but there are also many counterfeits). There are also many stalls set up on the street, which are actually desks where the owners write, draw, and sell works, including some experts. For them, while selling, they may also enjoy the process of exchanging skills with their peers.

Brushes, ink, paper, and inkstones are essential for drawing with a brush. Here is a small shop specializing in the four treasures of study, where you can purchase high-quality rice paper, refined ink inkstones, and more. There are also many small shops of folk crafts on the street, complete with tablet rubbings, ancient musical instruments "Xun", Paper Cuttings and shadow puppets with local characteristics.
