A Chinese man walks past an advertisement posted on the Muslim quarter of Xi'an. The place has been home for centuries of more than 30,000 Chinese Muslims belonging to the Hui ethnic minority, descendants of Persians, Arabs and Central Asians, who fled the Mongol invasions settled in this part of China at the time of the Ming Dynasty . Basically there are traders. The neighborhood streets that surround the first glance resemble Moroccan or Tunisian souks, although in this case something more sober. This is the perfect place to stock up on souvenirs at good prices. Here you will find shirts, bags, watches, bracelets, paintings, vases, terra-cotta warriors in all sizes and materials, and any other crafts you can imagine, with imitations of major brands.
