The Muslim Quarter is a "must visit". It is an area of narrow streets, markets and shops to the north and north-west of the Drum Tower.
Reasons to go there
All shops and restaurants in the street are operated by Muslims. The buildings are old and in original chinese architecture.
It is definitely worth an entire morning or afternoon.
The restaurants in the streets offer a variety of Muslim food and snacks, including the locals' favorite ones, roasted beef, roasted fish, and pancakes.
I would suggest to go there in the afternoon, so that you can choose some street vendor or nice muslim restaurant for dinner after spending your energies walking.
Shoppers, looking for traditional Xian art, will find folk paper-cuts in the Muslim Quarter.
If you are good at bargaining, you can get some things at a really cheap price.
I recommend to compare hotel prices very well in Xian. Different booking sites have totally different prices for the same hotel. Maybe this site helps you. It compares more than 30 bookings sites at once. I hope this tip helps you for your trip.
How to get there
Go to the Drum Tower to enter the Muslim Street.
The Muslim Street (a.k.a. Islamic Quarter) has a long history. It is said that in olden days, foreign diplomatic envoys and merchants lived here then they married and had children, so gradually the population increased. Today, most of the inhabitants of Muslim Quarter are the descendants of those immigrants.
