I was born and raised in Xi'an Shaanxi and have been blessed to travel all around the world. I am fascinated in tasty food and have been to Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Lisbon, Munich, London, Naples, Seoul, Chiang Mai, etc. only for satisfying my taste buds.
During the process, I gradually understood the culture and eating habit differences between each country, which is amazing and awesome.
I love Xi'an and so delicious local food, and would like to introduce that to you by experience.
I feel blessed to wake up in my dream city every single day and to share its eternal beauty with people from around the world.

Do yourself a favor and book this experience! From start to end, Xiao was a top-notch guide. For a tourist, there is something magical about going beyond the typical tourist sites and experiencing a city like a local, and this tour did exactly that for me. Xiao not only showed me the best of Xi’an food and beverage, but also tailored the experience to my desires and ensured that every single spot on the tour was perfect for me. She showed me spots that a tourist would never know to visit—from an amazing morning market to her favorite cafe. She also went out of her way to make a personal connection with me, and I had a fantastic time getting to know her throughout our time together. From the beginning, she was great at communication— going so far as to message me a few days before the tour to check if I had any allergies to food. At the end of the experience, she even gave me ideas for the rest of my time visiting the city and provided directions to make the rest of my stay in Xi’an convenient. If you want to enjoy local Xi’an food culture, this is the experience for you! I will be certain to contact Xiao next time I visit Xi’an!
