The desk is a voice sensing area. It is speculated that speaking on the desk can give opinions and suggestions to the scenic spot. On the left hand side (west) is the "Shaanxi Eight Monsters" screen (8 red screens show the unique customs of Shaanxi area, that is, a strange "bench does not sit up", two strange "half-side cover of the house", three strange "girls do not go outside", four strange "papa head wearing", five strange "noodles like pants belt", six strange "pot helmet like pot lid", Seven strange "oil spicy dishes", eight strange "Qin Qiang does not sing and roar".

After entering the square along the archway, it is a small square "Jingjian Square". The central center of the square is a bronze mirror, to commemorate Wei Zheng who is reckless with life and death and bluntly persuaded. In the "Old Tang Book • Wei Zheng Chuan", Tang Taizong's evaluation of Wei Zheng who just died "People mirror, you can gain and lose, Wei Zheng did not, The photo frame of the costume next to the bronze mirror is very popular and is a high-popular photo spot. The northernmost is the "Yongxingfang Building", which is the largest hotel in Yongxingfang, and it is also the main building. The wine altar hill and paper-cut clothing photo frame in front of the building are all high-value photo spots. The street where it is located is the first east-west street from south to north: ① the first street, the 1:1 ratio of donkeys, the angry imitation ancient wells, etc. are all photo spots that make people stop. The easternmost is a bowl of wine, you can buy a small bowl of wine you want to pray for, drink after you fall, you can ask for wealth, luck, peace, love, etc. After you fall, you can go to the wishing wall to make a wish.

    Shuncheng Alley

    9 Reviews
    962m from downtown
    "Shuncheng Lane is located in the south gate of Xi'an Ancient City. It is part of the cultural district of the academy gate. The streets are all quaint old-fashioned buildings. There are many shops selling cultural products, as well as bars and restaurants."
    Highlights: Shuncheng Alley in Xi'an, as the name suggests, is a section of street along the inner side of the city wall. One side is the majestic ancient city wall, and the other side is the beautiful and dignified ancient buildings of Ming and Qing Dynasties. Although the alley is not as wide as the new avenue. It is gorgeous, but because of its existence, the inside and outside of the besieged city, which were originally separated by walls, are integrated into the battlement and the eaves. The city walls are no longer alone, and the courtyards are no longer intermittent. In the alley of this bluestone path, there are different styles of youth hostels, restaurants, bars, coffee houses, and some Qin Opera or cross talk art clubs. After seeing enough of the big scenery, in the gap between the high-rise buildings in the city, along the roots of the city wall, and deep into the small veins of the city, you may be able to understand the city of Xi'an better.
