Meet a Local Host®

My name is Ivy. I graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor Degree at Northwest University and majored in English literature. I have been working as a English tour guide since 2005. I like this job because I like traveling and meeting people from different cultures and countries. They make me feel like the world comes to me. This job needs a positive and serious attitude, strong sense of responsibility and willingness. I feel proud that I can introduce my city to visitors from all over the world. In my spare time, I like swimming, listening to music and tasting different food as it is like tasting different cultures.

Located close to Confucius Temple in old Xi’an, this market focuses on the “Four Treasures of Study” which consist of the brush, ink, paper, and ink stone. Here you will find a variety of arts and crafts ranging from paintings to calligraphy. This is a great place to pick up a few souvenirs from your journey.
