How easy is it to get around in this area of Xian .. is it safe to walk, and is it easy to get a taxi?
Good morning, Yes to all your questions. This is an area that easily accessible and where you can find easy transportation around. I recommend that you ask your Concierge for Subway access and other means. Have a fun trip to this very lovable city. There is more to Xi'an than the "Terracotta". Enjoy
As I was on a tour the bus took us to this area. Once there we walked around at night, no problems. Safety was no problem. Any of the tourist areas were quiet safe all over China.
Walking the streets of Xian is far safer than walking the streets of Adelaide or Melbourne. Catching taxis is somewhat problematic. If it's a busy time there will be lots of competition.
The 3rd line of the underground railway has been completed recently and has a station near the pagoda. The train service is excellent.
It is save to walk. If u walk at night, its hard to reach the taxi, the taxi will refuse to take you. You can take their train to xian city.
Xi'an city itself is not very big. We had our transport at our disposal so the issue of transport wasn't a factor. I did see may taxis around. However if your journey is at night I suggest you get an arranged transport . Safety didn't seen to be an issue. However in a foreign place we have to take cognizance of it.
Hope that helps.
Enjoy your trip
