A week in Xi’an (4) Traffic!

Traffic!
The number of cars in Xi’an has increased enormously over the last few years. Crossing the road at ground level is a challenging experience, although 4 year olds stand calmly as cars drive within inches of them.

However, the bicycle is still a popular mode of transport.

  1. Nice that you got to spend a week there. Most only get a day or so and don’t get to see the parks and inner city like you did.

    Yes we certainly saw a lot more by walking around than the tourist s who are bussed in would do. Once we had got used to the dust in the air!
