At The Longest Day in Chang'an – the first immersive street live entertainment and commercial shopping complex in the country featuring the Tang Dynasty (618-907) – the expat students said they felt the fresh vitality in the streets and alleys of ancient Chang'an city.

"This is what I imagine the prosperous Tang Dynasty looked like," said Mihailo Micanovic, an international student at Xi'an University of Technology.
