An extensive network of ancient trade routes, the Silk Road has long stirred the imagination with tales of camel caravans and swashbuckling adventurers. It was during the Han Dynasty that China began to trade silk outside its own borders, with its materials eventually reaching as far as Rome. The empires along the route, including India, Persia and Arabia exchanged more than just goods – religions, philosophy and technologies found their way across the continent and forged political and economic relationships that became a significant factor in the development of all these civilisations.
Travelling along the original route you are following in the footsteps of Marco Polo and Genghis Khan, travelling through extraordinary landscapes and through the legendary towns and cities that once thrived and are now full of rich history – Kashgar and Samarkand to name just a few. The Silk Road was for century after century the world’s most historically important overland trade route – today it seamlessly brings together modern-paced adventure with ancient culture.
The Silk Road offers a wealth of wonderful sights and experiences. What better way to explore them than on a Wendy Wu tour?
