The Silk Road was an extensive network of ancient trade routes stretching from China to Mediterranean that have long stirred the imagination with tales of camel caravans and swashbuckling adventurers. The cities and empires along the route, including India, Persia and Arabia became fabulously wealthy and have left us with a rich cultural heritage to explore on a Silk Road tour.

Silk Road holidays today follow 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. Silk Road icons like Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva boast grand extraordinarily beautiful architecture but you may be just as beguiled by the bustling bazaars or lonely caravanserai and remote hilltop forts that dot the region.

A more recent history of Soviet occupation and recent oil wealth have also added to an already beguiling mix and it’s fair to say there is nowhere on earth like it.

The landscapes are starkly beautiful, ranging from vast rolling dune deserts to pristine mountain lakes, and provide a suitably romantic backdrop for your Silk Road adventure.
