China’s Silk Road Highlights
The Silk Road is one of China’s most romantic and exotic journeys conjuring up the trading camel caravans that plied the perilous route from Europe to Asia for so many centuries. Mountains, deserts, oases, forts and a cosmopolitan mix of ancient cultures is what the Silk Route is all about.
In the present day although the caravans have gone and been replaced by rail and lorries plenty of remnants of the old route are still visible adding to the fascinating history of the region.
The Chinese Silk Road Makes for a Fantastic Adventure
Aside from Xian – the start or finish of the Silk Road – the other stops such as Dunhuang and Turpan are still very much off the beaten track offering an adventure into the Chinese hinterland along roads less travelled.
