15 Days The Ancient Silk Road

Includes: Shanghai, Urumqi, Kashgar, Turpan, Jiayuguan, Dunhuang, Xi'an & Beijing

    2000 years ago, Emperor Wudi of the Han Dynasty dispatched an emissary to the west, not for trade, but for securing allies against the hordes intrusion from the north. That was the first time China opened its door to the western world. Since then, camel caravans, carrying spices, fruits and all kinds of goods from the west, continuously crossed the vast deserts and the freezing mountains to come to China for the seek of silk.
