The Silk Road, also called the Silk Route, served as a bridge between the East and the West in ancient times. In fact, the cultural exchanges along the road has left an important mark in human history, the patterns of which are visible even today. Join us on this 14-day guided tour and explore the regions in China from where the Silk Road travels through, including Urumqi, Kashgar, Turpan and Duhan.

Fly to Kashgar, also known as the pearl of the ancient Silk Road, via Urumqi next. Visit the famous Sunday Bazaar in Kashgar. Also see the Id Kah Mosque, a 500-year-old mosque that holds special significance among locals, and take a walk down Kashgar’s old street. See the highlights of Turpan before taking the high-speed train to Dunhuang.

Located on the edge of the Gobi Desert, Dunhuang was once a frontier garrison on the Silk Road. it’s claim to fame rests on the Mogao Caves, a complex of 492 grottoes adorned with Buddhist statuary and frescoes. Next, its time to see the defining symbol of more than two millennia of Chinese history. Travel to Xian and visit the Terracotta Army Museum, home to the Terracotta Army, with your tour guide.

In sharp contrast to this enduring legacy of more than 2,000 years of Chinese history stands Shanghai, your final destination on the itinerary. A modern-day metropolis and China’s financial capital, Shanghai is probably the best place in the country to experience the collision of culture and modernity.
