The "Silk Road Railway" trip starts from Shiraz and ends in Beijing. The "Silk Road Railway" trip is an explorer trip that takes 30 days taking you through Shiraz, Shiraz and Beijing in Iran and China. This is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Can you imagine how those early Silk Road traders felt as they set off for their long journeys to the distant empire they knew as Cathay? Today, the journey is easier but just as incredible, and the sights you’ll experience will be equally amazing.
