Spend Golden Week on a trip traveling the Silk Road which took tradesmen and monks across mountains, deserts and seas from Europe to Asia. The journey begins in Kashgar, an important hub on the Old Silk Road and a vibrant Islamic center within Chinese territory. Stroll through the Sunday market – the biggest farm trade market in central Asia. Experience the road on a camel ride in the Gobi Desert. Continue along this ancient trade route to see the ethnic cultures of the Tibetans, Tajiks and Uygurs; gorgeous ruins in Turpan; and impressive grottoes at Dunhuang. Click HERE for more information.
