China Silk Road Map

About two millenniums ago, the camel bell ringing from Chinese merchant groups opened a miraculous trade route from Chinese’ ancient Capital, Chang’an (today’s Xian) to central Asia and further to Mediterrean, gaining a loud name: Silk Road. The road stretches out 6440 km in total, incredibly uncovering a variety of scenery to the world with the help and effort from those brave pioneers like the merchants, Marco Polo, Zhangqian, Banchao and Xuanzang, including historic and cultural relics, natural marcels of hills, lakes, desert and grassland, ethnic minorities, local architectures and markable technologies…

Echoing the ever prosperity, Silk Road re-springs to life today in not only trade but also travel: when more and more fabulous pictures and videos of the ancient Chinese Silk Road are exposed on the facebook and Youtube, numerous people are fascinated to trace Marco Polo’s footprints and package luggage to discover those shining relics and fabulous views buried in yellow sand…Are you one of the excited China Silk Road trip planner?

How Do I Plan a Silk Road Tour in China?

We strongly suggest you to plan a China Silk Road Tour at least 3-6 months in advance to guarantee all the travel details are sorted out well. Generally speaking, you need 1-2 weeks for a China Silk Road Tour and travel during May to October. The China Silk Road usually refers to the gigantic region from Xi’an westward to Gansu with Lanzhou, Xiahe, Zhangye, Wuwei, Jiayuguan and Dunhuang, and then to Xinjiang with Turpan, Urumqi, Ili, Kanas, Kashgar and more. Thus, the exact itinerary depends on your interest: history lover is suggested with Gansu and ethnic culture goer is suggested with Xinjiang while both two are rich in natural landscapes. If you have 10 and more days, you can consider a in-depth Silk Road Tour in China of Gansu and Xinjiang; if 15 more days, you can consider to extend your Silk Road tour in Central Asia with the 5 stans countries.
