Tracing the Ancient Silk Route through China – New Travel Trend

Following the footsteps of Marco Polo and visiting centuries old markets, mosques and pilgrimage sites, tracing the ancient Silk Route through China – these are the modern travelers’ new trends as JOURNEYS International, a specialty tour operator based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, points out.

Famous old routes and special tours always attract people and fascinate. TV series or movies, books – all can make a person curious. Being able to experience for oneself a special trip a famous person made – like Marco Polo – or a special route – like the Silk Route – isn’t so hard to understand. It’s something special, seems like it brings back some old times, mixed with the advantages of new time. Also, it’s that fascination of being able to do for you something only some people did in the past.

Travelers prefer less-traveled, often obscure threads of the earliest intercontinental commerce, therefore Silk Route in China becomes a great idea. “Just as in ancient times, the preferred route keeps changing based upon hostilities, banditry and diplomatic warnings. These days not many tourists choose to follow the routes through northern Pakistan or Afghanistan, but the routes in western China connecting Beijing with modern day Xian, Hotan, Dunhuang, Urumqi and Kashgar are safe, seldom-visited and inspiring,” said JOURNEYS Director Will Weber. “Modern inhabitants of these ancient sites are rediscovering their appreciation for contemporary travelers and, in turn, travelers’ interests are spurring a revival of ancient architecture, art and customs.”

JOURNEYS International is offering a 14-day group trip of “Tracing the Ancient Silk Route” for September 2012. Of course modern technology, guides and specialized people help travelers nowadays to have a complete experience. The company also offers summer vacations in India, Tibet and Mongolia and feature many other interesting destinations in their offer.

Would you take some of these trips?
