Product Description

The Silk Road Insight Guide is the complete illustrated guide to one of the world's ultimate travel adventures. Passing right through the heart of Asia, the ancient trade route traverses a quarter of the globe from the heart of China to the Mediterranean via a vast, inhospitable expanse of mountains and desert.

The guide covers all the sights along the way across 13 countries and 6 time zones, with authoritative chapters on the Silk Road's history and culture to put it all into context. The magic of the journey is brought to life through evocative photography, and is complemented by lavish 'Photo Features' which offer a unique insight into various aspects of the route: these include details of silk production, the ancient treasures that have been discovered along the route, and the colourful bazaars - which are a reminder of the Silk Road caravanserais of the distant past.

Our inspirational 'Best of The Silk Road' section highlights the unmissable sights and experiences, while a comprehensive 'Travel Tips' section gives you all the practical information you need to plan your trip - whether it be a short section or the entire Silk Road.
