• I'd like to appreciate all your considerate arrangement and great help for my trip. Visiting Tibet was always my longing. And I finally made it come true with your guys. Everything at there was so attractive and mysterious to me. I would never forget the beautiful things in Lhasa and Shigatze.
    -- From Leonard Lee

Silk Road Tours

The Silk Road is surely one of the oldest routes of international trade in the world. There was no single "Silk Road," but rather hundreds of old routes and scores of trading posts that formed a vibrant overland trade network between China, Central Asia, and Europe. The overland Silk Road, with starting point at Changan (now Xian city) of Shaanxi province, past Gansu province and Xinjiang province, reached the remote Europe from China in the ancient time.
It is through the Silk Road that the old Chinese civilization got to be known to the world and the outside world came to understand ancient Chinese life.
