Silk Road Attractions

Instilled with such romantic ideals as following in the footsteps of Marco Polo, a rapidly increasing number of people have been interested in visiting these desolate places. Whilst some people are drawn by the archaeology, others are attracted by the minority peoples. Tourists are also drawn to the mysterious cities with a variety of attractions, such as Kashgar, where the Sunday market maintains much of the old Silk Road spirit, with people of many different nationalities selling everything from spice and wool to livestock and silver knives.
