Travel the Silk Route

sindzianuiguria-pamir-20050816___0522The Silk Route (or Road) is a remaining piece of history was a connection of roads that tied together the countries of Asia, Europe, The Middle East, and Northern Africa. Starting a few thousand years ago, this road was to create trade and exchange throughout these countries, especially the trade of the beautiful and delicate product: silk.

Today, it’s a beautiful piece of history that holds interest and wonder for tourists. And, while there are many places that are worth stopping and seeing or doing along the Silk Route, this article outlines three specific ones to be sure to see or do if enjoying any of the countries along
15-statues-of-chinese-warriors-1the Silk Route.

The Terracotta Warriors/Horses Museum: This was one of the most important and amazing archeological discoveries of the 20th century, and it’s one of the great wonders of the world. Each figure is life size, and they are placed in a certain formation. Not only is the size of the figures astounding, but it’s the amount! Along with the soldiers, there are horses and other pottery works included. If traveling to China, this is one of the most important things to go and see! It’s located in Xi’an.

Go yurt camping: For those who are looking for a true Asian cultural experience, then camping in a p644590430-3yurt is an excellent choice. Yurts are animal skin covered, round, tent-like structures that are commonly used by more nomadic cultures such as in Mongolia. But, there are also opportunities to get the experience in the beautiful Uzbekistan landscape. Enjoy the connection with nature and the visibility of the night sky as you stay in a yurt surrounded by the Uzbekistan desert. One option is to take a yurt holiday with Aidar Yurt Camp.

Medeu Skating Rink and Ski Resort: For those who enjoy the colder climates, then skiing and ice skating is not hard to find in this area. This part of the world has many beautiful skiing areas that are shutterstock_186545969simply ideal for the ski holiday. Come check out the ski slopes and skating rink in Alamty, Kazakhstan for a breathtaking experience. It’s the highest skating rink in the world. Now that sounds like something worth seeing.

What’s so wonderful about this part of the world is that there is seemingly unlimited attractions and sites and experiences to enjoy because of the varied geography, climate, people, and cultural richness. Any trip is worth doing along the Silk Route, but these three are definitely worth the experience!
