Alongside the destinations on our regular Silk Road tour, we have added two ancient towns to our special winter Silk Road itinerary.
One is Yongtai Ancient Town, which has survived deep within the Gobi Desert for hundreds of years and is known by its nickname “Turtle City,” as it is said to resemble the shape of a turtle. Being isolated from the modern world, Yongtai has beautifully maintained traditional buildings and culture, although this historic location is slowly vanishing as its residents move to China’s bustling cities.
Our other exciting add-on is Wuwei, which was historically one of the most important towns along the Silk Road. Since it is currently not accessible via high-speed train, Wuwei has yet to attract too much attention from tourists. However, its significance to the Silk Road means it can still tell us a lot about Chinese history. [find more]
