how to make 2018 the year on the silk road
2018 is your year to experience the legendary Silk Road! Trace the overland caravan routes developed from the trade of silk, spices, tea, porcelain, frankincense and other goods between the lands of the Mediterranean, Middle East, Central Asia and Eastern Asia. The Silk Road is the world’s oldest and longest trade route, serving as a bridge between Eastern and Western cultures for more than a thousand years until maritime routes became more popular.
Since 1978, Bestway Tours & Safaris has ventured into the less travelled Silk Route and beyond. We have explored locations and Caravan Serais (roadside inns) from Xian in the east to Damascus in the west. We invite you to join us. Experience the more exploratory overland routes or travel in comfort and style by private and deluxe train journeys to create you once-in-a-lifetime Silk Road experience.
