Exploring Chinese Culture Part 2: The Silk Road presented by Kit Lau
The caravan routes of ancient times not only enabled the trading of silk as a commodity, but also helped spread world culture between the East and the West as merchants, travelers and diplomats traversed the route. Through tales and photos of the presenter’s Silk Road journey, you’ll venture across the Gobi Desert and view glacial formations, villages and towns to experience the life of a Silk Road traveler.
