This is the complete illustrated guide to one of the world's ultimate travel adventures. Passing right through the heart of Asia, this ancient trade route traverses a quarter of the globe from the heart of China to the Mediterranean via a vast, inhospitable expanse of mountains and desert. The guide covers all the sights along the way across 13 countries and 6 time zones, with authoritative chapters on the Silk Road's history and culture to put it all into context. Highlights of the Silk Road's top attractions, including the great city of Isfahan, the ancient splendor of Persepolis and China's Terracotta Army are included in our Best of the Silk Road. Descriptive country-by-country accounts cover the whole route from China to Turkey by way of the 'Stans of Central Asia' and the geopolitical nerve centres of the Middle East. Detailed, high-quality maps throughout will help you get around and travel tips give you all the essential information for planning the trip of a lifetime.
