Central Asia, China & the Far East Back

The fabled names of the cities of Central Asia evoke images of ancient trade routes and of fascinating diverse cultures – think Istanbul, Esfahan, Samarkand, Bishkek, Xi'an, Beijing, and Ulaanbaatar. All of these places have a unique atmosphere and are each wonderful to visit in their own way! 

Overlanding the fabled Silk Road

Go overland and follow in the footsteps of the early merchants and traders who came through the Silk Road on their epic journeys to bring silk between Asia and Europe.

For centuries Samarkand, Bukhara and Khiva were trading posts along the Silk Road, their magnificently opulent mosques and palaces presided over by fearsome Khans. In ancient times the Chinese considered this the edge of the known world, and even today few tourists make it this far. 

As well as the incredible history and legacy of the Silk Road, you'll also experience the incredible architecture, language and music of the many different cultures that comprise the region, and travel through the stunning scenery of the Persian Deserts, the high Himalayan Plateau of Tibet, the vast steppes of Mongolia or the bizarre rock formations of southern China.

Your only limit is your sense of adventure

Whether you are looking for just a few days away or want to combine trips to create the epic journey of a lifetime – perhaps from Istanbul to Beijing via Georgia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, or the whole length of China through Indochina to Bangkok, or overland from Beijing to Ulaanbaatar and explore Mongolia – there’s no limit, other than how far you are willing to go in search of adventure!
