Silk Road Holidays and Group Tours in China

This enormous country has long been an enigma to the rest of the world, and some of its regions are even more so, far removed from what most people would think of as ‘China’. We concentrate on the remote province of Xinjiang, a land intricately tied to the history of the Silk Road, with the ruins of ancient civilisations bearing testament to the importance that the region once held and belonging more to Central Asia than China. Well away from the tourist crowds that can plague other parts of China, Xinjiang offers real opportunities for adventure and new discoveries. Forget what you think you know about China and visit this intriguing region with Undiscovered Destinations.
