Her amazing story of Silk Road Journeys takes you into 1,000 year-old Buddhist caves in western China and India, across the Taklamakan Desert and over the Pamir Mountains into Uzbekistan. You will travel the maritime route which became important from the sixth century as trading units tried to cut out the middle man. Follow the Dhow along the Nile, stop at Petra and join a caravan or continue on to Sri Lanka and then to the great Indian port of Mamallapuram to the site of the five chariots. Your travels will also take you to Myanmar, Cambodia and Vietnam.
