China’s Silk Road – by Water

02/23/2015

The famous Silk Road, an ancient trade route extending from China to Eastern Europe, is the recent focus of China in terms of both historical preservation and touristic development. Now, visitors to China can experience the Silk Road first-hand, not just by land but also by water.

South China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region recently announced it will launch a cruise across the “Maritime Silk Road” – the same route on which merchant ships traveled centuries ago. Chinese President Xi Jinping and agencies such as the China National Tourism Administration have been working to promote the Silk Road, bringing new tourism opportunities as well as providing infrastructure for some once-remote regions of China. With burgeoning cruises along the Maritime Silk Road being opened up, the Silk Road is now accessible by land (via car, train, high-speed railway or bus) and water (on small-scale cruise ships that are ideal for the route).
