Reading "The book of wonders" by Marco Polo I pictured myself in the old caravans, trading with silk, in the Summer Palace. Visiting Xian and Dunhuang, as part of a big travel from Samarkanda to Beijing, was in a way like making my dream come true.<BR>
In this page I've included Dunhuang and Lanzhou, as there is no page for them in VT.<BR>
For a detailed info and experiences of the trip, take a look at my <a href=http://www.virtualtourist.com/m/.142359/article/72/52/?s=G>Travel Diary</a>.

    Great informative page on one of the oldest and largest civilisation. It was really a virtual tour.

    Fascinating place - I'd heard of the terracotta warriors before, but this is the first I've heard of the caves and the dunes. Super page & travel diary, too!
