Reunion of Turkey-China: the Last Caravan on Silk Road

The ancient Silk Road connected China and Turkey and witnessed the lasting friendship between two countries. From 1996 to 1997, a caravan led an expedition to the ancient Silk Road. They departed from the ancient capital Xi’an, went through 10 cities and Anatolia, and finally arrived in Istanbul in Turkey. It took them 18 months to finished the 12000-kilometer journey, capturing many precious moments.

 Retracing the Silk Road with wonderful images, let’s make a journey to the riverside of Tigris and witness the reunion of Turkey and China.
