This is the story of a journey following the Silk Road, from Europe to China, beginning in London. The real journey starts in Istanbul, winding through the history and countryside of Turkey and over the border into Iran, to experience its rich history and architecture. There are bizarre experiences of the beautiful, modern but empty city of Ashgabat, and much more. A trip to the disappearing Aral Sea, is followed by immense architecture and history, across a land fought over by Alexander the Great, Tamarind and Genghis Khan. There is the enchanting mountains of Kyrgyzstan, with its beautiful mountains and lakes, known as Asia's little Switzerland. The scene slowly changes as the Muslim influence gives way to Han Chinese dominance, the Great Wall of China and the end of the Silk Road.
