China's Belt & Road: THE SILK ROAD REVISITED (Chinese Version)
A thoughtful photographic journey through the region that was host to China's fabled Silk Road.
Newly (re)celebrated due to President Xi Jinping's Belt and Road initiative with its wide-ranging diplomatic and economic vision, the region is one of inexpressible natural beauty.
Here, Zhou Chunlai takes us from the Road's fabled beginnings in China's Xi'an, through Ningxia, Gansu, and Xinjiang, and winds us practically all the way to its exit at the famous Jiayuguan Gate. There, Chinese travelers would begin their journey to the West, while foreign traders seeking out the wonders of the Middle Kingdom, would begin their search, most especially for its precious silk!
