The long and winding Silk Road in northwest China
has a history of more than two thousand years.
The opening of the Silk Road has contributed greatly
to the exchange and development of ethical and
material civilization between the East and West.
The wild and desolate Gobi desert, grasslands,
snowy mountains and the ruins of ancient cities
on the Silk Road remind visitors of mysterious
legends that are closely associated with them,
evidence of the rise and fall of successive dynasties.
You can't help heaving a sigh with emotion when
you stand on the ruins of an ancient city, which
used to be so
bustling and prosperous and is
now reduced to yellow mounds. When you are warmly
entertained by local resident, and watch their
unique art performances or stroll through their
bazaars, you will find their life style and customs
simple and yet colorful, strange and yet intimate.
