MIR’s new Silk Route travel brochure

SEATTLE, WA — MIR Corporation, a tour operator specializing in journeys to the crossroads of Europe and Asia, is pleased to announce publication of its latest specialty brochure, Experience the Silk Route, Your Route – Your Way.

The Great Silk Route was not a single road; it was a far-flung fabric woven of strands of lonely camel tracks leading from the East to the West and back again. Modern travelers on MIR’s tours join a storied history of explorers who found the lure of the Silk Route’s spices, silks and rugs too strong to resist. MIR has been specializing in Silk Route travel for over 20 years and have lent their expertise to producing an informative brochure detailing one of the world’s most legendary routes.

Available online via the catalog request page or by calling MIR at 1-800-424-7289, MIR’s Silk Route travel brochure translates dreams into on-the-ground realities, suggesting pre-planned itineraries through the Silk Route countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Western China. The piece assists travelers in sorting out the many options for Central Asia travel, including the possibility of an independent travel package to the region.

Concentrating on Uzbekistan travel is one strategy that MIR recommends. The fabled Silk Route oases of Bukhara, Samarkand and Khiva – all three of them home to UNESCO World Heritage Sites – are all located in Uzbekistan and offer travelers some of the best highlights and history of the Silk Route.

Silk Route travel can include the five ‘Stan countries, Western China and Iran.
