Asia – in the footsteps of the legendary Marco Polo

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Asia is far away – and yet this continent with the Middle East is on Europe’s doorstep. The Venetian merchant Marco Polo was the first European to travel to China via the legendary trade route of the Silk Road.

When he returned home many years later, few believed what he had to say. Marco Polo’s journey to the distant Middle Kingdom was a journey through numerous cultures. Today, holidaymakers walk in the footsteps of the Venetian, because the Asian continent is an interesting destination with its scenic charms and its lovable people.

And Asia is fundamentally different, because a foray begins at the suspension bridge that spans the Bosporus in Istanbul and is the steel symbol for the threshold between the Occident and the Orient. On the Arabian Peninsula, miracles were created in the desert sand – the sources of oil made it possible.

Southeast Asia wears a tropical garb and stretches from eastern India to China and is a melting pot of various faiths. Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity and the philosophy of Taoism do not always go hand in hand peacefully in the countries of Asia. But journeys beyond the Bosporus are among the most beautiful moments for people who do not want to defend themselves against their wanderlust.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_empty_space][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][td_block_11 category_id=”72″ tdc_css=””][/vc_column][/vc_row]
