The Silk Road: Get on The Beaten Track

The movement of people, commodities, culture – and, yes, silk – along the Silk Road is one of the oldest connections between East and West. The interest in fabrics, spices and animals from far off lands held an intrigue that quickly made the Silk Road an essential intercultural connection of its time.

Building a Global Economy

The Silk Road a network of pathways that criss-cross Central Asia; from China, through the Middle East, to Italy and onward to Europe. As trade routes picked up during the Middle Ages, the paths became more frequently travelled. The increased traffic attracted local merchants, markets, and inns to the Silk Road path; in turn, creating settlements.

Even more important than the physical landscape that the Silk Road created were the cultures, customs, and languages that it helped fortify. Civilizations began to meet, and interactions with other languages developed, ushering in an opportunity for the separate civilisations of the world to meet through the global economy. 

Today, many of these sites and cultures prevail, paving the way of the Silk Road, and outlining the path once followed by merchants and explorers.

I recently toured Qatar during the World Cup with Varya and Mike’s team at World of Discoveries. The experience over three weeks was first class. Varya and her team nailed the detail for every aspect of the trip from planning and booking through to the actual travel, tours, sightseeing, transport, accommodation and ticketing to games. They were always accessible to deal with any issues that arose and went the extra mile to ensure the travelling group was happy, organised and safe. And they throw a mean party. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend World of Discoveries for trips of a lifetime.

We came across WOFDI last spring when we were trying to figure out how to attend the World Cup. The staff at WOFDI organized game tickets and accommodation for us. Communication was excellent throughout. They provided airport transfer and cultural tours as well. Wonderful experience!

As avid sports enthusiasts, particularly in tennis, my husband and I have eagerly awaited the opportunity to venture out again after years of staying home due to the COVID situation. We decided it was time to break free and fulfill our dream of visiting France to witness the thrilling Roland Garros tournament. While we typically prefer organizing our own travels, we recognized that exploring a vast country like France warranted the expertise of a travel agency. Our aim was to take a tour that encompassed attending the male semifinal and final matches, as well as visiting Normandy's Landing Beaches, the renowned wine regions of Champagne and Bordeaux, and ending up with a few relaxing days at the beach. After some initial hesitation, we entrusted World of Discoveries (Wofdi) with our travel plans, and it turned out to be a remarkable decision. Wofdi meticulously designed a comprehensive itinerary that not only fulfilled our desires but surpassed our expectations. The knowledgeable guides who accompanied us throughout the journey, the seamless transport arrangements, and the exceptional attention to detail demonstrated by the Wofdi team left us in awe. Looking back on our trip as we now bask in the delightful sunshine of Nice, we can confidently say that every aspect was flawlessly planned and executed. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to the entire team for making our European summer vacation truly unforgettable.
