About
The Silk Road was a commercial road for transportation, trade and cultural exchanges between ancient China and foreign countries, and the Hexi Corridor was the throat for the 'Silk Road' to go west. We will not only follow the ancient camel fleet through the place to re-take the ancient Silk Road but also explore the spectacular view of the northwest plateau. Looking for the most beautiful scenery outside the fortressand to feel the distance of the Silk Road and savor the depth of history.

The views were incredible - the mountains, landforms (Yadan and Danxia), desert sand dunes, salt lakes, grassland, blue skies, white clouds, etc. And there were the historical sites - remnants of the Great Wall, military bases, and the grottoes. I have never taken so many pictures with my camera before. The hotel accommodation was generally very good and so was the food - with understandable exceptions when we were in the more remote towns. There were no 'forced' shopping stops. We had to find our own time to shop at mini markets, night markets, road side stalls, departmental stores, and stalls outside scenic areas. The itinerary was well paced and not hectic. The company was good and we all became friends quickly. Of course, we had an excellent tour manager - Ken Wang. He made things so easy for us. He looked effortless, but I am sure he worked hard behind the scene. He is bilingual and that is a plus for non mandarin speaking person like me. He often had to repeat what he said in mandarin to English and vice versa. And he told us a lot about the history of Silk Road as well as the various dynasties. He was helpful and took troubles to give us a variety and quality in food. My wife and I had a great time (third trip with YAT) and look forward to the forth trip! (PS: Ken even gave my wife and me a surprise by organising a very memorable celebration of our 35th wedding anniversary)

It was an amazing & fun-filled dreamt trip that enabled me to understand more in-depth of d history of d silkroad eversince 2000 years back that linked to d tradings between d eastern & western part of d ancient world.

It also provided me d opportunity to view the geological Danxia landforms,camel troops at d Ghobi Desert, mountaneous Huashan, gigantic Qinghaihu & Kanbula lake, grape & goji fruit yards in these areas of the mainland China.

Windfield letric generation & the hiden Huanghe Lijiaxia hydroelectric dam views are some of the bonus that I never expected of.

No doubt the daily travelling journeys were long, but is worthy indeed to gain exposure to these places by our own on site vision. Whatmore, we were mostly entertained by historical explanations ancient China dynasties, Herxi Corridor, songs, jokes & amusements by our friendly bilangual tour manager Ken Wung.

Food n hotel accommodation were above my expectations in general, hence can relaxed n stress-free from the hefty workloads during the tour. It was a great trip that I had undertaken together with many easy get along new tourmates

I have stopped guided tour for a long time! My friend highly recommended me YAT Travel. I was a bit hesitated initially but “Silk Road” is the road I wanted to explore. YAT travel changed my perception entirely of those tiring guided tour concept. It turned out that it was my most enjoyable guided tour. The wake up time, the accommodation, the food, the experienced tour guide Ken Wang made the whole trip so good! I would say the food was very good with his effort in selecting the dishes for us and reminding the chef (less oil, less salt! 😁)! The restaurant we went were the local best! I can hear him arranging the restaurant and the food along the way before each meal! Appreciate very much of his customer-oriented services and effort. Of course, can’t do without the history of Silk Road, I have learnt so much of the history of Silk Road, dynasties, Hexi Corridor etc...Ken has put it in chronological order and we absorbed it quite easily.and it linked on so much when we visited the actual site. I think he would be good history teacher with his experiences! Excellent tour!
