Otherworldly experiences abound: watch the sun rise over the dunes outside Dunhuang, explore the world of the Muslim Uyghurs, spend the night in traditional yurts near Urumqi, and venture into the Taklamakan Desert to Kashgar. There’s more, of course, but we’ve got to keep a few secrets, right?

Highlights: Walk along two sections of the Great Wall, stare down the Terracotta Warriors, ride a camel through sand dunes, learn about the Uyghur culture, stay in a traditional Kazakh yurt, bargain at Kashgar's Sunday bazaar
