The Silk Road Society aims to bring likeminded people together who share a mutual interest in Silk Road travel and culture. We are not experts on the Silk Road and we share no political affiliation. The opinion of the commenters on the blog is not a reflection of the Silk Road Society, but rather of the individual.
Some of the countries listed in our database are highly unsafe to travel to, and we warn travellers to avoid regions of conflict or to exercise caution while travelling. Everything here is for information purposes only, and when it comes to travel safety it’s at the full responsibility of the individual.
