Welcome to the website dedicated to UNWTO's Silk Road initiative!

UNWTO's Silk Road initiative functions as a collaborative platform designed to enhance sustainable tourism development along the historic Silk Road routes. The initiative aims to maximize the benefits of tourism development for local Silk Road communities, while stimulating investment and promoting the conservation of the route's natural and cultural heritage. Additionally, it is working to foster greater co- operation between Silk Road countries and regions, with the established aim of creating a seamless and memorable Silk Road travel experience.
