Follow the Silk Road, the ancient trade route dating back to the Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 CE), which helped to forge political and economic ties between China, Indian, Persia, Europe, and Arabia and allowed for the trade of culture, religions, syncretic philosophies, and various technologies among the civilizations along this ancient road.
