0.00 CHF

Marco Polo's itinerary in Volume V takes us into southern China, recently conquered by the Mongol emperor. It leads from Huaian, then situated on the banks of the Yellow River, to the great southern port of Quanzhou, where Marco Polo would embark back to Europe in 1291. On route, the reader follows the Grand Canal and stops in the famous cities of Yanzhou, then Suzhou - the Venice of China - before reaching Hangzhou, the magnificent Song capital, and finally the busy ports of Fuzhou and Quanzhou. Marco Polo hasn't lost any of his curiosity in the landscapes, the buildings, local products or customs.
