This story letter will transport you back in time from Venice to China via the Gobi desert, where you will read the fascinating life story of one of the most famous travellers of all time...Marco Polo!

.
Though he was not the first European to reach China, Marco (born over 750 years ago) was the first to leave a detailed account of his experience, which provided a clear picture of the geography and culture of the far East. Marco's book provided the first western record of porcelain, coal, gunpowder, paper money, and some Asian plants and exotic animals! Kublai Khan enjoyed Marco's stories so much that he asked him to explore his vast kingdom and report back to him all he witnessed. Little did Marco know at the time, but this would be a role of his for the following 17 years!!!
