Thank you for visiting my website I hope you learn lots about Marco Polo!
Marco Polo travelled to China with his father and uncle over the Silk Road which was an overland route to China. He worked for Kublai Khan, the Mongol Emperor, for seventeen years. He sailed home instead of going overland. He brought back ivory, jade, jewels, porcelain and silk. He told about the Chinese use of coal, money and compasses. He met Rustichello, a famous writer, who wrote about Marco Polo's travels in a book called "The Travels of Marco Polo". Marco Polo became famous for his travels through Central Asia and China. His book gave Europeans some of their earliest information about China.
