Clear your schedule for today, the 12th of June, at 3:30pm EDT (UTC-4) for a journey through culture and history as the weekly Travelers’ Night In (#TNI) Travel Chat on Twitter explores China and The Legendary Silk Road with the Chinese National Tourism Office.
The Silk Road, which first became a travel route around 206 BCE, is one of the original travel journeys we as a global society have a record of, and that route continues today as travelers explore it in many ways. Along the way travelers can travel by foot, boat, camel, train as they find the treasures of an ancient passage that has shaped global trade and international and intercultural travel .
The #TNI #Travel Chat, established in 2009, is the longest consistently running travel chat on Twitter, and its format is 10 questions, with a new question asked every 10 minutes for 90 minutes. We have a great community of regulars and encourage people to drop in for a topic they may enjoy, or of course keep coming back every week.
Joining the #TNI #Travel Chat is easy, simply follow the #TNI hashtag in your favourite Twitter application, or follow either @flyingwithfish or @Official_#TNI. You can also follow #TNI’s fantastic regular co-hosts @petchmo, @trvlinsalesgal or @jeromeshaw … and today follow @VisitChinaNow.

Happy Flying and hope to see you at #TNI!
