From the inflight magazines for Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon
We know you’re after a good read for your summer holiday, so we’ve created this special collection of short fiction. Each is original, written just for Silkroad, and set in a different Asian country. We hope they give you a fresh perspective on culture, place and people, in a way that only fiction can.
