TREASURES OF ANCIENT CHINA
Asian and Caribbean Fusion to present a Asian inspired theme is a new chapter for Carnival Explosion.
Ancient China produced what has become the oldest extant culture in the world. The name ‘China’ comes from the Sanskrit Cina (derived from the name of the Chinese Qin Dynasty, pronounced ‘Chin’) which was translated as ‘Cin’ by the Persians and seems to have become popularized through trade along the Silk Road from China to the rest of the world.
Trough the Silk Road there where traded also the famous treasures of China who are still significant known of this rich culture till today. To pay tribute to a few treasures we carefully choose our sections for you.
