Chinese navigator Zhai Mo will appear in a new TV show in which he and his team, as cultural ambassadors of the new century, sail the old Maritime Silk Road, one of the earliest ancient trade routes connecting East and West.

In 2009, Zhai became the first Chinese to complete a solo circumnavigation of the globe in his yacht within two and half years.

The show, produced by Southeast TV in Fujian province, will start in Pingtan in Fujian. Zhai and his team of about eight sailors from different countries will travel across Asia, Africa and Europe, stopping in countries such as Singapore, Egypt and Greece and completing the tour in Milan, Italy.
