What made Marco Polo the explorer famous?

Marco Polo is famous for his epic trek across Asia during the 13th century. He spent time 24 years in Asia in both the Chinese and Mongol courts before returning to Italy where he wrote his memoir. His book was copied and adapted so many times that the original version no longer exists.

Marco Polo is famous because he traveled to exotic places, such as China and along the silk road, and made detailed recordings of what he saw. Few Europeans knew of China at the time and his writings were eye-opening and fascinating.
