Marco Polo's travels resulted in a bringing back of knowledge of the Asian world. If not for him, the Europeans would have never known about life in Asia and what great things were there. For example, he talked about Kublai Khan's great luxurious palace.

His travels also encouraged Europeans to seek new things and discover the unknown world outside of Europe. Columbus famously brought Marco Polo's book, The Travels, with him on his voyages.
