There are many reasons for that decision taken by the traders.

1. In general transporting will be cheap if you take the route via sea than the land. (Ref: An inquiry into the Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith)

2. before European traders discovered the sea route to Asia, they use to take the land route, which passes via the Middle East. And when once the sea routes were discovered the costs of many imported goods fell to one third of its value.

So the European traders started to travel to Asia by the sea.

Why were some European traders interested in Marco Polo's adventures?

Polo's book was a best seller. He described places, people, and things that no one had ever seen. For men like Columbus it was a call to explore and to find ways to bring back the things people wanted. The man/country that found a water route to Asia would be very rich and dominate the waterways to Asia. This was motivated by riches, fame, and power.
