My trip to Australia I made overland because nowadays everyone with the aircraft can, and these often come down. The train from Belarus Station runs very slowly, partly on electricity, partly on diesel. The trip takes converted two weeks to come to China, but my experience is that it takes longer. At the Mongolian border, the whole train of wheels... More

We took this journey from St Petersburg to Beijing in September 2014 and it was one of the best experiences of our lives. We traveled 2nd class with our guide who gave us invaluable insights into the history and countryside through which we passed. We took most of our own food to eat on the train as a dining service...

An interesting trip. Had a great time! Our train journey was organised by Andrei from Rusrailtravel.ru (I would recommend them - great prices and no problems). We used a tour operator in Mongolia. The guide was excellent, but the tour itself was poor value for money. We strongly suspect that most (if not all) of the Mongolia tours are over-priced.... More

I traveled from Darkhan-Irkutsk in February 2015, for a trip to Lake Baikal. The trip was very comfortable (much comfier beds than the Mongolian carriages) and the bathrooms were fairly clean. I was used to Mongolian train rides, so I was expecting the same service (a cup of tea/coffee for free and people jumping on and off the train with... More

We travelled from Moscow to Ulan Bator (UB) in 1999 on the Trans Siberian Express. I will never forget that trip. The babushkas selling boiled potatoes at the train stops, the fresh baked bread and the locals trying to squeeze thru the train windows made for unforgettable memories. Here it is 2015 and that trip is still vivid. The trip... More

Just travelled with a friend with Vodkatrain to get from Australia over to Europe and had the time of my life! This trip is not for princesses and you must have an open mind when travelling through three of the most different countries in the world. If you want fancy hotels, and someone to cook for you then feed you... More

I was in Siberia in May of 2014 on a humanitarian visit with a friend. We had the chance to ride the train from Ulan-Ude to Chita. We found this trip to be very interesting. We were surprised by the accommodations as the train is not totally updated with new and modern acutriments. We had a great trip, would surely... More

Took the train from Moscow to Beijing December 2014, stopping off at Irkutsk for lake Baikal and Ulaan Baatar for a ger camp in the steppe. A once in a lifetime trip - highly recommended. The scenary in December is beautiful, with snowy forests eventually giving way to the steppes then the desert and finally the hills leading into Beijing.... More
