Transportation isn't simply a practicality, it can be an experience in itself.
The Trans-Siberian journey is the most legendary train ride of all, traversing a third of the globe, crossing up to 10 time zones from Moscow to Vladivostok and travelling a mammoth 9288km! No other form of travel offers a more relaxing and enjoyable way to absorb changing landscapes and meet interesting people than train travel. On this epic journey, stop off in Yekaterinburg to retrace the tragic last days of the Tsar Nicholas II and the Romanov family and stand with one foot in Europe and one in Asia. Pay a visit to the ‘pearl of Siberia’, the beautiful Lake Baikal, which is the deepest lake in the world and a massive 600km long and 80kms wide!
For those taking the Trans-Mongolian/Manchurian route, follow in the footsteps of Genghis Khan by jumping off at Ulaan Baatar in Mongolia where you can visit the beautiful sleeping in a traditional Ger.
