Train Travel Tips
Befriend some other travellers and look after each other, and each other’s gear, on these great train adventures. At least travel insurance will give you peace of mind if something does happen to go missing.
At over 9000 kilometres in length, and taking a full week non-stop by train, the journey from Moscow to Vladivostok would have to be close to the biggest train adventure available. Or do the several other Trans-Siberian routes surpass it? Moscow to Beijing is another option, as is Moscow-Ulan Bator (Mongolia)-Beijing with the latter shaving 1500 kilometres and a day’s travel off the comparable trip to Vladivostok. From Vladivostok there is a weekly ferry to continue one’s journey to Japan or South Korea. With around seven days worth of travel, you’ll have plenty of time to get to know the Russians, Chinese or other Western travellers on board!
