All aboard the Trans-Siberian RailwayBeijing, China

Having enchanted travellers for decades, the Trans-Siberian Railway celebrated its hundredth birthday in 2016. Weaving through Eurasia from Beijing to Saint Petersburg, this 9289-kilometre journey is the ultimate adventure. Explore China’s Forbidden City and soak up the history of the Great Wall, then settle into your carriage. Lose yourself in ever-changing landscapes as you’re whisked to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia’s capital.

Drive to Khustain National Park, where indigenous takhi (Asian wild horses) roam the grasslands, and spend a night at a traditional ger (yurt) camp living as the nomads do. Next, it’s full steam ahead into Russia. Visit the glassy waters of Lake Baikal in southern Siberia, and marvel at the unique architecture and eye-popping colours of St Basil’s Cathedral and the Kremlin in Moscow, before arriving at your final destination, Saint Petersburg. It might seem like a long journey, but there’s no better way to watch the world fly by than on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

 


The 23-day Trans Siberian Explorer with World Expeditions starts from around US$5650 a person.
