Details

Eastbound from Moscow (or St Petersburg) across Siberia, then down through Harbin, northern China, to Beijing 

For those with a short time budget (also avoiding the cost of a Mongolian transit visa). Should your time or budget not allow one of our more substantial programmes, it is possible to purchase an express ticket to travel directly from Beijing through northern China and Siberia to Moscow or vice versa.

Departures from St Petersburg every Saturday

Here is the Westward (East to West) itinerary.

The itineraries detailed here use the standard train and are for more independent travellers. If you prefer different levels of travel comfort, do consider our luxury private train options.
