Experience the legendary 8,000 km trans-continental Railway between Europe and Asia on board a privately chartered train. During the rail journey your cabin is your ‘home on wheels’ and in selected cities you will stay in 4-star/5-star hotels. Choose either to fly between Ulaanbaatar and Beijing and have more time for sightseeing, or cover the distance by train passing through the stony Gobi Desert.
The train offers a choice of 4 different types of accommodation as well as two beautifully decorated restaurant cars, a cosy bar with live piano music in the evening and a conference lecture for lectures and on board entertainment. Stops for land excursions at the route’s most interesting places are included every day. In cities such as Yekaterinburg in the Ural Mountains, Irkutsk near Lake Baikal and Ulaanbaatar (the capital of Mongolia), hotel nights in internationally managed 4-star hotels are included, allowing you more time to explore these places and enjoy a relaxed journey. Hotel nights in Moscow and in Beijing in 4-star/5-star hotels are also included. The journey may be booked either eastbound, starting in Moscow, or westbound, starting in Beijing.
