It was a trip with many adventures, many stops, a lot of different cultures. We end this journey with the feeling on how like we are, not many people get to know places so far away as Siberia or Mongolia.
We had a very warm welcome from everybody in the train, from the train staff, tour guides and directors from Lernidee Trains & Cruises. 16 days of wonderful experiences!
This trip carries a huge symbolism for the fact of travelling to one of the most famous train lines in the world.
For me the highlights of the itinerary were the Lake Baikal with the amazing Russian barbecue in the sunset and the Gorkhi-Terelj National Park in Mongolia, with all the pure traditions of the natives.
For this journey get ready to change a lot your clock because of the different time-zones. Also you will need to exchange your money to 3 different currencies: Russian Rubles, Mongolian Tugrik and Chinese Yuan. In China you will have the chance to spend more money with the Chinese pearls, Silk products like sheets and pillows and the famous Chinese electronics.
In our last night in Beijing we had the pleasure to try the delicious Peking Duck, the dish of the city, and a great way to say goodbye to this journey.
Special thanks to Lernidee Trains & Cruises
