39. Board the Trans-Siberian Railway

Ranked #39 in our countdown of ‘100 Ultimate Travel Experiences of a Lifetime’.


Moscow to Vladivostok, Russia.

The longest railway line in the world (9289 kilometres of track) travels through the wilds of Siberia taking six nights to travel from Moscow to Vladivostok, and also branching off along the way into the Trans-Mongolian and Trans-Manchurian railways from where you can travel to Beijing, China, and then by connecting train to Vietnam and even Singapore if you are patient.
Or if you really have some time on your hands, you can go on by ferry to Japan and Korea.

No matter where you eventually
end up, it’s one of the great train journeys
of the world.
