Red Express - 9 Days

Welcome aboard a journey of adventure and self-discovery, as you travel through Russia, Mongolia and China on the inimitable Trans-Siberian railway.
Journey thousands of kilometers on rails through three wildly different countries: Russia, Mongolia and China, for an experience that is intense, colorful, loud, exciting, and larger-than-life. 

From your carriage window, watch ever-changing landscapes go by. The vibrancy of Beijing and Moscow, undulant green steppes where Mongolian horsemen herd wild horses, dramatic dragon-toothed mountains, cinematic lakes, and more reveal themselves to you with every turn of the clacking wheels. Inside the train, find yourself part of a small community, chatting with fellow travelers, playing cards, and sharing instant coffee with locals.
