What makes this trip special?



“There is no railway journey of comparable length anywhere in the world.The Trans-Siberian is the big train ride. All the rest are peanuts.”

The Big Red Train Ride – Eric Newby

 The Trans-Siberian is the longest railway in the world

The Trans-Siberian crosses 1/3 of the planet

It stretches 8.000 km and it takes a minimum of 6 days to traverse the distance from Moscow to Vladivostok

The Trans-Mongolian Railway covers the distance from Siberia to Mongolia and ultimately, Beijing, China.

The routes

From Russia to China in 18 days – 7 different time zones – Countless memories


Trans –Siberian Railway

The original version of the railway departs from Moscow in order to cross Siberia and arrive in Vladivostok after almost 6 days – hence it’s name: the Trans-Siberian.


Trans – Mongolian Railway

The second route (the one we’ll be following) begins from Moscow crossing almost all Russia and then, through Mongolia, it arrives at Beijing in China. The Trans-Mongolian crosses 3 different countries in 6 days and it is considered to be one of the most exciting train routes.

Trans-Manchurian Railway

There is an alternative third route, the Trans-Manchurian, from Russia to China without crossing Mongolia.

Yes, I am interested!


I’m Maria Kofou, a blogger at the travel blog www.tstories.gr, digital marketeer and a journalist. One thing I love more than traveling is traveling by train! On July 2015, I finally made my dream of traveling solo aboard the Trans-Siberian and the Trans-Mongolian come true! On August 2016, I took my second Trans-Siberian trip, this time escorting a group of solo travelers from Puerto Rico.

So, this year, I decided I will help you make your dream come true! The Trans-Siberian is a dream for many travelers out there and since I’ve already made the trip twice, I am here to inspire and encourage you: step on the Trans-Siberian and join me in the adventure of your lifetime!

Welcome on board traveler!
