    Great video 🙂 Looks like a really interesting trip and the views from the train were beautiful. What is that weird instrument the bearded man was playing?!

      Thanks Amy! It was an old man in St Petersburg playing a saw with a violin bow (!)

    Bonjour !!

    Hey Guys,

    I’m setting off in a couple months to travel the Trans-Siberian railway from St. Petersburg to Mongolia !! I was wondering if you could list some of the best places you visited, and whether you think doing the journey solo is a good idea?

    Take care boys !!

      Hi Steg thanks for the message. You will be fine by yourself. Tip – there’s a samovar so take bowls, cups, supermarket food and stuff like tea/coffee/sugar.

      St Petersburg was obviously lovely. Moscow too. We stopped at Yekaterinburg to break it up and it’s got a line going around the city to follow all the tourist attractions (look out for the QWERTY keyboard and Beatles monument). And finally Irkutsk is nice for a trip to Lake Baikal.

      The journey from Irkutsk to Ulan Ude is the most scenic so do this during the day. We then took the bus from UU to Ulan Bator because it was cheaper and quicker. Mongolia itself was one of the highlights of our entire trip and stayed there a month.
