Epic Journey?

So I have heard about some people who have taken trains from London to Bangkok.. and so I’m starting to research the reverse options for fall.

Here’s the opposites day version of what the route would look like:

Step 1: London to Moscow by train. Daily departures, 2 nights, from about £160 one-way with sleeper. Spend at least 1 night in Moscow.

Step 2: Moscow to Beijing by Trans-Siberian Railway Two trains a week, 6 nights, from about $450 one-way in 4-bed sleeper. Spend at least 1 night in Beijing.

Step 3: Beijing to Hanoi by train Two trains a week, 2 nights, about $150 or £75 one-way in soft sleeper. Spend at least 1 night in Hanoi.

Step 4: Hanoi to Saigon by train Several trains daily, 2 nights. Why not stop off to see Hue or Hoi An? About $80 or £40 one-way in soft sleeper.

Step 5: Saigon-Phnom Penh by bus Daily, 1 day. Spend at least 1 night in PP.

Step 6: Phnom Penh-Battambang by train or bus, bus to the frontier, train to Bangkok.

…. and then to add a dream to a dream…

There are trans-atlantic freighter boats that take 10-15 days to cross the ocean, and charge about $100 per day for room and board. details.

Any takers???

haha, love to you all,

    I’d totally do it if I had some time to kill. Can we make a side-trip to Mongolia, too?
