Memorable parts? The most memorable parts of my holiday were, firstly, Moscow that I absolutely loved and where I would like to spend more time, secondly, the Great Wall of China and, thirdly, the cultural show in Ulaanbataar.

From
£2,599

Memorable parts? The railway journey from Beijing to Moscow itself. Tips? Do not overload yourself with sleeping bags, liners, towels etc. On the trains, hotels etc. these are always provided wherever you stay. Local benefits? Overall rating? The operator should not skimp on providing transfers. At the start and at the end, we had to lug our belongings over rough pavements, crowds and walk quite a distance to get to our destination.
