Check out and transfer to the train station. This train cuts across the Gobi desert and Mongolia, then crosses Siberia.The entire road from Beijing to Moscow makes 7,621 km (4,735 mile) and if you do it non stop, you will spend 6 days on board! We, however, do a hop on/hof off train tour and split the journey to a few legs.
The first leg of your journey will last just about one day. This weekly Trans-Mongolian Train N3 leaves Beijing every Wednesday morning. Train Beijing - Ulan Bataar has deluxe soft sleeper (2-berth compartment, 1st class) and soft sleeper (4-berth compartment, 2nd class). Travelling in winter is as beautiful - and safe - as at any other time of the year and there is something truly special in endless snow landscapes one can not find anywhere else on the planet.
