Eastern Trans-Siberian

Introducing Eastern Trans-Siberian

Most travellers that make it this far east stick within this region, which extends along the final 40 hours or so of railroad that runs through anonymous villages north of the Chinese border, over the Amur River to lively Khabarovsk, and south through Primorsky Territory, ending at Vladivostok, just 100 miles from the North Korea border.

Natural attractions are generally more rewarding in regions further north, but Khabarovsk and Vladivostok are the region’s most lively cities, with sushi bars, big business and plenty of fashionistas pounding summer sidewalks, while Blagoveshchensk has the region’s most impressive tsarist architecture.
