We took 3 trains on the Trans-Siberian line. Taking the Trans-Siberian train has always been a dream of ours and we’re so happy that we have finally done it!
Check out our video on Taking The Trans-Siberian Train!
The first train was the official Trans-Mongolian K3 from Beijing to Ulan Bator, then we hopped on the 005Ь train from Ulan Bator to Irkutsk. After a few days around Lake Baikal and Olkhon Island, we headed up to Omsk on the 197И train. This quick video will give you an idea of what the trains are like, what the restaurants are like and what you can expect when taking the Trans-Siberian train.
