VLADIVOSTOK OVERVIEW

Vladivostok is the almost legendary end (or beginning) of the true Trans-Siberian line. For years this city was closed to foreigners as it is the home base of the Russian Pacific Fleet. It has a fantastic location on the Amursky Gulf and an air of prosperity that you may not have noticed much since you left Moscow. The city is considerably further East than Beijing, in fact closer to Japan, and is looking good following extensive renovation work on its ornate boulevards completed for the 2012 APEC summit.

REASON TO VISIT VLADIVOSTOK

For those wanting to complete the true Trans-Siberian the full trip between Moscow and Vladivostok is a must although it is often overlooked in favour of the Trans-Mongolian to Beijing.

VLADIVOSTOK TRAVEL TIP

Vladivostok is best reached from Beijing (by air although train is also possible) or Japan by ferry or air links. It is well worth a few days either to get your legs back after the long trip from Moscow or to acclimatize to Russia before heading west.

HAND PICKED VLADIVOSTOK ACCOMMODATION

For along time the Lotte Hotel has been considered the best option in the city but it is a little too far from the centre for our liking. More centrally located options are the AzimutPrimorye Hotel and the recent Sibirskoe Podvorie but it is safe to say that hotel accommodation is not really the reason for visiting Vladivostok!
