Trans-Siberian Tours Starting in Beijing
China’s capital of Beijing is another popular place to start a Trans-Siberian rail tour from. The city itself is a major attraction in it’s own right with such highlights as the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, Summer Palace and the Forbidden City. Two rail routes are possible from Beijing with by far the most frequently travelled being the Trans-Mongolian which, as the name suggests, passes through Mongolia. This country is scenically spectacular and culturally rich and makes for an ideal stopover to experience the nomadic life and vast expanses of open steppe.
“Saying excellent does not come close to expressing how amazing this trip was!! It is brilliant, the cities are unique and different at each stop and the scenery along the way is absolutely breathtaking!! I would love to do this trip again as it is the gift that kept on giving!!”

The second route from Beijing is the Trans-Manchurian that avoids Mongolia. This route passes through Harbin in north east China making it a superb winter option as you can visit the spectacular Harbin Snow and Ice Festival that runs each year from early January to mid-February.
We also offer the private Trans-Siberian train, the Tsars Gold, which is a comfortable way to explore the route as a group tour. There are set departures from Beijing to Moscow during the summer and autumn.
Finally, departing from Ulaanbaatar which can be easily reached from Beijing is the luxury Golden Eagle Train that offers one trip a year on this route to coincide with the Naadam Festival held in and around Ulaanbaatar each July.
