Route Across Asia

You know, sometimes I can read your mind. If I tell you to get on a trip from St. Petersburg in Russia across the whole Asia and ending up in Bali, I am sure you are thinking: “I want to get on this trip”. So here it is a few words of what this amazing offer is about and maybe I tempt you to discover more about this route across Asia!

Many times we have heard about the train that runs across Russia into Mongolia. The Trans Siberian. I have personally never taken this experience but anytime I hear about it there is something that shakes in my stomach. Even if it is just a train, the whole story about crossing Siberia sounds by itself like an adventure.

Get your flights to Europe, take a connection to St. Petersburg, and you are at the edge of beginning the route across Asia, probably the dream trip of your life. You will run across the vast Russian landscapes in a guided tour offered by an adventure travel company, entering then Mongolia with the enormous impact between Western and Eastern cultures. Visiting many cities in Mongolia, including its capital, you will continue your journey into China, Beijing, the Great Wall, down into central cities and towns, back to the business world across Hong Kong, and then turning left to explore the countries of Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand. After exploring these amazing cultures into real paradise, the trip will follow down to Malaysia, crossing and visiting the state of Singapore and finally entering Indonesia to end at the eastern part of it, in Bali.

The way this company prepares this trips in in a group of between 1 and 16 persons, with an expert guide for each country, and using several means of transport, many times local transport in order to make you feel the real life of these lands. No luxury should be expected, but if you love to be in deep contact with other cultures and experience life in it’s primitive sense, then this trip is for you. Staying at local guest-houses and cottages will be normal, although some good quality hotels have been included in the route. Some meals will be included with the price, which is probably the most astonishing feature of the trip. You could get all this for only 5000 Euros (US$7750).

Having experience in this market, I must lower my head and admire with respect these great guys who are able to place a guided 103 days adventure for this price. The only thing I can say is that I won’t miss this trip, and tell you guys that if you have the money and the time to do it, don’t think it twice. It “has” to be good, just because of how it looks when you draw the lines in the map!
