has travelled Asia!!

Trans Mongolian Railway (p. 4/5)

Irkutsk-Ulaanbaatar was the most expensive ticket till now, even if it is not at all far compared to Ekatherinburg-Irkutsk (and I’m somewhat afraid of whats Ulaanbaatar-Beijing is going to cost), but the train was anyway much less comfy! Also it took us 8.5 hours only to cross the boarder – I entered Russia (afoot) in only half an hour!! And during the whole time the toilets were closed…
Therefore I can unfortunate not recommend doing this part by train!

In return I had a very nice french couple in my coupé and I slept nearly all the time anyway (;
