Trans-Siberian Railway - Ulan-Ude to Vladivostok (Chapter)
This is the Ulan-Ude to Vladivostok chapter from Lonely Planet’s Trans Siberian Railway guidebook.
The Trans-Siberian’s last leg covers 3650km – that’s more than the Moscow–Ulan-Ude journey alone – as it rolls into Russia’s ‘wild east’. The people, like the countryside, are a bit wilder and more rugged than their Western brethren.
