Trans-Siberian Railway - The Trans-Manchurian Route (Chapter)
This is the The Trans-Manchurian Route chapter from Lonely Planet’s Trans-Siberian Railway guidebook.
For connoisseurs of obscure rail routes, the Trans-Manchurian Railway ranks high on the wish list. It’s not on the main line to Vladivostok, nor does it take the ‘tourist route’ via Mongolia; rather, the weekly Vostok (19/20) chugs through China’s rust belt, where foreign faces are few and far between.
