Trans-Siberian Railway - Ulan-Ude to Vladivostok (PDF Chapter)


This is the Ulan-Ude to Vladivostok chapter from Lonely Planet’s Trans-Siberian Railway guidebook.

The Trans-Siberian’s last leg covers a staggering 3648km as it rolls into Russia’s ‘wild east’. This region has always lived by its own rules. ‘Moscow is far’ runs the local mantra. The people, like the countryside, are a bit wilder and more rugged than their Western brethren.
