Trans-Mongolian Trip Report

Date of Trip: October 2005

I bought the Brussels - Moscow tickets on line from Die Bahn for 229.5 Euros.

For the Moscow -- Hong Kong portion, I purchased on line with a company called Sokol Tours. I found them to be the cheapest after spending 6 hours or so looking. They charged me about $US 1000 for the tickets. However, the ticket prices were printed on the tickets, and thus if you wanted to try and buy the tickets yourself you might get a much better deal. However, trying to deal with ticket agents without language skills could be a problem. Some people who purchased tickets were charged extra fees in addition to the ones listed on the tickets.

  • Paris - Brussels = 71 Euros or $US 83.54 for seat.
  • Brussels - Moscow = 229.5 Euros or $US 270.05 for shared cabin sleeper with 3 people
  • Moscow - Irkutsk = 3780.1 Rubles or $US 131.00 for shared cabin sleeper with 4 people
  • Irkutsk - U.B. = 1617.8 Rubles or $US 56.07 for shared cabin sleeper with 4 people
  • U.B. - Jining = 40580 Mongolian or $US 34.22 for shared cabin sleeper with 4 people
  • Jining - Beijing = 83 RMB or $US 10.26 for open dorm style sleeper (lower bunk)
  • Beijing - Hong Kong = 646 RMB or $US 79.87 for open dorm style sleeper (middle bunk)
