Welcome to Trans-Siberian Tips!

The website for individual travel on the Trans-Siberian Railway

When I planned my journey on the Trans-Siberian Railway two years ago, I discovered that there was very little information about it on the internet. The few available sites were either selling their own extremely expensive travel packages or were hopelessly out of date. I therefore decided to share my experiences with other travellers on my own website after my tour. To start with: Even though quite a few things have to be organised and planned beforehand, the trip with the Trans-Siberian Railway is an amazingly exciting and intense experience. Even today I can’t go past a map of the world without gazing at that extraordinary stretch of railway line halfway round the world and remembering the numerous experiences I had. I hope my site helps you to enjoy a similar experience. I am always happy to receive your feedback, travelogues or answer your questions via my contact form.
