Fascinating Asia by Rail

BY AUDREY CHEN
May 28, 2009

The most extensive is between Beijing and Moscow (in either direction), spanning almost 10,000 kilometres—one third around the world!—eight time zones, and a dazzling kaleidoscope of landscapes and cultures. If you only take one rail journey in your life, this has to be it.

Rated one of the 10 most luxurious train rides in the world, this is not called Palace on Wheels for nothing, For your money you get to luxuriate in cream salons named after former Rajput states and indulge in feasts worthy of kings as forbidding fortresses and opulent palaces unfold before your eyes. The history of India and the ancient kingdoms of Rajasthan come alive in this most royal of rail journeys.
