What exactly do you get up to when you’re on a train for more than 16 hours? Make friends and drink Brandy apparently…
Border crossing: China to Mongolia by train
We took the Trans-Mongolian from Beijing to Ulaanbaatar, which included a three-hour bogie-changing adventure in the middle of the night.
Border crossing: Vietnam to China by train
We said goodbye to Vietnam and took the night train over the border to China. From there, we took our first high speed train to Guilin.
Hoi An to Hanoi by train
We took the overnight train from Da Nang to Hanoi, but first, we had to get to the station from Hoi An.
Ho Chi Minh City to Hoi An by train
It was time to begin our train adventures. Our destination – an overnight train from Ho Chi Minh City to Da Nang and then a 40-minute drive to Hoi An.
The great railway adventure
Over 43 days, we travelled from Cambodia to England, took 11 train rides, visited 10 countries and had many crazy adventures along the way.
