Beijing-Paris by Train

paris china beijingIf we were in a movie, I would definitely choose the train option to go from China to Paris. This is a very famous route. It is perfect for those who aren’t afraid of spending too much time in such a place.
If you are really thinking of plan something like this adventure, you have two options:

  • You can book a train from Beijing to Moscow and then from Moscow to Paris. It costs about 800-900 euros. The trouble is that the Paris-Moscow train does not circulate every day. So you have to be very precise in your organization.
  • Or, you can book the tickets for the most important cities you want to visit and then live the full adventure by getting off where you want and moving towards Paris by train you choose time by time.

This is the adventure of a lifetime. The real plus of this choice is that you will pass through different areas of the world. You will experience different time zones! And you can experience all this by taking a train or by following your own personal path by car.
