I'm taking the trains siberian express from moscow to beijing, stopping of in beijing for five days then taking another train from there to hong kong then i'm spending six months in Australia. My question is seeing i'm going it alone is the trains siberian express safe and will I be sorry about packing up and doing this by myself??
The train is always busy with so many people - most of whom are tourists. You'll be just fine and it won't be more than an hour or so before you've struck up a conversation with someone.
If you need any advice at all, it's simply - when you're ready for sleeping, safely stash away your cash, passport etc. in a very secure area, if you get my drift.
Have a great trip.
Yes it's safe there is railway police who take cares and yes flyingbob is right he also sharing a great point.
Hey thanks for your posts. Im really looking forward to heading off!!!
