Why the Luxury Silk Road Train Tour?

Every so often, we here at Life of Riley even surprise ourselves by the incredible adventures we uncover and the Luxury Silk Road Train Tour is exactly what we mean. Forget what you’ve heard about train because this isn’t the 18:05 commuter train to Greenwich, this is la crème de la crème.

James Bond never travelled between Moscow and Beijing but if he did, he’d do it with luxury sleeping carriages, personal attendants, a private bathroom fully stocked with L’Occitane products and much more…

Oh, and while he’s travelling on the aptly named “The Golden Eagle” train, he’d be sipping Martinis at some of the world’s most auspicious sites along the way…

What’s so special about This Silk Road Train trip?

For centuries, merchants, adventurers have traded silk, spice, furs and perfume, riding their camels along the stunning Silk Road and now you can follow in Marco Polo, Alexander the Great and the Princes of Muscovy’s footsteps.

Spread over 21-days, this epic 4,000km trip through Russia, Kazakstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and China, will take you to The Terracotta Army, the heritage of Tashkent, Bukhara markets and teahouses, the fabled city of UNESCO-listed Samarkand and its towering mausoleum tomb of Tamerlane.

Shorter trips, a westbound Beijing to Moscow and a ‘Stans trip to/from Almaty are also available… but sadly 2017 is the last year this itinerary will be available. So what are you waiting for, click the button because the spice must flow!
