    What? Surely it can be way longer if you add detours? Or is this all on one track?

      You’ll have to change services a few times and there will be gauge differences at some points. Plus there are ticketing boundaries so you can’t just buy a ticket for the whole thing. But yes, it’s essentially a single line across Eurasia.

    You got me interested. But what share of the journey can be made in sleeper trains? I do prefer a 4 hour train ride than a one hour flight. But 5+ hours seated in a train piss me off. Most of the journey seems like trans siberian and the Paris Moscow train, which I think foreigners cannot board as we are not allowed to enter Belarus by train.

      In 2019 you could do Moscow-Pyongyang without a single transfer.
      With a single transfer you could do Nice-Moscow-Pyongyang.
      Right now the longest single journey is Moscow-Vladivostok, the longest journey with a single transfer probably being Brest[BY]-Moscow-Vladivostok.

      Entering Belarus by train wasn't a problem, the problem was crossing the Belarus-Russia border,.

      Prior to the botched Ukrainian invasion you could get transit visas for Belarus with not much difficulty. I don’t know what the situation is like now.

    I am ... almost....doing it.
    I wish Russia as a country wasn't the equivalent of a drug addict that lives outside your office that you watch get a little more dead and a little more addicted every day. What a waste of land.

    June 2024. We are taking 10.5 months so some bigger stops along the way of course.
    The original plan was to do it in full, as shown, but fucking Russia happens to the shitbrained country on the planet, so now we are routing down from Poland into Turkey and only getting off the train to cross the Caspian. Then back on the train in Kazakhstan and continuing through Xinjiang down to Kunming to continue the original route down to Singapore. When we get to Asian Pacific we are spending about a month each in Indonesia, Philippines and Taiwan. I can type up a whole breakdown of estimated times we plan to spend in each place along the way if anyone is interested in a blog post.

        I'm mad that Russia failed so hard in their invasion, if they'd invade and win and be done with it I'd have no problems with it.

        Sure, if you want to believe that.
        Are you mad your cousin got Javelin'd in Bucha?
        Did your flight to flee Russian mobilization bankrupt your family or did you send your sister in a seacan to Dubai to be a cocksleeve to fund it? I hope the second, its probably a better life for her anyways.

      wow why would you do this to yourself? When I was a student I'd take a ferry boat and a bus to travel back home, typically 17-20 hours door to door, but it was once or twice a year and I wanted to off myself at the end of the route.

          No I'm in europe, but still that's the sort of trip you bite the bullet and buy a plane ticket for.
          If you have stuff to send just send them with a moving company or something.

    The world has grown smaller, since a man can now go round it ten times more quickly than a hundred years ago.

      You have a strange way, of proving that the world has grown smaller. So, because you can go round it in three months, it means the world is now reduced in size ?

          This. Only eighty days, now that the section between Rothal and Allahabad, on the Great Indian Peninsula Railway, has been opened. Here is the estimate made by the Daily Telegraph:

          >From London to Suez via Mont Cenis and Brindisi, by rail and steamboats : ................. 7 days
          >From Suez to Bombay, by steamer .................................................................................. 13 "
          >From Bombay to Calcutta, by rail .......................................................................................3 "
          >From Calcutta to Hong Kong, by steamer ......................................................................... 13 "
          >From Hong Kong to Yokohama (Japan), by steamer ........................................................ 6 "
          >From Yokohama to San Francisco, by steamer ................................................................ 22 "
          >From San Francisco to New York, by rail .......................................................................... 7 "
          >From New York to London, by steamer and rail ................................................................ 9
          Total ................................................................................................................................... 80 days."

    I love pointlessly long journeys like this and if I had the opportunity I would do this, although I have done most of it already.
    Ive done Beijing - Moscow over 3 weeks through Mongolia and it was brilliant, I know some people don't get it but train travel is an experience in itself. The people you meet along the way, the places you go through, I'm not sure why, perhaps it's the old school whimsy of it but I really enjoy it.
