Book review

by Bryn Thomas

More than 70 000 copies of this pocket-sized travel guide to the Trans-Siberian, Trans-Manchurian and Trans-Mongolian routes have been sold. For this sixth edition, additional information has been prepared with the independent traveller in mind, and the 38 strip maps covering the routes have been redrawn.

Within the 448-page handbook is a wealth of useful information for anyone planning to cross Russia, whether as a tourist on a week-long Trans-Siberian trip or a dedicated rail passenger attempting to travel by train from Vila Real de Santo António in Portugal to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.
