Book review

by Bryn Thomas

TRAVELLING in Russian and China has become easier as the countries open up, and Trailblazer's definitive guide to the route has been revised by James Pitkin to reflect the latest information on these increasingly popular trips.

The 482-page seventh edition covers the Trans-Siberian line from Moscow to Vladivostok, and the Trans-Manchurian and Trans-Mongolian routes from the Russian capital to Beijing. The comprehensive coverage includes timetables and tourist information. The 70 maps include 38 strip maps of the routes to accompany the kilometre-by-kilometre guides to sights on the way.
