Trans-Siberian Handbook

Bryn Thomas

The fifth edition of this travellers’ guide has been updated to take advantage of the removal, for the first time in Russian history, of most restrictions on tourist travel in Siberia. This pocket-sized volume contains new and updated maps, and the 432 pages have been fully re-researched since the previous edition. There are route guides to the Trans-Siberian, Trans-Manchurian and Trans-Mongolian railways, historical details, city maps, and useful Russian and Chinese phrases.
