The Grand TRANS-SIBERIAN Express [Cruise on Rails” First Class Experience]

An anthology of seven short films of my experience on board the Grand Trans-Siberian Express, the premium “cruise on rails” version of famed Trans-Siberian Railway. Our route took us eastward from Moscow to Ulaanbaatar over the course of 12 days, with guided day trips in between long hours in transit on the train.

I had the good fortune of joining this trip thanks to Aeroflot Russian Airlines. The GTSE also generously upgraded us to their premium, $12,000++ Deluxe Gold Cabins.

Special thanks to Aeroflot Russian Airlines (Philippines) and the men and women of the GTSE for a grand journey.

Our Trans-Siberian DISASTER // Ulan Ude to Vladivostok

The last vlog of my Trans-siberian series and the last train ride we took, 72 hours from Ulan Due to Vladivostok. Pretty much a disaster ride and definitely not the most fun!

I think if you're more prepared it wouldn't have been so bad, or we you pay more money for a more expensive train you would be guaranteed food. All in all it was a very cool (but long) journey and adventure that I guess we secretly loved.

After more research I learned that because the restaurant carts aren't getting used enough, they are slowly taking them put of service on many routes in Russia!

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the travel bug! We started traveling full-time January 10, 2016. While daily vlogging was not the original plan, we were having way too many cool experiences not to share every single day! Now travel vlogging is our full-time gig and we feel like we have the greatest job in the world! We are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. :)

What is it like to travel FIRST CLASS on the Trans Siberian Railway? Join us as we travel from Russia to Ulaanbataar Mongolia on the Transsiberian train. After having travelled in second class and even a shorter ride in third class, we decided it was time to up the ante and travel in luxury (for once). In this video, you'll get a first class train tour as we show you our wagon on the overnight train!

We've fallen in love with train travel and the Transsiberian railway has really stolen our heart. After travelling more than 5000 km by train through Russia, we're finally going to Mongolia. We're super excited to reach Ulaanbataar (Ulan Bator in English). Our train journey has taken us from Tallin in Estonia, to Saint-Peterburg and Moscow to the middle of Russia, Yekaterinburg. Afterwards we travelled 56 hours on a train to reach the heart of Siberia in Irkutsk where we visited one of the highlights of Russia, Lake Baikal.

FIRST CLASS Coach | Trans-Siberian Railway

We have saved the best for last! Today we're stepping up and bawling out. It's time for FIRST CLASS on the Trans-Siberian Railway!

#Trans-siberian #russia #train

Today's video is all about first-class travel (for us). We don't usually travel in style but we figure that we've earned it. We've spent the past 2-3 months traveling the trans-Mongolian / trans-Siberian railway from Beijing, through Mongolia and finally Russia all the way to Moscow. We've had some incredible stops along this magnificent railway line including Ulaanbaatar (Mongolia), Irkutsk and Lake Baikal (Siberia) and last but not least Yekaterinburg (Siberia). Today we finish our Trans-Siberian journey in Moscow.

The first class wagon on Russian trains is a comfortable way to travel. In this video, we look at the key differences between first class, second class, and hard sleeper. We check out the restaurant car and show you some of the wonders of the railway.

Travelling in Russia was a dream come true. Not only did we have the luxury of travelling on the Trans-Siberian Railway but we also got to explore some of Russia's lesser-known sites. If you've been thinking about travelling to Russia there's no time like the present.

The Trans Siberian Railway: A Journey of Epic Proportions

Opened in stages between 1891 and 1916, the extraordinary Trans-Siberian Railway runs like a steel ribbon across Russia's vast interior. At 9,288 kilometres in length, it is the longest and arguably the greatest railway journey in the world.
In this talk, hosted by our most-experienced Tour Manager, Tatiana Kolesnikova, you will hear how this remarkable engineering feat was achieved and what a journey along this momentous railway aboard the Golden Eagle train looks like today.

In the Q&A section at the end, Tatiana and our Marketing Manager, Natasha, answer questions from the audience, including;
- What are the main differences between a Trans-Siberian journey in the summer and the winter (apart from the weather of course)?
- Is there a preference for travelling Eastbound, from Moscow to Vladivostok, or Westbound?
- How does the train stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer?
- What do the cabins aboard the Golden Eagle train look like?

The Trans-Siberian Railway:
The Trans-Siberian Railway (TSR, Russian: Транссиби́рская магистра́ль, tr. Transsibirskaya Magistral; IPA: is a network of railways connecting Moscow with the Russian Far East. With a length of 9,289 kilometres (5,772 miles), it is the longest railway line in the world. There are connecting branch lines into Mongolia, China and North Korea. It has connected Moscow with Vladivostok since 1916, and is still being expanded.
It was built between 1891 and 1916 under the supervision of Russian government ministers personally appointed by Tsar Alexander III and his son, the Tsarevich Nicholas (later Tsar Nicholas II). Even before it had been completed, it attracted travellers who wrote of their adventures.
The Trans-Siberian line remains the most important transport link within Russia; around 30% of Russian exports travel on the line. While it attracts many foreign tourists, it gets most of its use from domestic passengers.
Today the Trans-Siberian Railway carries about 200,000 containers per year to Europe. Russian Railways intends to at least double the volume of container traffic on the Trans-Siberian and is developing a fleet of specialised cars and increasing terminal capacity at the ports by a factor of 3 to 4. By 2010, the volume of traffic between Russia and China could reach 60 million tons (54 million tonnes), most of which will go by the Trans-Siberian.
With perfect coordination of the participating countries' railway authorities, a trainload of containers can be taken from Beijing to Hamburg, via the Trans-Mongolian and Trans-Siberian lines in as little as 15 days, but typical cargo transit times are usually significantly longer and typical cargo transit time from Japan to major destinations in European Russia was reported as around 25 days.
According to a 2009 report, the best travel times for cargo block trains from Russia's Pacific ports to the western border (of Russia, or perhaps of Belarus) were around 12 days, with trains making around 900 km (559 mi) per day, at a maximum operating speed of 80 km/h (50 mph). However, in early 2009, Russian Railways announced an ambitious Trans-Siberian in Seven Days programme; according to this plan, $11 billion will be invested over the next five years to make it possible for goods traffic to cover the same 9,000 km (5,592 mi) distance in just seven days. The plan will involve increasing the cargo trains' speed to 90 km/h (56 mph) in 2010–12, and, at least on some sections, to 100 km/h (62 mph) by 2015. At these speeds, goods trains will be able to cover 1,500 km (932 mi) per day.
