    We enjoyed the train travel from Ulaanbatar to Moscow, but we still regretted not having a stop at Irkusk to enjoy a full view of Lake Baikal. This was the longest train journey we’ve ever took but the views along the road was really nice.

    My train trip from Ulaanbaatar to Beijing was really nice. I bought my tickets from Agatetravel and my ticket was waiting for me when I checked in at my hotel. The procedure for boarding is really simple, platform is next to main building. I boarded on the train sooner after the attendant checked my ticket.
