First of all, Happy Women's Day to all the wonderful ladies out there! I hope you enjoy a wonderful day!
Today is question and answer day, so I will recap some of the recent question I've received, lets get started:
Question: I am considering the Trans-Siberian Express departing from Moscow in August and ending the trip in Bejing. Is that a good time of year to go? From what we read it is best to travel by 1st class cabin. The price we see (per person) is $1,000USD. Can you offer suggestions for the trip and a price?
Answer: yes, August is considered to be a very good time for the trip in terms of the weather, do you need just a one-way ticket to Beijing or would you like to make stops on the way? In this case several tickets + hotels will be needed. You can find some examples here Trans-Siberian Express, and here is another link to the train schedule that might be useful Train Schedule.
Question: Looking to travel to Nizhny Novgorod. Any advice on who do I get my visa from and what airline to fly.
Answer: Nizhny Novgorod has some specific rules, if a foreigner crosses the border at the Nizhny Novgorod airport, then he has to have an inviting organization located in Nizhny Novgorod. Express to Russia can help you with this through one of their partners, but it will be more expensive. They can also help you with booking a hotel, here is a link to hotels Best Hotels Russia.
That's all the questions I have for today, get your questions in for next week! Tomorrow will be apartment of the week day! Stay tuned.
Happy 8th of March to all!
