Beijing-Ulaan Batar

by ireneric Online Now Dec 14, 2006 at 12:16 PM

Hi! We are two Spanish people who are planning to travel on july to Mongolia. Flights to Ulaan Batar are quite expensive, so we are thinking about flying to Beijing and taking the train from there to Ulaan Batar. We would like to know the prices and the schedules, and how to buy them from Barcelona. It would be also interesting to know if it's worth to pay for the first class seats.
Otherwise, we should be arriving on the 12th of July, so we would like to know if the trains are reliable just to avoid to miss a wedding we are celebrating there.
We've got plenty of time, so there's no problem if we have to arrive there some days before.
Thank you very much, we're looking forward to your advices!

    Hi, I can help you as we go often there and have friends who can do all to realize your plans and dreams

    why don't you from spain fly to Mongolia with aeroflot changing on Moscow. not expensive.. just have look.. from paris and milan fly is over 750€

    to buy your ticket for Ub from Pekin you just have to mail to: RICHARD TIAM he is really wonderful to have train ticket, as you go there in summer and during nadam period you must book your train ticket early as sometimes on may already all sold out. Richard do mirqacle but better to book advance! also for palne ticket from spain or France to Moscoaw-Ub or to bejing
    read as following

    Beijing-U.B. with TRANSMOGOLIAN: 2/3 times /week according to the season. In Beijing it can be difficult to get a ticket in advance for the way Beijing- U.B. (you can wait until 2 weeks beforehand, so go to Datong to buy a ticket quickly); in any case you have to buy the ticket on CITS office chenh@cits.com.cn, tel:0086-010 -l85228408

    OR CONTACT: Richard Tian: richard@oceantravel.com.cn or oceantravelcn@yahoo.com.cn

    Idea: go to Erlian/ Zamyd-Uud (border with China and Mongolia) pass the border by taxi and then train or bus for Beijing or train for UB this train is daily, longer but safe and in thsi one not booking requierted and so you can be on time as daily, the other one only 3 times/week

    PS: Don't rush out of the train, it is then that the pickpockets operate! Some board the train to rob the unaware. Look after your luggage, and DO NOT use porters!

    IN PARIS to buy tickets: cct.france@wanadoo.fr, China Comfort Travel France, 31 bd Malesherbes - 75008 Paris tel : (33) 01 42 66 49 51 - fax (33) 01 42 66 49 55
